Lots of Color

I haven't had much communication with Andy and Lizzie this week.  They have been extremely busy trying to get the irrigation pump up and running.  It is really giving them trouble. And with the weather being so dry, it really needs to be working. Andy has been working on it all day and thinks that he might be able to get it running soon.

I am so impressed that Andy has stories to go along with some of the vegetable.  This week in our CSA boxes we got several different types of tomatoes.  The large pink ones are an heirloom variety that has been handed down to them for many generations.  He doesn't know the name and that is really unusual.  The long skinny one is an Italian heirloom.  The more orange-red ones are called Mountain Fresh and they contain more acid.  My Mom could not eat these because she would end up with a big fever blister.  I really don't care what the name...I am always hoping we get some because I know that they will be delicious!

corn, beets, garlic, onions, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, garlic and two really skinny egg plants (I think), green, yellow and purple 'green' beans

We were excited to find our canned share was pizza sauce.  We are looking forward to dinner on Friday when we will be making homemade pizza....with bacon and pineapple.
