Week of August 24th

I’ve been totally crushing on carnival squash. I’ve always liked it in years past, but this year they are the best I’ve tasted. You might have passed right by these little unassuming squashes at the market. Little did you know, they are packed with huge flavor and could used for dessert they are so sweet. I like to bake them and eat them plain or fry some eggs up and make a breakfast out of them. I’ve also included strawberries in the CSA box this week (which are not quite in season, but this mild climate allows them to grow). We feel very grateful to be able to provide these things for you this week. Hope you enjoy. Share your recipes on instagram #somethinggoodorganics.
The little grape tomatoes and slices of cantaloupe are great in lunchboxes. Hope everyone is having success gearing back up for the school year. I can’t believe another summer has come and gone!

A note about our fruit expansion: There’s very little local, organic fruit to be sourced around here. We’ve planted about 30 fruit trees, but we still have a year+ before we see any fruit. We will keep including more berries in our fruit expansion until we can get some more variety.
