Terra Bella Family Farm CSA: week five

A little behind on posting this week's CSA.  We took a quick trip to Portland to see my dad (and other family, but mostly my dad).  To prove how much I'm loving the CSA I booked my return flight on Tuesday afternoon so I would get in on time to make the CSA pick up.  The fact that I got to fly on this plane just confirms that I made the right choice:
I know I could have asked a friend to do it but I really like going and picking out my produce - I like the process of it all.

This week I came home with:

1.5 pounds peaches
1.5 pounds pluots
1 bunch chard
1 head red leaf lettuce
1 bunch broccoli
red torpedo onions
gypsy peppers
summer squash
double olive bread

It was 100 degrees while we were gone and the garden looked a little unhappy to have suffered through that kind of heat.  Our nectarines should be ready in a week or so and we had the first two mulberries off the tree yesterday (we don't get a lot of berries on this tree so every single one is a treat)!  I finally had enough sweet 100's to use in our salad for dinner last night and it looks like there will be plenty more to follow.  I think I'll be cleaning up the mint today so maybe it will be a mojito night??
