What to Do With Your Share---Week 10

Summer is heading towards its peak. The tomatoes are coming on, the eggplant is kicking in, the tomatillos are filling out, and the root harvest is in full gear. Hard to believe that the days are actually getting shorter.

This week we are able to have some salsa packs be a share choice for the fulls. If you aren't familiar with them, all you need to know is on our 2009 blog posts for fresh and roasted salsa. Just add a tomato and you will be in condiment heaven.

For us tonight we supplemented our vegetables with some protein and carbs. Beans have entered the menu a lot this year, as we try to keep our protein consumption high during this strenuous season. Onions, eggplant and garlic, followed by chopped tomatoes, pinto beans and tomato paste cooked together and served over brown rice is filling, nutritious and easy.

In the field we are doing some feeding too. As a part of our SARE project we are working on perfecting a seeder to plant our cover crops. Getting a good cover crops stand is one of the most important things we can do. If the soil doesn't eat, we don't eat. We will see soon how this round of trialing has done.
