2022 CSA Week 11 Recipes

We have lots of great ingredients for you you to cook with this week. The fresh tabouli is perfect for these hot summer days.   Our days have been busy transplanting our fall and winter crops. We added 12 more 5’ by 80’ beds to our growing area. We have been busy filling these in with fall and winter crops, as well as more strawberry beds. One of our goals this year was to include more peas, beans, and sweet corn in the shares, and we’re pleased we’ve nearly reached our goal. This was the last picking of our beans until our fall succession is ready to harvest, and we have a large crop of sweet corn nearly ready for harvest. Barring an apocalyptic raccoon raid, we should have sweet corn included in the share in the next week or two. Enjoy the fresh produce in this week’s share. Have a great week!

2022 CSA Week 10 Recipes

The produce is really coming in now. We are happy to include peas and beans again this week. Some more of the tomato varieties are starting to ripen. We have a great fresh salsa recipe on the website for you. I know that most of you know this but it is best to store tomatoes on the counter top, not in the fridge, unless you aren’t going to eat them for a very long time. Store them in a bowl if they are ripe, or in a closed paper bag if you need them to ripen faster. We have some delicious summer spinach in the bag this week, which is great either sauteed or in a salad. Spinach is difficult to grow in hot dry weather (it thrives in cold weather) so we’re pleased we were able to take a cutting before everything bolted. Thank you for supporting us, we will see you next week!

2022 CSA Week 9 Recipes
It finally rained at the farm this week. We have been irrigating from sun up to sun down through the dry days. All of the irragation we set up in our early years is paying off big time. We are happy that we are able to include a small amount of snow/snap peas this week. We had to replant the peas three times because voles were eating entire rows. This last planting finally took, and hopefully there will be more in the future. Voles need to eat too. There is lots of activity at the farm these days. We are trying to get everything planted for fall and winter before most of our employees go back to school/college at the beginning of August. If anyone knows any high schoolers nearby looking for a job send them our way. Dont forget to tag us on social media if you post anything from the share. Thank you for supporting us. See you next week.
