This box is pretty green again, and no fruit (except the tomatoes) – not up our alley.
The good: pickle cucumber (we’ll just eat them – though the quantity is a lot), wax beans, green beans, red leaf lettuce, green pepper
The ok: zucchini (not anyone’s favorites, but we’ll eat them), romano beans (never cooked them, but we can give it a try), basil & scallions (I can use these, but not in the quantity given), plum tomatoes (not what I’d usually buy for eating, but we can probably make use of them), radish, garlic, muskmelon (not sure I’ve ever had one, so we’ll try it)
The waste/donate: beets, tuscan kale, eggplant, kohlrabi
I need to pick 9 items this week, which is big for this list. I’ll go with the “good” plus romano beans & muskmelon (to try them both) as well as plum tomatoes and garlic.
Unfortunately there’s so much in season right now that we do love that’s not on the list that I’m feeling particularly uninspired. Corn, tomatoes, blueberries, peaches, plums, and early apples would all make my shopping list ahead of many of these things. Today or tomorrow I’ll have to try to hit up the farmer’s market for some of these items.
