CSA Fall 2018 Week 8

In the box this week (from upper left corner, clockwise): Swiss chard, mixed mushrooms, cilantro, spigariello, lettuce, ‘White Satin’ carrots, sweet peppers, hakurei turnips, kohl rabi, napa cabbage, cippolini onions (large share pictured).

Use first (will keep about a week): mushrooms, lettuce
Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): chard, cilantro, spigariello, peppers, carrot tops
Store very well (a month or more): onions, kohl rabi, carrots, turnips
While your produce is super fresh, it has not been washed! Please take care to always wash your vegetables well before enjoying.

Week 8 of the Fall CSA is here, and we think this is a pretty stellar share.
If spigariello is an unfamilar face, we hope you enjoy your acquaintance. Considered a forerunner to broccoli rabe, spigariello is an italian leaf broccoli. It plays well with pine nuts, garlic, sharp cheeses, bacon, anchovies, & peppers; to name a few.

We would like to remind you about the CSA early bird discount presently available, which applies to the upcoming winter season (beginning 12/5). Purchase any share for the 2019 CSA before 12/31/18 and receive a 10% discount!

In light of the holiday next week, we will be harvesting and packing your boxes Monday morning. They will be available for pickup at the farm anytime after 12pm on Monday. Our Wednesday delivery schedule to Chestertown, Elkton, & Newark will remain the same. If you pick your share up on Kent Island, we will be there Tuesday from 3:30-6:30 for the Thanksgiving market. The garden center will be closed Thursday-Sunday for the holiday (11/22-11/25), so if you pick up your share in Cecilton, be sure to come prior. Feel free to call us if you have any questions.

Have a great week and enjoy the veggies!

Fall CSA 2018 Week 7

In the box this week (from upper left corner, clockwise): Butternut squash, sweet potatoes, joi choi, red leaf & romaine lettuces, tatsoi, sweet peppers, spicy salad mix, mustard greens, assorted mushrooms, cilantro, dragon radish (large share pictured).

Use first (will keep about a week): spicy mix, cilantro, mushrooms, red leaf lettuce
Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): romaine, tatsoi, mustard greens, peppers, joi choi
Store very well (a month or more): radishes, squash, sweet potatoes

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

All aboard for an array autumnal abundance! We hope you enjoy this week’s selections. While we don’t grow sweet potatoes, mushrooms, and butternut squash ourselves, some of our favorite local (and USDA certified organic) growers do! Your sweet potatoes and squash are from Land’s End Farm in Chestertown and, as usual, the mushrooms are from Mother Earth in Landenberg, PA. You will find a mix of shiitake and baby bella (AKA crimini) mushrooms in your share. Sweet potatoes and butternut squash prefer to be stored between 55-60 degrees Fahrenheit, so look for them in addition to your box. If you pick up at the garden center, they will be in the farmstand. At other CSA pickup locations, we will stash them nearby.

Happy eating!

CSA Fall 2018 Week 6

In the box this week (from upper left corner, clockwise): Curly kale, dragon radish, cilantro, yellow onions, spicy salad mix, joi choi, assorted hot peppers, hakurei turnips, kohl rabi; not shown here – white button mushrooms (large share pictured).

Use first (will keep about a week): spicy mix, cilantro, mushrooms
Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): kale, peppers, joi choi
Store very well (a month or more): turnips, radishes, onions, kohl rabi

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

Kohl rabi has arrived! The translation of this versatile veg means cabbage root, and it is delicious raw, pickled, grilled, steamed, sautéed, grated, you name it! Try the leaves, too! They are tender and mild. We prefer to peel our kohl rabi bulbs, then they can be used however you’d like.

Watch out for those spicy peppers! The largest are poblano, and they are the mildest. The small peppers are SUPER hot. Peach ghost, habanero, bishops crown, atomic starfish; to name a few of the spicy varieties that may be in your share. We like to make our own hot sauce to keep us warm through the winter with these dangerous beauties.

Enjoy with caution!
