2020 CSA Week 5 Recipes

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!

2020 CSA Week 3 Recipes

We survived the heat wave earlier this week, which the summer crops loved, and they should be producing fruit soon after soaking up all this sunshine. We planted tomatoes and peppers very early and usually end up cutting off the first fruit before it fully matures to allow the plants to grow bigger and produce more peppers in the long term, which is why the pepper in your bag is so petite. Soon the tomatoes and peppers will be producing lots of fruit and you will recieve larger quantities in the share. Spring is the best season for greens, so we included a full half pound of salad mix in the share this week. Us and our wonderful crew have been hard at work putting many many trays of everything from summer squash, to winter squash, to onions, and beans, in the ground, which will be ready for harvest during peak summer. We hope you’ve been enjoying the spring vegetables, and we thank you for supporting our farm!
