The melons are here! the melons are here! And the beans are finally coming in from my pocket garden.
We got melons in both the vegetable and fruit share this week - so many that I gave several to my co-workers. I also gave away the surplus bell peppers and last week's frying peppers which only 1 person in my family eats.
From the CSA
“Candy Sweet” Onion
Sugar Cube Cantaloupe (the little ones) x 2
From the Garden
Zucchini (grown by a co-worker)
and the occasional blackberry and cherry tomato that isn't even making it back into the house
And in honor of the 9 days leading up to Tisha B'Av, where it is traditional to only eat meat on the Sabbath, I'd like to plug my favorite Middle Eastern vegetarian cookbook Olive Trees and Honey: A Treasury of Vegetarian Recipes from Jewish Communities Around the World - Gil Marks
