Hey CSA members! 

It's Wednesday, which means it's time to learn what's in this week's share. 

Below you'll find what's in the share, what's on u-pick and a recipe suggestion from a fellow member! 

 

What's in this week's share:

  • 1 lb combination garlic scapes + turnips
  • 1 1/2 lb combination lettuce + bok choy + kale + collards + tender greens + Swiss chard
  • 1/2 lb combination spicy mix + arugula + basil + peas
  • 1 pint strawberries or a small bunch of carrots

 

What's on U-Pick:

Strawberries. The strawberries are beginning to decline but are still available.

Greens: Swiss chard, Collards, Lettuce, Spicy Mix, Arugula, Kale, Spinach and Tender Greens. Note that the lettuces taste best when harvested in the mornings.

Herbs: parsley, sorrel, mint, lemon balm, sage, onion chives (flowering), garlic chives, lavender, chamomile, dill, stevia and thyme.  

Turnips.

Mulberries.

 

What's coming up in the share:

The first cucumbers of the season should arrive shortly, as should Napa cabbage, green onions (also referred to as scallions or bunching onions) and carrots.

Plus coming soon: zucchini, kholrabi, bunching onions, Chinese cabbage.

 

This Week's TipA Recipe Suggestion from CSA Member Cathy

Earlier this week on the blog, Cathy left us a comment about how she used some of last week's produce. Here's what Cathy had to say: 

I chopped some garlic scapes, hakurei turnips (sliced), turnip greens, collard greens, arugula. In a medium pan, I sauteed the scapes and turnips for a few minutes, then added the greens. I splashed everything with some soy sauce and rice vinegar and cooked for a few more minutes. Towards the end, I added some chickpeas and raisins, which helped to balance the meal, and a little sesame oil, for a little extra flavor.

Thank you, Cathy!

Hi Kathy - Yes, you should see peas in your share this weekend. When some items are first entering (or exiting!) the shares the for the season, there are quantities ready to harvest, but not quite enough for every member. This is why you may see some items on the board at pick-ups that are not listed in the weekly share info. The farmers work hard to make sure it all evens out over the course of a season. Enjoy the peas!

Hi! I love the fresh veggies and have been waiting for peas so was excited when they were on last week's list. But, come my Saturday pickup there were none :( What's up? Will there be some for us this Saturday?

Thanks!
