2021 CSA Week 4 Recipes

We’re appreciating the recent rainfall, and continuing to transplant and direct seed hundreds of bed feet each week. Things are really starting to look lush. If you can’t tell our lettuce crops are thriving this spring. We have nearly 1/3rd acre of winter and summer squash transplanted, and we’re starting to see flowers which means we’re within weeks of having summer squash, and within 2 months of having winter squash. Our other summer crops are just around the corner, and day by day we’ve been watching the summer fruits and vegetables size up. Enjoy the spring veggies while they last and have a great week!
