CSA Share Week 4

This week’s basket contents are coming in late as we were out until after dark harvesting for you!

Swiss Chard

Salad Mix

Scarlet Queen salad turnips- This will be the final week for this variety so enjoy them.  We have been roasting these sliced with beets in the oven.  They soften quicker than the beets so it makes for a nice variance in texture.

Chioggia Beets with greens-  So yummy and sweet!  If you are confused about who is a beet and who is a turnip this week look at the roots, the Chioggia beet has a very complex, hairy root system.

Red Russian Kale- This is the last week for this variety of kale as well.  (Thank you summer heat)

Summer Squash- The first of the season!  Out with the spring turnips and greens and in with thickly sliced squash on the grill.

Cucumbers-  The Adam Gherkin pickling cucumber again this week.

Fresh Garlic

Farm Activities:

Transplanting continued of the fall brassica crops this week.  We also did some cover crop seeding at the Charlemont Academy field.  We also managed to escape the farm for an overnight camping trip, a rare treat during the busy growing season.

The Raspberries are ripe in Worthington at the old farmstead on Starkweather.  CSA members are welcome to PYO organic raspberries.  Call us before you come over if you don’t know where to go.

Now it’s off to bed for the 5AM wake up for market and CSA distribution.  Enjoy this week’s harvest!
