Happy Week 9 of the Winter CSA! Next week will be the last share for the Winter season, the Spring season begins 2/13/19.
It is the time of year when cold temperatures and gray skies take a toll on our production. You can review the science in the diagram below. In short, pray for sunshine!
The purple top turnips and cherry belle radishes in your share were purchased from local organic growers, Even’ Star Farm in Lexington Park and Flying Plow Farm in Rising Sun. The turnips are a bit small, but they are freshly dug and unwaxed, so we would suggest you skip peeling them all together in your preparation. Here is a new recipe a friend shared with us, too cute and yummy not to pass along Nip-Nip Soup.
Your kale was harvested from the greenhouse, it is sweet and tender for whatever you choose to do with it!
Enjoy your veggies!
