inside the cooler, weeks 21 & 22

Week 21. Green tomatoes! Who would have guessed. We turned those into a green tomato soup that was pretty ok. Not great, but pretty ok. We also got radishes, cauliflower, Jersualem artichokes (sunchokes), Christmas spinach, arugula and sweet onions.

Sad, the last week of the Summer 2011 CSA deliveries from Kilpatrick Family Farm. Sigh. We rounded out our locavore summer with a gigantic bunch of kale, broccoli, shallots, garlic, fennel, salad mix, peppers and a jar of salsa. Went out with a bang, eh?

So that's the end of this season's Inside the Cooler series. Thanks for sticking with me and showing a bit of interest in weekly photos of vegetables in a cooler. Tomorrow I'll share a few things I've learned from my first CSA: veggies I didn't know I liked, ones I'm still not sure with, advice for those interested in joining a farm share program... all of that. Tune in :)


  1. green tomatoes always come at the end because they're the ones that didn't turn into proper tomatoes! maybe fry them in buttermilk batter with cornmeal? and those jerusalem artichokes... they deserve to be turned into a soup!! :)

  2. Great minds think alike... those Jerusalem artichokes WERE turned into a soup! http://www.unspeakablevisions.com/2011/10/sunday-soup-sunchoke-turnip-carrot.html
