Whoa! Look at that Melon!

weekly CSA produce share
This was actually a medium-sized watermelon. We think it’s yellow inside (melon samples were available at the pick-up).

We had the heads-up that there would be watermelons to pick up at the CSA this week. The CSA tries to let members know ahead of time so they’re prepared — some people ride bicycles to pick up their shares, so you know that a bit of forewarning won’t go amiss. But, we didn’t realize just how big these watermelons would be. We picked out one that looked medium-size (many were even larger, some much larger) and it barely fits on the shelf in the refrigerator.

So, all told, this week we toted the following to the car:

  • Watermelon (1)
  • Lemon cucumbers (3)
  • Roasted Anaheim peppers (1 bag)
  • Patty-pan squash (6)
  • Shishito peppers (1 basket)
  • Yellow beans (1 bag)
  • Cubanelle peppers (5)
  • Roma tomatoes (1 basket)
