2020 CSA Week 6 Recipes

We had a great week here on the farm. We almost have all of our garden space planted out, and plants are starting to produce. The whole Front 9 Farm crew has been working hard to put the next succession of vegetables in the ground. We harvested the first of our zucchini this week and included it in the share. We also included basil again this week. Be sure to store it on your countertop- not in your fridge, and loosely tie the bag closed so it doesn’t wilt. The recipes are getting even better now that our summer crops are starting to produce. If you haven’t done so already, check them out on our website. Also, if you’re ever missing an item from your share, please let us know and we will replace it. We’re pretty accurate, but sometimes we make mistakes packing. Have a great week!

We kept everything watered and growing nicely through the heat. The kids that work for us wilted more than the crops this week. We are grateful to have them help us move the needle on production even through a very hot spring. We are on the cusp with so many crops, waiting for them to size up or ripen just a bit further. We wish we could coax fruit out of the many of the crops we’ve been caring for since January, but it takes time. We hope you enjoy the variety this week, and make sure you eat the greens of all the crops as well as the roots/bulbs. They’re delicious in their own right. We included some beautiful heads of bibb lettuce, which are really versatile, and are delicious in everything from sandwiches to soup (yes, check out the recipe online!). Thank you for supporting our farm!

2020 CSA Week 4 Recipes

Every year is unique and unlike last years record rainfall, this year we’re feeling some high temps early in the season. We’re still transplanting every day. If you can’t tell our lettuce crops are doing amazing. There is a hefty bag of salad mix this week which is loaded with lots of spring greens including spinach. Carrots are just starting to size up so we included a small bunch this week, with much more on the way in the future. The chimichurri recipe below and on the website is a great way to use the carrot tops so nothing goes to waste. The 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!
