I don’t know if you guys have noticed, but it has been hot! We are excited to get through this heatwave and into some cooler weather. We have been working early mornings and late evenings to deal with the heat of the day. We have also kept our irrigation going almost nonstop. We’ve been doing a lot of transplanting, and will have more great crops going into fall. All the produce is still looking good and we have another great bag for you this week. We included a large butternut squash this week. This squash is very versatile and can be used in both savory and sweet applications. Have a great week and thank you for supporting our farm!
We’re in the hot sticky days of summer, though it is slightly cooler than last week. We’re also in our busiest weeks of the year, where we’re both doing the most harvesting of the year, and the most transplanting, all within the weeks of August and early September. We’re also working with a lean crew these days since 3/4 of our workers are in high school, but we’re getting through it! The bags are packed this week with a great variety of produce. The stuffed acorn squash recipe below is very sweet and savory, and the baba ghanoush is very tasty with pita chips, on sandwiches, or with pasta and sauteed vegetables. Let us know what dishes you cook with the produce. Have a great week!
We are at the halfway point! Thank you to everyone that has been a member of our CSA for the past 14 weeks! We couldn’t do this without you. Cherish the flavors of summer while they last, because it always goes by too fast. We included a tasty assortment of tomatoes in the bag again this week, with a lot of the sweet/fruity varieties we grow. The spaghetti squash we included in the bag is actually very versatile, and can be used in a sweet or savory dish. We enjoy cooking it with black beans and Mexican spices to make a burritio-like bowl. Let us know what you cook. Have a great week!
