Use first (will keep about a week): snap peas (they’ll keep longer, but are best when fresh!), red leaf lettuce
Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): everything else!
While your produce is super fresh, it has not been washed! Please take care to always wash your vegetables well before enjoying. Happy Week 8 of the Summer CSA!
Hey, veggie community! We had a great morning selecting the most beautiful produce from the garden to fill your shares this week. We hope you enjoy our selections!
In other garden news, we are busy stringing and staking the field tomatoes. The cherry tomatoes in the high tunnel are juuust starting to ripen and they are wonderful! If you can believe it, we are also preparing for fall and seeding our Brussels sprouts this week. They take quite a bit of planning ahead, we won’t reap the benefits of this labor until early December — but it is always a joy!
Baby zinnias are up in the garden and we look forward to being able to harvest them for fresh cut flower arrangements all summer.
We hope you have a chance to get outside and enjoy this lovely weather. We have rounded up a few recipes inspired by this week’s share, and posted them below. Happy eating!
