a real summer harvest share

Today I felt like the real bounty had begun.  Enough with the greens, let's get on to heavier vegetables!  Things like cabbage, carrots, & zucchini that require (and build) muscle in the lifting of the boxes.  The beets were just glowing, as were the stems of rainbow chard & the fresh young carrots.  
And the round pale-green cabbages & kohlrabis...  crunchy & crisp, full of water & cancer-fighting goodness, these things will make you live forever.
I'm really enjoying making food these days... strolling around the farm to see what I'd like to eat, then combining several things with some fresh herbs maybe & chopping, steaming, roasting, marinading, & devouring!
