Fresh from the farm Corn, Okra, and Tomato Saute

This is one of the first recipes from my box of organic veggies from Delvin Farms, a local CSA. They sell boxes of freshly harvested vegetables at a local farmers market for $35. Whatever was harvested that week , is what will be in your box so you never know for sure what you’re going to get.  I’ve debating on buying veggies from them for two summers but I was always worried that the majority of it would go to waste. There’s something sacraligous about wasting food to me. I gathered up my courage and my $35 dollars and took the plunge. I love the idea of buying vegetables directly from a local farmer right down the street. The box was full of beautiful tomatoes, squash, blackberries, cucumbers, basil, corn on the cob, and lots more. $35 was a great deal for farm fresh organic veggies.  I can’t wait to buy another box.
