Local Box Meal Plan for June 2-6

Just got word of this week’s Local Box contents! We’ve got green tomatoes (Ringger Farm), sweet corn (Acadian), italian cucumber (Buena Tierra), green beans (Animal Farm), patty pan squash (Naegelin), carrots (Tecolote), mangoes (G&S Groves), peaches (Caskey), beets (Tecolote), and blackberries (Naegelin). So this week, I’m making:

Snacks (sometimes it’s best just to eat these as is!):

  • Mangoes
  • Peaches


  • Carrot-ginger soup (I’m one of those people who’s freezing no matter how hot it is outside.)




As a Yank, I’m pretty excited about the green tomatoes! How do you make green tomatoes? Got any family recipes to share?
