CSA - Week 7

Summer harvest season is in full swing now!  While there is always plenty of weeding to do, the bulk of our hours this week are being spent on picking, washing, cooling, and packing. Our newest batch of chicks arrived yesterday afternoon and have settled right in to their new homes.  You can check out a short video of the chicks that Kate posted on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/kate.decker.3726/videos/1901243843434188/

This week's share contents:

  • Lettuce Mix
  • Cucumber
  • Red Kale
  • Arugula
  • Jalapeno Pepper
  • Zucchini/Summer Squash
  • Red Potatoes
  • Sweet Corn
  • Tomato
  • Beans
  • Blackberries
  • Basil
  • Dill

If you haven't enjoyed Red Kale or Arugula before, check out the recipe page for some ideas. Arugula is one of my favorite greens and I was starting to think we were not going to have any this year.  The first two plantings got washed out by the June rains and the 3rd planting (in this week's share) is a bit "holy" thanks to flea beetles.  It has a very distinctive peppery aroma and flavor.  It's a nice addition to a salad or in Arugula Pasta
