Happy Week 2 of the Spring CSA!

We’ve packed some of our most delicious produce in your shares this week. Looks like it is possible to eat a rainbow and support your local farmer while doing it!

Did you know? Large CSA shares are roughly half a bushel of vegetables. Small CSA shares are half the size of large, roughly a quarter bushel of vegetables. If you are a small shareholder and wondering why your box doesn’t look chock full, the boxes we use for small shares are a different model of a half bushel box. We tried using quarter bushel boxes at one point and it was impossible to fit some of our finer, leggy, green friends inside — the boxes were too short. SO, your small CSA share will often look about half full, which means you are getting exactly what you signed up for!

In other news, we were out in the garden yesterday, fertilizing and mulching our young garlic plants that have already poked their little heads above the soil! While the weather may be a bit frightful today, spring is steadily marching nearer — we can certainly see small indicators that winter’s grip is weakening. We are busy cleaning the greenhouses and sowing away, lots of baby vegetable transplants for later in the season! If you haven’t been to the farm lately, stop by for a visit! Its always fun to see the transformation each season brings.

CSA Spring 2019 Week 1

Clockwise, from upper left: Curly kale ‘Casper’, baby lettuce, rainbow carrots, sweet potatoes, lemongrass, ‘China Rose’ radish, Priapi Garden Tomato Sauce, crimini mushrooms (large share pictured).Use first (will keep about a week): lettuce

Store very well (a month or more): radishes*, carrots, sweet potatoes*, lemongrass, sauce!
*certified organic items, purchased from other local farms (Mother Earth Mushrooms, Even’ Star Farm, Lands End Farm, Chestertown, MD)*

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

Welcome to Week 1 of the Spring CSA!

Whether you have been a year-round CSA member for years, or it is your very first time joining us, thank you for supporting our delicious work!

We have a CSA ‘first’ this week and it can be found in that beautiful jar of tomato sauce in your share! For the past 2 summers we have partnered with Amber Smucker of Mother Smucker Salsa in Rock Hall (https://www.mothersmuckersalsa.com/) to preserve some of summer’s bounty in sauce form. This marinara is made with our organic tomatoes, onions, garlic, herbs, and is sealed to last until your are ready for it (prior to opening, refrigeration is not necessary). Each jar takes about five pounds of tomatoes to make, and is a reminder of the pragmatic function that canning has traditionally served in our not-too-distant past…namely, giving us something to eat when winter crops are scarce! While the bulk of our leafy greens play catch up in the greenhouse (with longer days of sunshine they’ll be along shortly), we hope these hearty root crops, aromatic delights, and mushrooms help keep your senses (and stomachs) delighted.

In other news, the high tunnel has been sown and planted for spring, and we continue to replant beds as fast as they are vacated in the slightly warmer climate of House 1. The ‘baby lettuce’ in your share this week would technically reach full size if we had the time to let it, to give you an idea of the stressful waiting game that winter farming can entail! We will get as many greens to you as soon as possible, but yield, weather, and time are intrinsically related. Our spring onions sets are up and very adorable, along with a boat load of other leafy friends that will be planted in the garden before we know it.

CSA Winter 2019 Week 10

Clockwise, from upper left: Lettuce, ‘White Satin’ carrots, swiss chard, 2nd head of lettuce (large share only), watermelon radishes, mixed organic mushrooms, ‘Red Russian’ kale, ‘China Rose’ radish, joi choi (large share pictured).

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

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

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!
