Thank you to all of your fellow CSA Members that attended the Glorious Garlic Harvest!!

It was a great success. We harvested all of the garlic in just a few hours and bundled it to hang to dry. Everyone got to take a bundle home with them. We worked quickly and the sun was quite hot. Afterwards, we enjoyed some seasonal bites, local beverages, lemonade, and conversation.

Thank you Everyone!!

Veggie Notes: Wow!! What a week of veggies. Welcome to Summer.

Quick Tips: – What is a quick pickle? A process to pickle with vinegar and does not have to be canned but must stay refrigerated. Recipe: How to quick pickle any vegetable

  • Parsley: Store wrapped in damp paper towel in a baggie or with fresh trimmed stems in jar of water in the fridge, baggie over top or hang to dry; minced and added to salads, sauces, and marinades; puree into dressings
  • Summer squash – yellow & zucchini – very versatile; raw, grilled, pickled, quick bread, sauté, oodles of zoodles; baked stuffed boats
  • Scallions: add to a variety of dishes; mild onion flavor; can be sliced and frozen – no blanching
  • Eggplant: grilled, roasted, braised; smaller eggplants do not need to be peeled or salted
  • Tomato – do not refrigerate; allow to ripen at room temperature for best flavor;
  • Beans – blanch to freeze (Set out a large bowl of ice water before blanching the beans. In a large saucepan or stock pot, bring 4 quarts water and 1 tablespoon salt to boil. Add the green beans and boil until tender-crisp, but still bright green, about 3 to 5 minutes. Drain well and immediately plunge into ice water to stop the cooking; freeze in baggies or single layer on sheet pan then transfer to baggie)

Farm News:

Tomatoes are starting!! This always seem to signal summer for me. This week everyone will get at least one tomato. Cucumbers are loving the rain and the heat. We have had several heavy downpours over the past week and the soil is soaked. We are unable to do any tractor work or transplanting until it dries out a bit.
