2021 CSA Week 3 Recipes

We survived the heat wave earlier this week, which the summer crops loved, and they should be producing fruit soon after soaking up all this sunshine. Us and our wonderful crew have been hard at work putting many many trays of everything from summer squash, to winter squash, to onions, and beans, in the ground, which will be ready for harvest during peak summer. We’re starting to harvest the brassica crops we planted earlier this spring, so this week’s share includes a wide variety of flavors and textures from broccoli to Chinese cabbage. So many items in the share make incredible fresh salads, from the dill, to the leafy greens and beets. We hope you’ve been enjoying the spring vegetables, and we thank you for supporting our farm!
