Before we get to the goods, we have a few announcements:
Thank you thank you thank you!
Thanks to all the members who have donated supplies we included on the 2014 Wish List. Your donation of these items helps the farm run smoothly and keep our costs low, so thank you! If there are items on the list that you're able to donate, we welcome them.
Using Instagram? #ClagettFarm
Last week, we included a call for you to email us your photos of Clagett produce or visits to the farm (the photo at the top of today's post was emailed in, from CSA member Jennifer).
Another way you can share photos with us is by posting them on Instagram (we figure quite a few of you are likely already using the app) with the hashtag #clagettfarm.
What's in this week's share?
Here's what you can expect this week:
- 1 pint strawberries
- 1 seedling (you can take 2 if you didn't pick up last week)
- 3/4 pound total combination garlic scapes + turnips+ radishes
- 1/2 pound greens (lettuce, spicy mix, arugula, kale and collards)
How Do You Use Garlic Scapes?
Don't miss out on garlic scapes! They don't last long and they make a great pesto, work well in stir-fries, and they freeze well. Check out garlic scape recipes from previous years here. And if you have great suggestions for how to use them, please share them by emailing or leaving a comment on the blog.
What's on U-Pick:
New: Strawberries. There are a lot of nice strawberries, but they are less sweet after yesterday's rain. Here's when you can pick strawberries. Check the board for full details:
- Now through end of the day Thursday.
- Saturday afternoon after 1PM through end of the day on Monday.
Herbs: anise, hissop, mint, marjoram, chamomile, sorrel, sage, garlic chives, onion chives that are bloooming, thyme, cilantro, savory, lavendar and nigella flowers.
What's coming up in the share:
We'll continue to have strawberries and garlic scapes next week. Radishes will phase out. More turnips, collards, kale and spicy mix will be here next week, but it may be the last week for spicy mix and arugula. Swiss chard should appear in the share next week, along with zucchini. Carrots are coming soon as well.
