Winter CSA 2017 Week 6

Clockwise, from upper left corner: Tatsoi, ‘Hayman’ white sweet potatoes, romaine, buttercrunch, Brussels sprouts, rutabaga, joi choi, garlic!
Use first (will keep about a week in the fridge):
tatsoi, butter lettuce
Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): joi choi, romaine
Store very well (a month or more):brussels sprouts, rutabaga, sweet potatoes, garlic

While your produce is super fresh, it has not been washed! Please take care to wash your vegetables well before enjoying. Stay tuned for a video of our favorite washing methods coming soon!

Week 6 of your winter CSA features more luscious greens from House 1, the sweetest Brussels sprouts of the season, and some equally sweet roots to smile about, while the weather outside is wild!

If you haven’t yet tried ‘Hayman’ sweet potatoes, you are in for a treat! This tuber made its way to the eastern shore of the Chesapeake in the late 1800s, and is now considered an eastern shore heirloom variety. It’s hard to grow, hard to come by, but easy to eat! On a most practical note, we enjoy these tasty tubers steamed and mashed with the skins on!

Winter CSA 2017 Week 5

Clockwise, from upper left corner: Red leaf lettuce, black radish, purple top turnips, collard greens, watermelon radish, kohl rabi, daikon radish, joi choi.

Happy New Year! We welcome 2018 with a ravishing rainbow of roots and greens!

Winter CSA 2017 Week 4

Clockwise, from upper left corner: Asian pears, dragon radish, mixed mushrooms, rutabaga, rainbow carrots, butter lettuce, romaine lettuce, daikon radish, white sweet potatoes, joi choi (large share pictured, holiday decor not included).

Use first (will keep about a week in the fridge):
mushrooms, lettuce
Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): joi choi
Store very well (a month or more):carrots, rutabaga, radishes, sweet potatoes, pears

We hope you are enjoying the Winter CSA. The holiday has not affected our CSA schedule, so plan to pick up your boxes on this afternoon/evening, as usual. We would like to bring tonight’s extremely low temperatures to your attention, particularly if you pick your box up in Newark. If boxes are left sitting outside for more than an hour or so in freezing temperatures, they will likely freeze and your vegetables will not be happy! For prime veggies, plan to pick up your box as early as you possibly can, and get those greens into the refrigerator where they will be happiest.

Our Asian pear crop is dwindling, so we wanted to make sure they made it into your share one more time before they are all gone. Mushrooms are a rare treat — we had some overflow from our holiday markets this past weekend. You will find an assortment of crimini, shiitake, and white buttons. They are grown by Mother Earth mushrooms in Landenberg, PA, the oldest and largest USDA certified organic mushroom farm on the east coast!

Fire up your stove & oven and get cozy with your winter veggies!

Happy New Year!
