Yes, this week there were surplus tomatoes available to all who wanted to pick them up. All we can figure is that there must have been some people who weren’t able to pick up their share. Or, perhaps, Farmer Frank sent down extras to replace any that were damaged in transit. Whatever happened, we were grateful to pick up four extra Taxi tomatoes.
Our full share included:
- Eggplant (4)
- Summer squash, aka zucchini (3)
- Red La Soda potatoes (7)
- Tomatillos (1 basket, traded for more tomatoes)
- Yellow Taxi tomatoes (1 basket)
- Carrots (1 bunch)
- Sun Jewel Melon (1)
- Red Cimarron onions (1 basket)
We’ve already had the melon for breakfast, several tomatoes (yum!, yum!, yum!), and the squash (sticked, battered, and fried, plus just sticked with a dipping sauce).
