Happy Week 2 of the Summer CSA!

You may have noticed the ‘Summer’ CSA sure does start out with a lot of spring greens! This week’s box is no exception. We like to think of this time of the year as nature’s way of helping us shed those extra pounds we may have gained during the long, cold, dark days of winter, when we *might* have been comforting ourselves with pasta and cheese! (We are definitely guilty of this, but, also had a great time eating cheese on the couch so, it all works out!)

Bring on the salads! These powerful leafy greens are excellent at alkalizing your body chemistry, and fill a body up without ever letting it down. Here are our favorite preparations for the greens you may be less familiar with. N.B. ‘Dandelion green’ is a colloquialism for the Italian chicory you will find in your box this week — a distant cousin of the dandelion greens popping up in your yard at the moment. Fun fact! Now is a great time to forage those, too, as long as the area you are harvesting from is not frequented by furry friends or chemical applications.

Speaking of furry friends, you may notice with the weather warming up an influx of pests in your weekly share. We try to mitigate this as much as possible, but these are the buggers that put the PEST in pesticide — they are one of the main reasons people started spraying their crops with harmful chemicals! Therefore, please regard any interlopers in your box as a testament to our organic growing practices and the undeniable deliciousness of our crops. Check out the video linked above for helpful tips on the best way to wash your leafy greens. Your understanding is always appreciated.
