2021 CSA Week 8 Recipes

There’s a lot  of activity at the farm these days. This is the first week that we are including summer squash. Everyone will get either a cueball squash, green zucchini, yellow zucchini, white zucchini, or yellow squash, which should all start to yield greater quantities in the next few weeks. all of these can be used in the zucchini fritter recipe on the website. We have kohlrabi for the first time this year as well. Kohlrabi taste like a sweet cross between a broccoli and a turnip. The kohlrabi slaw recipe would be great for a fourth of July BBQ. It can also be skinned and eaten raw in a vegetable dish or roasted. We included sorrel greens this week, which are deliciously tangy and make a wonderful sauteed sauce (recipe on website) or addition to soup. All of the meals this week are nice and light and use very minimal additional ingredients.

Some of the first fruits of summer are finaly here! All the work we’ve put into our tomato plants is starting to pay off. We harvested the last of the spring peas, so we’ll have to wait for the cool fall weather to see those again. One of the benefits of our CSA is that we harvest everything the day of or the day before you get it, so if you keep everything cool and humid, produce items should last a week or two. This is especially true for lettuce, of which you received two different heads this week. We included some beets with beautiful greens, as well as turnips with greens, so be sure to include the plant tops in your meals as well. The wrapper leaves of the cabbage can also be slow cooked like collard greens until they become tender. Thank you all for supporting us and our farm!

Now that the skies have turned (mostly) sunny, everything is growing nicely again. With the over 5 inches of rain we’ve had in the past few weeks we‘ve had some flooding in one of our plots, which drowned our nice crop of parsley and another crop of green beans, as well as a few other herbs. Otherwise the summer crops are looking great and we hope to include tomatoes in the share next week. We grow half a dozen really flavorful varieties that we’ll be rotating through the shares for the rest of the season. Thank you for supporting our farm and have a great week!
