2019 CSA Week 8 Recipes

Last week our tomatoes really started to ripen, which has been very satisfying for us after staring at green fruit everyday for the past month. In the share this week we included some delicious heirloom tomatoes which have incredible flavor. We also included two delicata squash which, as the name suggests, have a delicate rind which softens when cooked and is therefore quite tasty. A few of our winter squash varieties have already matured so we will be including those over the next few weeks and months. Thank you for supporting our farm and have a great week!

2019 CSA Week 7 Recipes

This week puts us one quarter through our 2019 CSA program. Things are looking quite green and our tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant are really starting to produce for us. We still have to wait until the plants give us more than a slow trickle of fruit before we can include all of our variety in the shares. This week’s share includes basil and mint, which don’t tolerate cold well, so leave the herb bag outside of the fridge. Have a great week!

2019 CSA Week 6 Recipes

It’s definitely feeling like summer now! We’ve had so much rain the past few weeks we almost forgot how to irrigate, and the past few days we’ve had to dust off our irrigation valves to pump some precious water to our crops. This week our crew transplanted a few hundred trays and we’ve been busy seeding several hundred more trays of succession crops. We’ve put together a great share this week including braising brassica greens which is a mix of curly kale, collard greens, and kohlrabi greens. The greens are delicious slow cooked, such as in the recipe below, in a soup or stew, or finely chopped in a salad with a creamy dressing. We hope you enjoy this week’s share 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.
