Farm Fresh Ventures Box #4

This box came packed full of even more goodies...

Kale, field tomatoes, new potatoes, jalapeños, peaches, pickling cucumbers, sweet corn, cantaloupe

Mom and I gave the cantaloupe and a couple of peaches to someone at church.  Mom stewed the corn.  That was good.  She also sauteed the kale and sauteed some zucchini and yellow squash with onions and red bell pepper.  Those two dishes she served for Sunday dinner.  Yum again.

I never used the tomatillos from last week.  I was planning on making a roasted tomatillo salsa but couldn't find any jalapeños in the store (weird).  Fortunately jalapeños came in this box so now I can make that salsa this week.  For the rest of the jalapeños, I'm going to make a flavored vinegar.

As for the peaches, I did eat one or two, but the rest are going in the freezer.  I do like peaches, but only when firm like an apple when eaten straight out, otherwise, I like them peeled and sliced in other dishes.  I'm seriously considering a peach salsa or chutney just to see if I like it.  I imagine I would.


  1. I've never heard of peach salsa, but it sounds like something I'd like!

  2. hi libby! the box of veggies look so good! from our garden, we are eating kale, green beans, onions & lettuce. i'm envious of your tomatoes as ours are still green & hard. we have grapes but they too are green and hard...all in good time :)

  3. Peach salsa would be fabulous! And the kale, wonderful!

  4. I always eat peaches peeled: have them in the fridge and eat one after dinner as dessert, or healthy snack in the afternoon.

    Those tomatoes and cucumber would make an excellent Spanish summer salad with some olives or a Greek one if you add feta cheese. Just dress them with a pinch of salt, vinegar and olive oil. Yum! :-)

  5. I try to like kale, I really do, but I just can't like it. I do eat it occasionally though.
