What’s In Your Box? Sept 18

Good Morning! What a warm and beautiful weekend we had! I just wanted to thank those of you who came out to the dinner at our house last week…..it was such a fun night! We hope you enjoyed your time and went home with full, satisfied stomachs. To those of you who couldn’t attend….we missed you! We hope to continue doing dinners for the CSA members and other events so hopefully another time will work out. Next year I will have to look into the date a little better.

The list of produce available this week is long! It is encouraging to still have so much to share, however, there may not be enough of each and every thing to put it in every box. Some shares may have broccoli this week, for example, while others have sweet potatoes. But I will do my best today to keep them equal. Since its so dark even as I type, deliveries may be a little later today since there’s plenty to clean and pack.

Here’s what you can look for this week:)

What’s In Your Box?? Wednesday Sept 5

Hey all ! Alright ….here’s the updated list for what you’ll find in your box tomorrow after looking through the gardens a little better today. I am super excited to have scored a fun “not so little” addition to your share this week:)

Summer Squash

Sweet Corn (a couple of ears)

Tomatoes (mainly romas, some heirloom varieties and cherries)

Peppers (Green bell, Hot Peppers of all sorts)

Tomatillos

Eggplant (multiple varieties)

Chinese Cabbage (2 varieties)

Kale

Beets (Red and Yellow)

Turnips (may only be in full shares)

Leeks

Radishes

Parsley

Beans (They just keep coming ….so I picked them)

WATERMELONS!

My sister in law grew a large amount of watermelons and actually has them coming out of her ears so I purchased them for a stellar deal. Since we are on our first year in the new garden and learning how to utilize our space, this is something that I have missed growing this year. She uses the same growing practices as I do so they are pesticide free.  The ones I am including in your box were picked last week so they are ripe NOW. She said to eat them sooner than later…..and most of them are seeded. I hope you enjoy them!

Here are some recipes for you to try:)
