CSA Weekly Recipes

2021 CSA Week 22 Recipes
We’re definitely feeling the season change, with the later sunrise and earlier sunset, though  we’re appreciating the recent warmer than average temperatures. This week we were still able to include summer vegetables including peppers, eggplant, and beans, though our bean crop was never very happy this year and unfortunately they are on their way out. All of our greens are looking and tasting better at this point now that the heat of summer has passed. We included some large crunchy radishes, which also have edible tops- good for stir fries or sauteeing. We were also tempted to sneak the Swiss chard into butternut squash and black bean quesadillas, which would make for a nice modification of the recipe we included on the blog this week. We hope you have a great week!

2021 CSA Week 21 Recipes

We hope everyone had a productive week like we did on the farm. We are starting to build our low tunnels over the beds which will allow us to grow through winter. Our (ambitious) plan is to cover our nearly one acre of production space in low tunnels, and to also fill our high tunnels with greens by the end of October, both of which are currently filled with tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants.  This will allow us to have a lot of variety these last 7 weeks of our csa, and throughout the winter. We included a nice quantity of okra this week, which will stop producing for us within a few weeks as the temperatures cool We highly recommend trying it roasted by first thinly slicing the okra, then roasting it until it is tender and crisp. It works well as a side to grilled chicken and/or lemony rice or couscous. We hope you all have a wonderful week!  

2021 CSA Week 20 Recipes

We’re officially into fall, and edging towards the final bit of the season when the day length, light levels, and temperatures are still enough for  plants to continue their growth, so we’re rushing to get all of our plants in the ground before they go dormant through winter. The days are getting shorter and soon enough we will be wishing the sun was a little higher in the sky. This week’s share is filled with some great ingredients.  The broccoli soup recipe was a little indulgent, but very delicious. If you are going to make the soup make sure to get a good cheddar or similar cheese that works well in creamy soups. Thank you all for your support we look forward to providing you some great produce this fall!
