2020 CSA Week 7 Recipes

We are excited to say that the first fruits of summer are finaly here. All the work we have put in on these plants is starting to pay off. We hope you guys enjoy cooking with some new ingredients this week. we cant wait to see what everyone does with their shares. we recommend eating the peas as soon as possible since the lose their sweetness overtime. They would be great in a dish but taste great eaten raw as a snack. 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 three different kinds this week. Thank you all for supporting us and our farm!

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!
