It feels like the weeks are flying by. We can't believe we are almost at the halfway point. The shares this week have great variety. Anytime the greens of the root crops (Beets, Carrots, etc.) are in at least OK shape we try to include them so you can cook with those as well, but when they haven’t fared well against the weather, insects (we don’t spray any insecticides), and hungry deer, we’ve been removing them more consistently. If you try the beet salsa recipe this week (on the website) we hope you find the main takeaway is that you can make delicious salsa out of nearly any vegetable. We also highly recommend the two part recipe below due to the versatility of the creamed greens, as well as the pickled stems. A quick pickle can perk up nearly any share item you aren’t sure what to do with. Have a great week!

This week we included winter squash for the first time this year. The Delicata squash in the bag has been a favorite with many CSA members in the past. It is called Delicata because it has a delicate skin that you don’t have to peel. We coated it with honey and grilled it in the recipes this week. Also making an appearance for the first time is Asian eggplant. This was used in a delicious stir fry with the collard greens and peppers. We’ve had a busy week as we’re always thinking one season ahead- we’ve been seeding and transplanting tray after tray of fall and winter vegetables. We hope you enjoy the share this week!

The summer vegetables are in full swing, and so is the summer heat, and this year, a summer drought. We’ve only had about an inch of rain in the past month, so each day we keep wishing the rain would swing over our heads, but it keeps missing us. We use drip irrigation for nearly all of our production space, so we’re been able to keep most of our crops well irrigated, but they all look so much happier after a good soaking. The share this week has a nice variety of flavors with endless combinations, so the only limit is your creativity. We hope you enjoy the share this week and thank you for supporting our farm!
