We are very sad to say goodbye to August. It was a beautiful month. We had lots of fun, outdoor time with the kiddos, lots of relaxing and enjoying the beautiful weather, our garden was abundantly flourishing so many veggies, and our CSA was awesome as usual.
Here’s a recap of the month:
Week 9: pickle cucumber, Tuscan kale, zucchini squash, wax beans, romano beans, eggplant, basil, wild blueberries
Recipes: smoothies, salads, blueberry muffins
Week 10: peaches, cucumbers, radish, zucchini, wax beans, Tuscan kale, red leaf lettuce, baby arugula, green pepper + fish share: tuna (excuse the photography this week – it was pouring and we were on our way out of town!)
Week 11: chinese eggplant, green beans, zucchini, tomatoes, Tuscan kale, basil, baby spinach, red leaf lettuce, gold beets
Recipes: tomato + cucumber salads, green smoothies, chicken & zucchini poppers
Week 12: tomatoes, corn, green pepper, zucchini, green leaf lettuce, summer squash, muskmelon, pickle cucumber, beets, wax beans + fish share: cod
August is a big month for tomatoes and zucchini in our own garden. The tomatoes grew so tall this year and yielded a huge amount of tomatoes. Just this month we have made and canned three batches of salsa – that’s 30 pounds of tomatoes in salsa! We also made one batch of sauce with another 10 pounds of tomatoes. We grow primarily Roma tomatoes and they are perfect for both of these recipes. Zucchini has been quite plentiful as well. We have made zucchini poppers (chicken + zucchini meatballs, recipe coming I promise) every week this month. We have also made zucchini noodles or zoodles, and we have given a lot away to our friends!
What do you make with tomatoes this time of year?
Until next time…
