Lancaster Farm Fresh CSA Week 15

Another week, another CSA pick up. We got a few things I had never heard of, which is always exciting!

2 Red Bell Peppers – Certified Organic – Maple Arch Farm

1 Bunch Tatsoi – Certified Organic – Hillside Organics

2 Heads Baby Bok Choy – Certified Organic – Millwood Springs Organics

6 Ears Sweet Corn – Certified Organic – Pine Hill Organics

1 Bag Hungarian Peppers – Certified Organic – Soaring Eagle Acres

1 Bag Sweet Onions – Certified Organic – Soaring Eagle Acres

1 Squash – Certified Organic – Autumn Blend Organics

Hungarian peppers and tasoi? Those were two I had never heard of. The peppers seems to be similar to banana peppers, but with more flavor. Tatsoi is a member of the brassica family and from what I have read it tastes like a milder version of mustard greens.

Monthly Wrap Up
This also marks the end of August. I hate to say it, but I am kind of happy to see summer go. It was way too hot to even enjoy most of the days, and from what I have read Philly had the hottest summer on record. Coldest winter then hottest summer? What have I gotten myself in to…

For me, Lauren, August was definitely an interesting month. I made some pretty life changing goals which I hope to talk about in the next few days. On the workout front I had an awesome month and I ran OVER 100 MILES! I really can’t believe that I broke the 100 miler barrier. I recently added up all my monthly totals and I never even got close in previous months. The half marathon is in 3 weeks and I am still feeling strong, especially after my 15 miler this past weekend.

Eric had a great cycling month as well. He successfully rode his bike to work every day, a first! His monthly mileage totaled over 670. Maybe he can break 1,000 miles next month?

  1. beautiful produce as always!
    That is so cool that you ran over 100 miles last month!! It makes the 2 miles I ran yesterday seem so lame 🙂
    I really admire runners- I feel like half of it must be just getting motivated to DO it! Really cool about Eric’s month in cycling, too! I haven’t ridden (?) my bike since I moved to IL- I need to get with it!

  2. We got these really colorful and cute baby red, yellow and green peppers in ours and I am not sure exactly what to do with them. 🙂

  3. Hungarian peppers are very common here in Germany. They come in yellow and red. Funny that those are called Hungarian peppers in English – there are hundreds of different peppers in Hungary. They make awesome stuffed peppers!
