Week 3 of the Winter CSA is here and we hope you have all been enjoying your shares. The cold temperatures often make garden vegetables sweeter, and more nutritious! Win win!
With the upcoming holidays, our delivery schedule will remain the same. Boxes will be delivered at the normal times and locations Wednesday, 12/26/18, and Wednesday 1/2/19.
If this is your first experience with watermelon radishes, you are in for a treat! The sweet pink inside, and peppery outside make for a well-balanced and beautiful crunch in your favorite salads or crudites. If raw radishes are not your thing, they roast beautifully, too.
Tender baby butter lettuce is a favorite of ours for wraps and sandwiches. With all the rain this fall, our cabbage crop did not stand much of a chance, so enjoy these little babies as they will not be around for long.
Swiss chard is a green fit for kings! Containing more iron than spinach, and a veritable feast for the eyes, it would make a lovely addition to your holiday spread.
Happy holidays! We wish you good health, peace, and prosperity in the year to come. And don’t forget to buy those 2019 CSA shares by 12/31 for 10% off!
