Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Member News
Farm Members, please refer to your pickup schedules. In this week's share:
Tomatoes!!! - A bag of super sweet orange cherry tomatoes - first of the season! The cool spring & early summer have really pushed the tomato harvest late this year, but we're starting to see them trickle in, starting with the cherry tomatoes.
Garlic - First of the season! Just harvested this week, this garlic will still be super crunchy and won't yet have the full papery outer skin.
Cabbage - Our "Savoy" variety of cabbage is finally ready. The cabbage didn't fare well this spring, but it's finally here!
Green Beans - The green beans are back, you'll each receive a nice big bag full. like summer veggies!
Hot Peppers - a bag featuring 2 types: chili (mild/medium) and jalapeno (hot). Great raw, grilled, etc
Sweet Peppers - You'll each receive 4 sweet peppers - both green and yellow! Super fresh & crunchy. Great raw or cooked.
Cucumbers - several in each of your shares! 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!
Zucchini / Summer Squash - 4 varieties in your shares, with 2-3 of each variety, it's peak summer squash season, so it's a huge bag! Patty Pan (shaped like a round flower), 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! :)
