CSA, Week 18

This week's share:

Not pictured: Berries. We ate all our berries before I managed to get this photo taken.

Berry Choice (straw or rasp; we chose one of each)
Green Beans
Herb Choice (we chose stevia*)
Red Onion
Summer Squash

*I was super intrigued to get stevia in this week's share. Stevia is used as a sweetener, and its leaves are indeed incredibly sweet. We had a few leaves shredded on our berries this morning. In the past, there has been controversy over the safety of stevia, but recent studies show it to be safe and possibly even beneficial to people with diabetes and hypertension.
