Vegetable CSA Harvest List
As you have probably noticed, every week we tell you what your foundation vegetables will be. This is based on the previous week’s harvest, what the farmers have noticed as they weeded and walked about the farm, and other things like intuition and wild guesses. (We really try to keep those last two to a minimum.)
And, you have probably noticed this too: every week we are a bit off. Experience, intuition, and what you see only gets you so far. We never actually know what we have until we harvest it all. And every week we are surprised.
We take great pride in managing the vegetables we have to make sure that there are the right amounts of all the things. And we continue to learn about what to expect when and how to judge amounts in the field. Work in progress, you know. What would life be without those goals you are always working on.
So, with all of that said, we really, truly, almost can guarantee that one of the foundation vegetables will be Row 7 cilantro. (Check out the Vegetable ID above. Row 7 Cilantro looks VERY different from the cilantro you are used to, but it tastes the same and is delicious.) There will be other foundational items, but I don’t dare take a guess at them now. Now here’s hoping that the cilantro doesn’t bolt between now and Tuesday!
We have been keeping an eye on the hoops and 2-acre garden and have a pretty good idea of what is out there and ready to be harvested, but this is a Sunday estimation of what we will be harvesting on Tuesday. Also, because we have a market style CSA, this isn’t a guarantee of 1 of all these things for everyone. Instead, this will be the variety of what will hopefully (fingers crossed) have for you to choose from this week.)
Other Vegetable Options will probably include:
large heirloom tomatoes
patty pan squash
hot peppers (?)
This week our Meat CSA features the second round of PORK. Everyone will get a smoked pork cut or two. This includes:
- thick ham steaks
- ham roasts
- ham hocks
Then the rest of the CSA will be made up of other pork cuts including, but not limited to:
1 – 2 smoked pork
1 other cut (depending on weight)
1-2 smoked pork
2-3 other pork cuts (depending on weight)
Keep an eye on our Instagram stories for a tour of what the options are on Wednesday around 11 am.
