finally got dry enough to get beds made and plants in the ground! fall lettuces, broccoli and cabbage
This weeks’ share: 1 1/2# yellow wax beans, 1 quart cherry tomatoes, 1 pint shishito peppers (not hot), 1 yellow bell and 1 sweet Italian pepper, 1# Chinese eggplant, 2 heads of garlic, 1 bunch of red beets.
The shishito peppers can be grilled or seared in a cast iron skillet whole. Turn until all sides are lightly blistered. Remove from heat, sprinkle with salt and nutritional yeast. Eat by themselves or serve alongside a main dish. They are not spicy but do have a nice flavor. Every once in awhile 1 will have some spice and red ones can be hot but not always.
The Chinese or ” machiaw” eggplant is great sautéed, grilled, or roasted. The skin is tender and can be eaten without peeling.
