Hello, Clagett subscribers!

We're all set for today's pick-up. Here's what you'll find in Week 15 of the CSA:

  • 1 head garlic. Word of advice, squeeze the garlic when you grab it out of the basket to make sure it’s firm.
  • 6 1/4 pounds combination tomatoes + potatoes
  • 1 3/4 pounds eggplant + beans + okra + peppers + chiles

 

On U-Pick this week:

If you want to come and u-pick, you can find a map of the fields and locations at the Wash Station when you arrive at the farm, denoting where to find the fields listed below. Here's what's on offer this week. 

  • Full-size tomatoes. We picked the fields pretty clean today, so don’t expect to find these in any great quantity, but you're welcome to take what's there. 
  • Cherry tomatoes. 
  • Ground cherries. They're sweet and in abundance. 
  • Tomatillos 
  • Chiles 
  • Celery. The celery is too tough to eat raw, but it's great for cooking. 
  • Swiss Chard. 
  • Beans are in two fields as of this week. The ones in B3 are more suitable for shell beans.
  • Okra
  • Herbs: Basil (in the high tunnel). Plus Oregano, sorrel, parsley, onion chives, coriander, dill seed, stevia, lemongrass, anise, Mexican sour cucumbers, thyme, lemon balm, sage, garlic chives. 
  • As always, any flowers are always fair game.  

A preview of what's to come:

Next week should be a lot like this week. We have some lettuce coming soon, and we’ll update you on that. For a longer term look, here are a few updates:

  • The winter squash is looking great, but the sweet potatoes are looking awful because of the dry weather and the groundhogs.
  • The fall greens and roots like radishes, turnips and carrots are looking good. Broccoli and cauliflower perished, unfortunately.
  • And cabbages are looking very good. 

 

 

Enjoy this week's share, and let us know if you have any questions about your produce or how to use it! 

Have a great week,

-- Clay
