2021 CSA Week 28 Recipes
We’ve made it to the end of our 2021 CSA season! We’ve strived to grow the best produce we are capable of, and we can honestly say that we put our all into this 2021 season. We’ve improved year over year, as many of our returning members have witnessed, and we hope you’ve created many delicious meals with the help of our produce throughout this season. We included the last of our tomatoes in the share this week. Our blog has 2 really tasty recipes which use green tomatoes. Any additional green tomatoes can be left in a paper bag to ripen (breathing their own gases will help them ripen). The larger ones have the most potential, though it may take a few weeks. The celery greens can also be dehydrated in either the oven on low or in a dehydrator, then stored in a jar for winter use, and the same goes for the carrot greens, which will be a nice green addition to soups and stews in the depths of winter. Thank you for sticking with us through spring, summer, and fall. We wish you all a wonderful holiday season! Thank you for supporting our farm!

2021 CSA Week 27 Recipes
This week we’ve been busy transplanting and direct seeding many root crops, onions, and garlic, which, if you can believe it, will be ready in time for our 2022 CSA season in late April/early May. We’re adding low tunnels to carry the crops through winter, after which their growth will pick up through spring. This week we included a mix of root vegetables in the share If you keep them in a bag in your fridge, they should last a few weeks or longer, though they’ll have the best flavor the sooner you eat them. Since we don’t spray any pesticides their skin has some damage from ground-dwelling insects, but it peels easily and the interior has great texture and flavor. Last week’s frost has made them sweeter, and we really enjoyed them in this week’s root mash, and in the pancake recipe below. The frost also improved the flavor of our leafy greens, so the kale and escarole are very tasty this time of year. We hope you enjoy the second to last share!

2021 CSA Week 26 Recipes
it’s officially frosted, and we’ve had a few nights in the mid-20s, so we’ve had a pretty distinct season change as all our warm weather crops have been killed off, and our cool season plants have shrugged off the cold, and many appreciate the reduction in pest and disease pressure that comes with cold weather. Root crops become sweeter after a frost, so we’ve included the last beets of the season. Their greens are in great shape so be sure to use those as well. If you’ve cooked beets every which way and are at a loss as to what to do with them, we recommend trying the black bean and beet burger recipe on our blog this week. It’s pretty tasty! We included a delicious white chicken chili recipe which makes great use of the mix of peppers included in the bag this week. We hope you have a great week!
