Super String Beans

weekly CSA produce share
That bundle up in front is green beans, believe it or don’t.

Sure, this makes look as if we got a bunch of pieces of red rope in our weekly share, but no. Those are green beans. Really. They’re an heirloom variety of “red noodle beans”, developed in China. Cool, huh? You generally don’t find things like that at the local grocer. We think that’s one of the best things about joining a CSA; you get whatever the farmer grows, and, with our Farmer Frank, it seems as though he likes to try something new and different every year, making for some pickups that are full of interesting vegetables.

Our weeks share included:

  • Red noodle beans (1 bunch)
  • Tomatoes (1 basket) — looks like Yellow Taxi variety
  • Corn (2 ears)
  • Watermelon (1)
  • Shishito peppers (1 basket)
  • Apples (2)
  • Roasted green chilies (1 bag) — traded for more apples
  • Red potatoes (4)
