|Willow and Oolong love the mystery box. Really.|
|Peppers, the new cat toy.|
In their words, the box program is:
"What: Guerrilla vegetable deliveries: Not a CSA, we have one of those. More like a taco truck-meets-the farmers market. No prepayment, no credit cards. You give me your cell phone number as collateral that you'll show up, I give you mine so you can find me/contact me that night. We don't abuse each others cell numbers.
Why: Mariquita Customers at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market missed us when we chose to stop attending spring of 2007. Some of our customers begged for a way to still receive our erbette chard, boxes of San Marzanos, sweet peppers, basil, red carrots etc. We still grow it all and we're delighted to find a way bring it to SF, even if you *don't* own a restaurant!"
Here is a look at this week's box:
|The box arrives at home.Oolong is eager to investigate.|
|Portuguese Cabbage: Any suggestions?|
|Egyptian Beets soon to be roasted. |
|Red Norland Potatoes: probably to be roasted.|
|Green bell peppers: suggestions again welcome.|
|Cayenne Peppers (Spicy): I'll dry these.|
|Butternut Squash: to be roasted.|
|Dry-Farmed Early Girl Tomatoes: Perhaps for a lat tomato mozzarella salad?|
|The pdf led me to expect Broccoli di Cicco, but clearly: purple cauliflower, soon to be roasted.|
Gala Apple: Apple crisp time.
