We spent a lot of time in the land of kale this morning giving all of our plants a good pruning. If you are so inclined, this is a great week for kale as well as our other greens and salad mix. The summer weather continues to provide for us and things are looking happy and healthy across the farm. The 25 acre is becoming more and more verdant and lush and the 2 acre and hoops are feeling bountiful. The weeds are also coming on strong, but we are keeping them at bay. Included in this week’s CSA are hakurei turnips. These are bunched like radishes, but taste oh so different. Pearce, our farm manager, calls them the “apple of the spring” because they are so sweet and juicy. Below is a recipe for Maple Glazed Turnips and Carrots. Don’t forget to add the greens to something you are cooking too. They are mild and a great source of vitamin C, Folic Acid, and B vitamins.
Don’t forget your clean containers and various bags for things. We are going to continue the set-ups we did last week. We felt it was the best move for the times and appreciate your patience as things continue to evolve. It is always a pleasure to see your smiling eyes above your masks!
We would love to see some more of what you do with the veggies you take home in your CSA. Your culinary creations are inspiring for us on the farm and other CSA members. Feel free to post on our CSA Member Facebook Group.
