CSA Summer 18 Week 5

Clockwise, from upper left corner: French breakfast radishes, curly kale (from Homestead Farms in Millington), cherry belle radishes, romaine lettuce, strawberries(!), hakurei turnips (from Flying Plow Farms in Rising Sun), butter lettuce, joi choi (large share pictured).

Use first (will keep one week or less): Strawberries, butter lettuce
Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): romaine lettuce, joi choi
Store very well (a month or more): curly kale, turnips, radishes

While your produce is super fresh, it has not been washed! Please take care to always wash your vegetables well before enjoying.

IMPORTANT!! Due to the wet weather, your strawberries are NOT in your box this week. They will be fresh picked in the cooler nearby, so please look for them and ask an employee for help if you need it. Large shares will get a pint, small shares a half pint. Honor system, people — please don’t steal berries from your neighbors pint because you feel you need more! Berries will be for sale in the farmstand, if you need more than your share provides.

CSA Summer 2018 Week 4

Clockwise, from upper left corner: Asparagus, hon tsai tai, spinach, lettuce, joi choi, mixed radishes, red russian kale, green garlic (large share pictured).

Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): this whole share will hold up well in cold storage, sealed in a plastic bag or container. But you’ve got another box coming next week so get cookin’!

While your produce is super fresh, it has not been washed! Please take care to always wash your vegetables well before enjoying.

If this is your first encounter with Hon Tsai Tai, you are in for a treat! A Chinese specialty crop also known as Kailaan, it has a pleasing mild mustard taste for use raw in salads or lightly cooked in stir-fries or soups. Even the flowers are edible, use them for a noteworthy garnish on any dish. Speaking of stir fry, it is a quintessential spring dinner. Fast, light, and healthy — not to mention most of the items in your box would lend themselves beautifully. Bon appetit!

What a difference a week makes! Top, the high tunnel spring crops on their last legs. Below, the high tunnel one week later freshly planted with our early tomato crop!

Enjoy your veggies!

CSA Summer 18 Week 3

Clockwise, from upper left corner: Spinach (from Flying Plow Farms in Rising Sun), fresh sage, cherry belle radishes, joi choi, green garlic, butter lettuce, chives, red russian kale (large share pictured).

Use first (will keep about a week in the fridge): spinach (or take measures to remove some of the water from it, it is quite wet!)
Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): everything else will hold up well in cold storage, sealed in a plastic bag or container.

Wednesday is here again! We hope you enjoy this box of springy goodness. While we are excited the weather finally feels like spring outside, this is the end of the line for the spring vegetable crops in our greenhouses — they do not appreciate that their oasis suddenly feels like summer! The crops that we have been scrambling to get planted in the garden are still getting their feet under them, so for the short term, veggies are a bit scarce. We have packed up the best and brightest for you this week. In one month’s time your box may be so chock full, you will be missing our slow start!

Green garlic is one of the many sensory delights of spring. If you are wondering, what the difference between garlic, green garlic, and garlic scapes is, look no further than The Kitchn’s comprehensive guide.And if you are wondering how to fix your green garlic, Alice Waters has a spaghetti dish for that!

Your fresh sage will dry beautifully for use throughout the year, or you can check out this inspiring list of 45 recipe ideas for fresh sage.

However you enjoy your share this week, we thank you for allowing us the privilege of providing food for your table. Bon appettit!
