CSA Summer 2019 Week 4

Clockwise, from upper left: Lettuce, Ethiopian highland kale, dandelion greens, joi choi, thick stem mustard greens, asparagus, carrots, red Russian kale (large share pictured).

Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): everything! Although everything is most tender when it’s fresh! Leafy greens prefer a plastic bag, or an airtight container so they don’t wilt. Speaking of tender, don’t peel those carrots! It would be a total waste of time, energy, and precious spring carrot!

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

Happy Week 4 of the Summer CSA!

Mmmmmmm so many leafy greens to try! If this is your first experience with Ethiopian highland kale we *highly* recommend you try a nibble raw first. This tender beauty has layers of flavor that beg to be incorporated into a spring salad.

One of our absolute favorite uses for mustard greens is as a substitute for mustard AND lettuce on your favorite sandwich. Seriously, try it.

Now might be a good time to start perfecting your kale pesto recipe, it is a great way to add nutrition and loads of flavor to humble pasta and potatoes. Pesto also adds a delicious pop to your favorite soup. However you enjoy your share this week we encourage you to HAVE FUN WITH YOUR FOOD! Life is short, make it beautiful!

Use first (will keep about a week): lettuce, radishes
Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): everything else! Mushrooms store best in a brown paper bag in your refrigerator. Leafy greens prefer a plastic bag, or an airtight container so they don’t wilt.

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.
