2019 CSA Week 14 Recipes

We’ve reached the halfway point! Thank you for participating in the first half of our CSA program, and we look forward to provide you with fresh, seasonal vegetables for the next few months. This week we included Thai hot chili peppers, which are small but firey- 23 times hotter than a jalapeno, so use sparingly.  We also included the cheery patty pan squash, which is delicious grilled, roasted, or sauteed. The green onion is a Japanese bunching onion which is a perennial harvested as a cut-and-come-again crop, and is delicious both raw and cooked. Let us know how you use your veggies and tag us @Front9farm!

Lots of great summer veggies in the bag this week. The weather is beautiful and as we enjoy this wonderful summer bounty we are thinking and preparing for fall and winter. The bags are filled with lots of great tomatoes and squash with more great stuff to come.

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.
