2020 CSA Week 8 Recipes

There’s a lot of activity at the farm these days with so much to harvest. We have just 4 more beds of squash and onions to plant before we start prepping beds for fall and winter planting. We have lots of variety and everything is sizing up nicely. They should start making it into the bags within the next couple of weeks. Our zucchini got a little away from us this week so they are a little bigger than the size we usually pick. This just makes for a bigger meal. The website has a delicious sauteed red lettuce recipe, a dish which symbolizes wealth and prosperity in Chinese culture. it’s a great use of the greens which are more bitter than bibb lettuce, especially this time of year, but have a much higher nutritional value. All of the meals this week are nice and light and use very minimal additional ingredients. We figured this was best after a long weekend of brats and beer. Happy 4th of july!

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!
