Nothing like picking up your CSA share in the rain. Of course if I would have just waited 45 minutes, everything would have cleared up. It's sunny now. C'est la vie.
Lots of exciting stuff going on this week. I start my new job on Wednesday. D is in the final dissertation stretch--he defends a week from Monday. We actually managed to go out and do something fun together last night (facilitated by ConEd doing some work on the building where D's lab is and shutting off the power from 8 until midnight).
So, in order to use that time for something that wasn't sitting around and being stressed out by our respective goings on, we went to Sxip Shirey's Hour of Charm and saw a bunch of great musical performances, heard a few really good story tellers, and listened to a guy give a talk/lecture on the history of the f-word. We had a lot of fun. Then at midnight we walked back over to the lab building and D turned the computers and the server back on, so he could get work done from home in the morning. And we could go back to reality. Sigh.
In spite of being up until 1 AM (which, as you all know, is ridiculously late for me), I woke up at about 8:30, so I decided to hop in the shower and then just go pick up my CSA share at around 9 as I would any other day.
And now I am drowning in tomatoes.
This week's share:
- 1 head of cauliflower
- a bunch of carrots
- a small bunch of French breakfast radishes
- a cantaloupe
- 2 red peppers--they're long, but I think they're still sweet peppers.
- 1 lb beefsteak tomatoes
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes
- 1 lb heirloom tomatoes from the veggie share
- an additional 3 lbs mixed heirloom tomatoes from the tomato share--there's definitely a few more black princes and some green zebras. Maybe a peach tomato. Can anyone identify any of the others?
- 3.5 lbs peaches
- 6 eggs
Any other thoughts/suggestions? Guesses on the peppers (sweet or hot)?
