In the meantime, here's what's in your shares this week:

-Beets

CSA Newsletter Week 6

Hello members and friends, 
 welcome to week 6 of the CSA. So finally we are getting some rain, which should ensure our veggies get a boost of growth. For some crops, like onions, it will be too late because they didn't receive it during the critical stages of growth. Consequently, yields will be smaller than they were last year. 
On the other hand, the dry and less humid conditions were ideal for harvesting garlic which we spent much of last week doing. Yields look good and we look forward to distributing some of the different varieties after they have fully dried and cured in about 3 to 4 weeks. 

Here are the veggies you can expect in your share this week:

-Beets
-Onions
-Garlic
-Cabbage
-Cucumbers
-Zuchinni
-Lettuce
-Basil

And here are your featured recipes:

CSA Newsletter Week 4

Hello members and friends,

We hope you all survived the heat wave and are enjoying the beautiful weather. Some of our veggies are certainly enjoying it. Crops like cucumbers, zucchinis, tomatoes and peppers are thriving as long as they are receiving enough water. Given the current dry conditions, our irrigation systems are running almost non-stop. Cool weather crops like lettuces, radishes, and bok choy are having a harder time and tend to bolt; shoot to seed and become bitter. Here's what's in your share this week:

  • Green Onions
  • Garlic
  • Basil
  • Kohlrabi
  • Garlic scapes
  • Dill
  • Beets
  • Swiss Chard
  • And here this week's feature recipes (find more on our website here):

Happy Cookin!
