Week #2 – CSA Extension
2019 Extension CSA (11/ 5 – 12/ 6 no delivery Thanksgiving week)
Your CSA Extension share will help you keep you eating healthy through the winter.
QUICK TIPS – Take a look at our Pinterest Boards
We have set up boards for all vegetables.
Butternut Squash – We tried a new recipe! Butternut Red Lentil Stew (pictured at left) We didn’t have sweet potato and substituted Kennebec potato from last week. We also used collard greens and minced parsley. Substitute options are available (chickpea/lentil; greens-any) It was delicious and we have made 2 double batches since last week. We have this one on our Pinterest Board or you can follow the link above. Turnip – Can be used in raw salads, slaws, soups, boiled, roasted, sautees, stirfries. NEW recipe – Turnip Fries – healthy low carb option (vs. potato) and there is a link for vegan parm- super easy. They won’t be as crispy as regular fries. If any of you have an air-fryer please let me know if you test this one. Cabbage – soups, stirfry, slaw, sauerkraut, and roasted. Try cabbage steaks – so easy and yummy. Another quick option is Cabbage BBQ – Shred/slice fine in a mandoline – steam until tender in a pot with just a little water until tender, add your favorite BBQ sauce to taste and have “not-pulled pork” sandwiches on a favorite roll. Watermelon radish – roasted, stirfry, sautees, shredded, salads, slaw. This recipe for a quick raw salad has carrot, parsley, and watermelon radish.
The weather has certainly taken a turn. Frigid temps this week but we have the garlic in the ground! We planted 3 beds of garlic this season (1 more than last year). The larger bulbs are broken up by hand into cloves then planted in the ground 12″ apart in 3 rows 9″ apart. That is a total of approx. 3,000 cloves. We use a dibble to make a spot and cloves are planted point side up, covered with soil, and mulched with organic straw for the winter to help with frost heave damage and weed suppression. It is done! What a great feeling. This crop will be harvested in July 2020.
