2020 CSA Week 27 Recipes

We have another great week of produce for you as we start to wind down the season. We only have one more week to go in the 2020 CSA. We were able to include small amount of a variety of crops that squeezed a final bit of production out for us in the last month. We were able to included cherry tomatoes one last time this week, as well as some tasty green tomatoes, which make an excellent chili. The past few weeks we’ve been busy transitioning our high tunnels into winter & spring production which we hope will last into the first few weeks of our 2021 CSA program. Each year we improve our techniques and our handle on production so we’re able to extend our season in both the spring and fall. We hope you enjoy the vegetables this week!

2020 CSA Week 26 Recipes

The sunshine helped keep us motivated to get a lot done around the farm this week. We hope you all got to get out and enjoy the nice weather as well. We know this is Ohio and we will not be fooled by this nice weather- we’re ready for it to snow at any minute. We have been waiting on the leeks to size up and included them in the share this week. If you are not familiar with leeks you can think about them as a mild onion. They are incredibly versitile and can be used in many ways. We like to use them in the base of a soup which is how we used them in the recipe this week. We hope you all are still cooking along with us. Don’t forget to share your creations with us @front9farm. Only two more weeks to go!

2020 CSA Week 25 Recipes

We have lots of great ingredients for the soup weather coming up this week. We have two great soup recipes on the blog this week- a hearty chicken & rice, and a butternut squash soup.  We’ve been hustling this week to cover our plants which can survive the hard frost (28F) we’re expecting this weekend. Many cold-tolerant crops only need protection from the dry cold air dessicating them. The upside of the cold weather is that the greens become sweeter after a few frosts as they increase their sugar storage in their leaves to help them survive the cold, and pest pressure is reduced. We have lots of great produce planned for the last three bags of the season!
