Whats in my box? update on farm production

Posted 6/19/2017 6:48am by Jill Rendleman.

Hopefully many of you saw the fresh garlic and basil and have tried your hand at pesto over the weekend.  Mushroom share members got Pippinos! this week.  Gorgeous and delicious and not to be found anywhere else but in your box!  The blueberries were first of the crop and it looks like we will have many more this week.  While I love the smaller berries, they take longer to pick!  Find a use for those green onions, just chop and add to meats or salads...they add nice color and flavor.   The heirloom tomatoes have a good taste and texture, so we are happy with that.  The summer crisp lettuce you are eating is mild and perfect with a light dressing and a few colorful additions.  Look for more lettuce and tomatoes this week.  You may want to consider freezing some tomatoes, if I have one going ripe on the counter and know I can't use it for a few days, I simply quarter it and slip it into a freezer bag...and there it waits for winter soups.  Fresh tomatoes you plan to eat as fresh, should never be put into the fridge where they will loose some of their taste.....but when quartered and thrown into to freezer, they keep that summer flavor well.  

New crop zucchini and cucumbers are coming along as well as the eggplant which we are watering like crazy.  The sweet peppers are starting to produce, maybe this week.  Our corn and green beans are planted and looking nice....so far the deer have not found them, but thats always a possibility!  New potatoes just loved this weekends rain.....just what they needed.  There are a few strawberries here and there, but they are dwindling..... not enough for the whole CSA family.  

Look for a notice on member pick days, not sure what yet....maybe blueberries!
