A colorful share today!  First sweet peppers, first sweet onion, first romano green beans, plus some regulars: tomatoes, carrots, rainbow lacinato kale, lettuce head, cucumbers, and zucchini. The peppers are all sweet.  I didn’t really grow hot peppers this year because some people don’t really go for them.  The onion is basically a Walla Walla… Continue reading 8/22/13

There are a few new items in Monday’s share.  Romano beans and sweet onions.  The romano beans are like a big green bean so you can treat them like that.  They are a little on the big side, but with a little cooking I think the flavor will be ok.  2 whole pounds of them! … Continue reading 8/19/13

First of all, I want to share a website which I just found.  It is an entertaining look at what to do with some of those not-so-familiar CSA vegetables.  Some of them we have already passed now in the season, but you may see them again in the fall.  It does talk about chard which… Continue reading 8/5/13

In your box today you will find: Instead of a lettuce head you have some salad mix – a mix of arugula and lettuce leaves.  It should be spun or pat dry as soon as possible for longest storage (I don’t have a good way to fully dry the salad without bruising it). First tomatoes… Continue reading 8/1/13

Not one, not two, but THREE new items in the share today!  Green beans, fingerling potatoes, and green peppers.  The peppers are thinnings of what will become sweet yellow and red peppers.  I have to thin out usually just one pepper per plant that gets caught right in the center nook where the main stalk… Continue reading 7/29/13

Today’s share is similar to Monday’s, so check that posting out, with the exception of lacinato kale instead of swiss chard.  For the lettuce, you got either a head of the butterhead “Pirat,” or the romaine “Jericho.”  Monday got frisee or escarole, but you have escarole or radicchio.  They are all somewhat similar chicory salad… Continue reading 7/25/13

Eggplant is here!  Kohlrabi is back for a quick curtain call.  Green onions are on their last legs (I dont think you’ll see them anymore this year).  Carrots are yummy and the newer planting I started harvesting from today looks more productive than the first one.  Lettuce is back for the time being (Pirat is… Continue reading 7/22/13

Sorry this posting is a little late — it was my birthday yesterday and I rushed off to dinner after CSA pickup and didn’t have time to put this together until now. In the share this Monday: – BASIL – a whole pound of genovese basil for your pesto-ing pleasure!  Combine with the garlic in… Continue reading 7/15/13

Today’s share is the same as Monday’s so take a look there — except the kale is lacinato (not rainbow lacinato).  For fava recipes, take a look back at the last few posts and below.  I think at this point the favas do need some cooking as the interior is a bit starchy on some… Continue reading 7/11/13

Today’s share is almost the same as Monday’s so take a look at this page: 7/1/13 However it has the addition of fava beans.  This Mediterranean treat can be eaten a number of ways, including soups, stews, and sautees.  Usually people shell the beans out of the pod, and then remove the waxy outer later… Continue reading 7/3/13
