Himself and I drove out to Dover last Sunday to attend “Farm Day” at the farm that does the CSA boxes I’ve been enjoying all summer. We were able to see where the veggies have come from and to enjoy a vegetarian lunch made foods harvested at Doalnara.
The cooler weather has made it possible for a fall crop of lettuce.
The cabbages are just beautiful!
This made me want to cook up a spinach casserole!
My freezer is full of bell peppers I’ve gotten all summer.
And I’ve enjoyed several ‘messes’ of fried okra too. I just dust mine in corn meal/flour and fry them up. I don’t care for the heavy battered fried okra.
Eggplant… I’ve seen a lot of those! I was asked if I could make something for the lunch and they would supply what I needed. I said I had a good eggplant casserole and would make up a batch or two from whatever they wanted to give me. When I picked up my veggie box last Wednesday… they gave me a half bushel of eggplant!! That’s a lot of peeling!
I didn’t know what this was. Found out it was an artichoke! Since it’s a biannual, this year it ‘takes its ground’ and next year it will bloom.
One of many greenhouses. This one had tomatoes, bok choy and lettuces.

And here’s the meal made from vegetables harvested from the farm. It was so good.
That’s my eggplant casserole in the glass baking dish.
Even the desserts were made with produce from the gardens.
Sadly, today will be my last CSA box for the year. I wonder what goodies I’ll find in it…
