June 23, 2016 June 23, 2016 Mexican sour gherkins are back! Week 8 CSA: Huckleberry Gold potatoes, garlic, yellow & green beans, crookneck squash, tomatoes, Malabar spinach, and lots of pickling cukes with dill blossoms. Malabar spinach. Perfect in quiche, stir fries, lasagna, and curry. Beautiful hummingbird moth in the verbena. Zinnias in the flower field at dusk. Flower field during the day. Swallowtail chrysalis on dill. Honeybees (and larvae). It’s hot out! Prying apart the frames revealed thick propolis (from tree resin) stretching apart like taffy.
