I added a lot of stuff to this week's CSA box - more organic, fair trade, locally roasted coffee (called Farmy Fuel), some NM Valencia peanuts and peanut butter, extra strawberries, and some sourdough bread from Sage Bakehouse. In the center are our first tomatoes of the year - next week I'm thrilled we're getting two pounds and I'll post links to some of my favorite tomato recipes. We haven't cooked much this week and we've been busy so it is amazing to see how little of the box is actually left 4 days later.
We're now getting peas regularly from our garden. The poor zucchini plants were raided twice by ground squirrels - they managed to get in the cold frame under the screen and ate both leaves and blossoms . I think we've finally figured out how to keep them out and the plants are recovering.
These are a variation on the cherry muffins in Vegan with a Vengeance. I made them and the oatmeal-raisin cookies for DH to take on a Colorado high country backpacking trip last weekend. He says they were well-received by his fellow hikers.
