Happy Chinese New Year and Week 10 of the Winter CSA!

We hope you have enjoyed these past 10 weeks of local, organic produce. The (sold out) Spring season begins next week. If you missed signing up for Spring, we still have Summer CSA shares available.

It is our pleasure to share this week’s rainbow of delectable produce. We have purchased some additional USDA certified organic root crops from our friends at Even’ Star Farms in Lexington Park, MD, who grew the ‘China Rose’ radishes in your share. Your mushrooms were grown by Mother Earth Mushroom Farm in Landenberg, PA. Everything else was grown by us in the greenhouse or garden. This time of year it helps to be part of a vibrant local food shed, when the weather can not always be relied on to provide enough sunshine and warmth for our veggies!

That being said, we are very excited that the weather is looking milder in the coming weeks. It means we can rely less on auxiliary heat in the greenhouses, and vegetable regeneration will be more vigorous. Sunshine is an amazing resource! We plan to soak it up in the coming days, and hope you find some time to do the same. Thank you for being part of our community supported agriculture!

CSA Winter 2019 Week 9

Clockwise, from upper left: ‘Southern Cross’ kale, lettuce, joi choi, cherry belle radishes, purple top turnips, carrots, sweet potatoes, daikon radish (large share pictured).

Use first (will keep about a week): lettuce, radish greens
Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): joi choi, kale
Store very well (a month or more): turnips, carrots, radishes, sweet potatoes

While your produce is super fresh, it has not been washed! Please take care to always wash your vegetables well before enjoying.

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!

CSA Winter 2019 Week 8


Clockwise, from upper left: Buttercrunch lettuce, hakurei turnips, kohl rabi, joi choi, sweet potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, daikon radish, curly kale (large share pictured).

Use first (will keep about a week): lettuce, mushrooms
Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): joi choi, kale
Store very well (a month or more): turnips, kohl rabi, carrots, radishes, sweet potatoes

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 Winter CSA! With just ten weeks in this season, we are more than halfway through. Have you purchased your spring share yet? CSA purchases this time of year are immensely helpful in preparing for spring. Pre-season can be one of the most expensive times for farmers who need to purchase seed, fertilizer, and supplies for the upcoming season — in spite of winter cash flow being a fraction of what it is in the high season. In fact, this friction is what lead to the birth of the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) model! Sign up here.

Your support is greatly appreciated, year round!
