Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Member News

Farm Members, please refer to your pickup schedules.  In this week's share:
  • Hot Peppers - a small bag featuring 2 types: chili (mild/medium) and jalapeno (hot).  Great raw, grilled, etc
  • Sweet Peppers - First small harvest - you'll find either a green or a yellow pepper in your share.  
  • Cucumbers - several! Fresh, crunchy, and thin-skinned.  Awesome!  Cucumbers are delicious - sliced onto salads, sandwiches, or in a salad all their own... such as my favorite - a vinegar & sour cream sauce cucumber salad!
  • Broccoli -  Great raw, steamed, roasted... you name it!  We all know how good broccoli is for us.  
  • Zucchini / Summer Squash - 2 to 3 varieties in your shares!  A nice big bag with several summer squash:   Middle Eastern Zucchini (my favorite) has a light-green skin, creamy texture, and mild flavor. Yellow crookneck has a beautiful color!  And regular green zucchini is a staple!  Zucchini is delicious cooked, but it can also be eaten raw on salads & with dips!
  • Basil - YUM! There is nothing like fresh basil.  So delicious used fresh & raw on sandwiches, salads, pizza, pesto, you name it!
  • Swiss Chard - Super delicious chopped finely on a raw salad, or lightly sauteed. Deer love this crop, but it's super delicious and healthy for humans, too!  :)
  • Kale - Super delicious in a kale soup or kale salad, or try a recipe for kale chips!  This leafy green vegetable is super healthy.
  • Garlic Scapes - A gourmet treat! The fresh top of the garlic plant. Use as you would fresh onion or garlic.  This is probably the last of the garlic scapes for the season!
Our recipe database contains cooking ideas for all the vegetables we grow - link here.
