2021 CSA Week 7 Recipes

Some of the first fruits of summer are finaly here! All the work we’ve put into our tomato plants is starting to pay off. We harvested the last of the spring peas, so we’ll have to wait for the cool fall weather to see those again. One of the benefits of our CSA is that we harvest everything the day of or the day before you get it, so if you keep everything cool and humid, produce items should last a week or two. This is especially true for lettuce, of which you received two different heads this week. We included some beets with beautiful greens, as well as turnips with greens, so be sure to include the plant tops in your meals as well. The wrapper leaves of the cabbage can also be slow cooked like collard greens until they become tender. Thank you all for supporting us and our farm!

Now that the skies have turned (mostly) sunny, everything is growing nicely again. With the over 5 inches of rain we’ve had in the past few weeks we‘ve had some flooding in one of our plots, which drowned our nice crop of parsley and another crop of green beans, as well as a few other herbs. Otherwise the summer crops are looking great and we hope to include tomatoes in the share next week. We grow half a dozen really flavorful varieties that we’ll be rotating through the shares for the rest of the season. Thank you for supporting our farm and have a great week!

2021 CSA Week 5 Recipes

Our peas are finally starting to produce so everyone gets a pint peas of this week.  They are just picked, so make sure you eat them as quick as possible to experience the sweetest pea possible. We have a wonderful stir fry recipe if you are looking for some inspiration. The rain is becoming too much of a good thing, and some of our plants and fields are becoming water-logged, so we’re hoping to have some dry sunny days in the future so we can get back to a more desirable moisture content in the soil with happy, perky plants. We hope you enjoy the variety this week, and thank you for supporting our farm!
