Fall CSA 2017 Week 8

From top left, clockwise: Red Russian kale, kohl rabi, romaine (green and red), sweet potatoes, spinach, Napa cabbage, French breakfast radishes, rainbow Swiss chard (Large share pictured).

Some tips on an order of operations for this week’s share…

Use first (will keep about a week in the fridge): spinach – generally stores longer, but is a bit wet this week which shortens shelf life.

Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): romaine lettuce, swiss chard, kale.

Store very well (a month or more): Sweet potatoes, radishes, kohl rabi, Napa cabbage.

We have really great news! Our frost blankets did the trick through Friday and Saturday night’s freezing temperatures, and we were able to save many beautiful vegetables in the garden. Here they are all tucked in:
The kale, lettuce, cabbage, and Swiss chard in your share were all spared using this method. Hooray!

With just two weeks left of our Fall CSA, we would like to remind you about the special pricing available for the 2018 cycle. If you sign up for any or all CSA seasons (including Winter ’17/’18) before December 1st, we will take 15% off the normal share price! Lock in some healthy food for the hectic holiday season and make your personal health a priority. A CSA share would also be a great gift for your favorite foodie or health nut! This offer is not available through our website store, so please call (410)275-9438 or stop by the farm to sign up.

And Chestertown residents, don’t forget! We’ve added a CSA pickup location just for you at The Seed House! CSA shares will be available in Chestertown every Wednesday from 4-8pm, beginning with the Winter ’17/’18 season in just a few weeks!

Thank you for all of your support! We love providing healthy food for the community, but it would not be possible without YOU.

Fall CSA 2017 Week 7

From top left, clockwise: Carrots!, red leaf lettuce, fennel, joi choi, swiss chard, purple top turnips, cilantro, romaine lettuce. (Large share pictured).

A particularly swoonworthy share. We will be scrambling to harvest as much beautiful vegetable matter as we can from the garden this week before Friday night’s very frigid, 24 degree, arrival. Not everything can be saved. This is probably the last week the cilantro will be around, so savor it!

Some tips on an order of operations for this week’s share…

Use first (will keep about a week in the fridge): cilantro, joi choi, red leaf lettuce.

Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): romaine lettuce, swiss chard, carrot tops.

Store very well (a month or more): Carrots, fennel bulbs, turnips.

All veggies this week store best in a bag or sealed container in the refrigerator.

If you have never considered carrot tops as more than compost, it is time to think again! While they are as beautiful as they are early in the season, our customers will often include them in salads, or use them as a base for pesto, in juices, or stock!And, no, they are not poisonous!This recipe for Roasted Carrot and Black Bean Tacos includes carrots, their tops, and cilantro! A final word on our beautiful carrots — don’t bother peeling them! Carrots form a ‘skin’ when they are out of the ground for a long time, and begin to dry out. Freshly dug carrots are crunchy and juicy and you will want to enjoy every bit of them (just be sure to wash them well)!

Fall CSA 2017 Week 6

From top left, clockwise: mustard greens, mixed lettuce, red Russian kale, spicy mix, Hakurei turnips, New Zealand spinach, dragon radishes, onion, rainbow chard (large share pictured).

Use first (will keep about a week in the fridge): spicy mix, turnip tops, kale (lasts longer but stems will toughen).

Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): mustard greens, lettuce, NZ spinach, rainbow chard.

Store very well (a month or more): Onion, radish, turnips.

All veggies this week(but for the onion) store best in a bag or sealed container in the refrigerator. Onions like cool dark spaces, but not quite as cool and dark as the refrigerator 🙂

Yes – we are encouraging you to eat your turnip greens! They are tender and loaded with nutrients. Try them steamed or sauteed with your mustard greens for a quick and easy side dish. The Hakurei turnips themselves are great raw or cooked. If you have never tried roasting them whole before, we would highly recommend it!

Dragon radishes are not as spicy as their name suggests. However, if you don’t find them to your liking raw, they too are delicious roasted.

Rainbow chard is one of our favorite vegetables. It is loaded with iron, easy on the eyes, and pretty versatile, too. Smoothies, soups, with your eggs, the sky is the limit! Check out the recipes below for some ideas & happy Wednesday!
