CSA share- Week 3


This is an example of a FULL share.

Swiss chard, Cabbage, Kale, Lettuce, Scallions or Spring onions, choice of beets or spinach.


Sugar snap peas, herbs.

We have slightly split, or past their ideal harvest standard.  Think of creative ways to utilize our excess of radishes and kohlrabi.  We suggest pickling radishes and kohlrabi chips.  Take advantage!

  1. Made an awesome Chard recipe last night… delicious and also healthy. Swiss chard with bacon, lemon, and I used those wonderful red scallions and garlic shoots as well. I put the details on my SparkPeople recipe box: http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=2139648

    Will there be beets next week? There were none set out for the Tuesday pick up??

    Please remember that you are Tuesday pick-ups are technically behind Friday pick-ups (your first pick-up was a bonus one). Also, as I previously mentioned you will not be getting all the items listed in the share, we don’t always have enough of the same crop for both pick-ups during the same week. This is why I hesitate what to include in the picture of the share each week. Not to worry though you will be getting your fair share of beets this season. I am excited to hear your enthusiasm.

    Thanks Mary Laura! I certainly didn’t mean to come across as impatient. I just wanted to make sure I didn’t miss out on any farm fresh beets (I LOVE them)! My family has really been enjoying our half share as a supplement to our own garden. My daughter (4 yrs old) has discovered a love of kale chips (another batch in the dehydrator as I type) and I’ve enjoyed trying some of the spring items we normally don’t purchase, like kohlrabi and chard. My daughter also finished off half of the peas on the ride home last week. Just a testament to how different (and sweet!) certain things will taste when just picked. thank you for all of your hard work!
