2018 CSA Week 19 Recipes
This week we included a big, delicious watermelon, which we’ve been patiently waiting for all season. They’ve taken their time getting ripe, but they were well worth the wait. We also included a sugar pumpkin, which is both cute to look at and great for cooking. On the blog this week we included a peanutbutter pumpkin soup recipe which is very tasty. We’ve still firmly in summer, and our tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant are chugging along, though a lot of our fall crops are sizing up and we look forward to the cooler temperatures bringing out their sweetness. Thank you for being a member of our CSA program, and we hope you enjoy this week’s share!

This week we included spaghetti squash, which has a unique texture similar to pasta, and a mild flavor. This squash goes great with ratatouille or other tomato-based sauces. We also included some tasty summer treats- sweet corn and cantaloupe. We included a mix of pink brandywine and old German heirloom tomatoes. The flavor of both is exceptional, but they are highly perishable so we would recommend removing them from the paper bag to slow the ripening, and eating them within a few days. We hope you enjoy this week’s share!
2018 CSA Week 17 Recipes
We’re aflush with summer’s bounty! Our roma tomatoes are really hitting their stride so we included a hefty helping this week. These are the meatiest of the tomatoes which makes them perfect for sauces, salsas, and soups. We also included the first of our sweet corn, which we hope to include a few more times this season. The corn was harvested hours before the dropoff so it’s near peak sugar content! We also included ground cherries, a sweet relative of tomatoes and tomatillos, which is another crop we will include more of from now until the end of the season. We hope you enjoy the variety this week, and thank you for supporting our farm!

Whats happening at the farm

Click the link to view our farm blog. Cassie and I will each try to write a blog post as often as we can about what we are up to on the farm. This is meant to be a lighthearted way for us to reflect on what we are doing and talk about what we are trying to do. It also lets the people that support us through our CSA and farmers market see what they are supporting. I'm almost certian that both of us will just write about the cats and dog because they are hilarious, but you will have to read to find out.
