CSA Pickup Reminder Thursday June 15th and Friday June 16th. HOT HOT HOT

Posted 6/13/2017 4:44pm by Jill Rendleman.

This heat I have come to respect!  It will knock you down without much notice!  Our main job in the prime of summer is to keep things alive.....ourselves, our pets, and the chickens included.  Warm season crops, peppers, tomatoes, cucs, eggplant, basil.......etc, seem to love it as long as there is water.  The greens not so much.  Blueberries maaaybe this week.  The chickens are not happy.  Today I brought them house fans and ice in a dog bowl and after looking at it for about 8 minutes, they all gathered round to enjoy.  

Members should expect tomatoes, maybe  peppers, basil, mint for your water......the list is still evolving.  If you have never made or eaten basil pesto.....this is the time to consider it.   It is absolutely the easiest most nutritious thing you can imagine to prepare.  If you have a knife and a blender, you can make pesto.  Pesto is the life nutrition of many a poor country.....simply take basil leaves and put them in a blender, add olive oil, then add pine nuts (expensive) or pumpkin seeds, and parmesan cheese.  Add to cooked noodles and you have a meal.  If you want to save some for winter, don't add the nuts or cheese, just freeze the basil and olive oil and add the nuts and cheese prior to eating.  

Mushroom shares got some gorgeous oysters last week, not sure what this week, but looking forward.  We take three to four weeks of mushrooms and cook them all up at once, for a flavor festival.  I usually add parsley or another green for flavor and color and of course garlic, and salt, key to mushroom tastiness.  

Pick up your share on time this week, or call and let me know you will be late, that way I can go ahead and put your share in the cooler......versus out in the heat!  Enjoy!
