Green beans and red plums ~ Week of October 6th

Super beautiful, full, lush box today! (Although no replacements for the missing stuff from last week… Still haven’t heard back from FFTY in response to my email. Boo.)

I ate one of the heirloom tomatoes with my dinner tonight and finally got a delicious tomato from my box! All summer they’ve been kind of watery and/or tasteless. But I just couldn’t get enough of the one I had tonight. (It’s the funny, pointy-looking red one in the picture.)

I’m really excited to have so many greens! The chard and collard greens make me purr with dark-leafy-green contentment. I need to be better about salad to use up the lettuce and arugula. And I have no idea what I’m going to do with all that cilantro… I should add that to my veto list!

Here’s what came in my pretty box this week:
Fuji apples (1 lb)
Red plums (1 lb)
Valencia oranges (2)
Leek (1)
Chard (1 bunch)
Collard greens (1 bunch)
Green beans (1.5 lbs)
Arugula (1 bunch – to replace the sweet peppers on my veto list)
Radishes (1 bunch)
Romaine lettuce (1 large head)
Mixed heirloom tomatoes (1 lb)
Cilantro (1 bunch)
Fennel (1 small bulb)
Fingerling potatoes (1.5 lbs)
