Week 13 - CSA Newsletter 2014

Good morning members!

We hope you enjoyed your surprise melons last week!  They were small but hopefully sweet and there were just enough for the CSA.  Here is your list for the coming week:

  • garlic * ail
  • potatoes * patates
  • baby lettuce mix * mélange de laitues
  • onions * oignons
  • rutabaga
  • bok choy
  • kohlrabi * chou-rave
  • cucumbers * concombres
  • pepper or eggpant * poivron ou aubergine
And possibly radishes and/or winter squash * radis et/ou courge.  The butternuts are looking good!

Your baby lettuce mix is not spicy this week.  Enjoy these tender leaves with your crunchy cucumbers and shaved or grated kohlrabi.  Kohlrabi is also delicious roasted or chopped into soup, much like your potatoes, garlic and onions.  
Peppers and eggplants have been sparse this year, due to issues with our potting soil but hopefully everyone will get a taste of at least one, if not both.  Ratatouille is wonderful to make with these items.
Start collecting your winter squash recipes because you'll receive quite a few varieties in the final four weeks of the CSA.  It's hard to believe how quickly the season has flown by.
We will be offering fall boxes again this year, packed full of storage items such as potatoes, onions, squashes, garlic, carrots and beets, as well as fall greens, such as spinach and kale.  A fall box is $50 plus $5 for home delivery or you can pick up at the farm.  We will be offering 2 rounds of fall boxes, the weeks of Oct 20th and November 3rd.  Please email Daizy to order your fall boxes.  Have a great weekend and happy cooking!
Team Luxy
