Spring CSA 2018 Week 1

Clockwise, from upper left corner: red leaf lettuce, butter lettuce, carrots, joi choi, garlic, kohl rabi, black radishes, white sweet potatoes (large share pictured).

Use first (will keep about a week in the fridge): red leaf lettuce
Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): butter lettuce, joi choi (bok choy), sweet potatoes
Store very well (a month or more): carrots, garlic, radish, kohl rabi

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

Happy Spring CSA! We know we are a bit ahead of the actual season, but spring really does come early here at the garden center.

In your box this week you will find a nice array of kitchen companions. Garlic and sweet potatoes will be happiest stored around 55º, everyone else should be sealed in the refrigerator. This particular variety of sweet potato is a white-fleshed eastern shore heirloom called Hayman, so do not be alarmed when it looks and tastes different from what you are accustomed to! Juxtaposed with you sweet white potatoes, we have the spicy black spanish radish. Though it’s skin is a bit rough, it is not necessary to peel this radish before enjoying. It is spicier than your average radish, so if you are looking for a way to temper its flavor, try roasting it! Radishes roast beautifully on their own, or these would be great roasted with some of your carrots, garlic, or sweet potato!

To peel or not to peel? That is always a hot topic around here. You will be much better off enjoying your kohl rabi if you peel the bulb, however, we recommend skipping peeling your carrots. When carrots are dug and sit around for a long time, they dry out and form a ‘skin’. Every bit of a freshly dug carrot (like those in your share) is tender, juicy, crunchy, and sweet. Even those sweet potatoes have tender skin. Geez, are we making anyone else hungry?

Baby spring greens loving milder temperatures in our high tunnel!


If this is your first CSA experience, congratulations! There are so many ‘weird’ vegetables in this box!!! You will have an outrageous obscure vegetable recipe arsenal in no time. We grow things that are different because a) they are delicious b) they are beautiful c) all vegetables are worth growing! Kohl rabi has our nomination as the poster child of scary, weird, CSA vegetables. And guess what? It is one of the most versatile veggies out there! Translated, kohl rabi means ‘cabbage root’ and is sort of like if a cabbage and a potato had a baby together. Once peeled, your kohl rabi is sweet and crunchy; great raw in salads, or with hummus and a cheese plate. It pickles beautifully, can be steamed and mashed like potatoes, makes a great addition to soups, can be grated for coleslaw or fritters; the possibilities are practically endless! Google ‘kohl rabi recipes’ and our dear friend, The Internet, will hit you back with about 491,000 ideas. So get in the kitchen and start having some fun! And good on you for supporting your local farmer, and honoring weird vegetables in the process!

Happy Wednesday, CSA family! “Lettuce” present this fabulous share for your enjoyment! Week 9 of 10 brings lots of beautiful greenhouse lettuce — we’ve included some of each variety that we grow. We have just one little bed of swiss chard, so we hope you enjoy this blue moon rainbow treat. Your collard greens are more tender than you will ever find at the store — which opens up a host of options with them in the kitchen (here’s looking at you, Collard Green Enchiladas). We are down to our last crate of watermelon radishes, but the good news is, these fuschia beauties will store for a few more months sealed in your refrigerator, so you can stretch out the joy. You can find everything you’ve ever wanted to know about this sassy little radish here. Rainbow carrots will also keep for quite some time sealed in the fridge, however there are more of those to come, so eat up! And don’t forget to sneak a peek at tonight’s super blue moon!

Happy and healthy,
Vic, Mary, Bethany & The Team at Priapi Gardens
