2020 CSA Week 13 Recipes

Another heavy bag of delicious summer veggies this week. This week’s share has a lot of diversity, including fresh celery, which is just starting to be large enough to harvest. The greens are really delicious, and full of flavor. We grew  single serving spaghetti squash that are in the bags which make a great two-person meal or side.We have a really strong winter squash crop this year, so we should be including a new squash nearly every other week, wihch are all unique and all have exceptional flavor. As usual, it’s been a full week of turning beds over to the next succession. We’ve done a much better job of managing weed pressure this year versus previous years, so we’re in a good position going into the fall to have some really strong fall crops. We hope you enjoy the share this week!

2020 CSA Week 12 Recipes

It feels like the weeks are flying by. We can't believe we are almost at the halfway point. The shares this week have great variety. Anytime the greens of the root crops (Beets, Carrots, etc.) are in at least OK shape we try to include them so you can cook with those as well, but when they haven’t fared well against the weather, insects (we don’t spray any insecticides), and hungry deer, we’ve been removing them more consistently. If you try the beet salsa recipe this week (on the website) we hope you find the main takeaway is that you can make delicious salsa out of nearly any vegetable. We also highly recommend the two part recipe below due to the versatility of the creamed greens, as well as the pickled stems. A quick pickle can perk up nearly any share item you aren’t sure what to do with.  Have a great week!

2020 CSA Week 11 Recipes

This week we included winter squash for the first time this year. The Delicata squash in the bag has been a favorite with many CSA members in the past. It is called Delicata because it has a delicate skin that you don’t have to peel. We coated it with honey and grilled it in the recipes this week. Also making an appearance for the first time is Asian eggplant. This was used in a delicious stir fry with the collard greens and peppers. We’ve had a busy week as we’re always thinking one season ahead- we’ve been seeding and transplanting tray after tray of fall and winter vegetables.  We hope you enjoy the share this week!
