Another beautiful morning here in the fields. Amazingly, it may shape up to be the hottest day of the summer!
wax BEANS or SUMMER SQUASH
purple BOK CHOY
The onions in today's share have slight bruises on them. They are still edible and delicious. The tender parts can be cut out. As this bruising does not allow them to store long-term, we're distributing them now while they are fairly intact.
The bok choy offered today is the result of thinning a tightly planted bed. We plan to offer full sized heads later in the fall after they mature and fill in the spaces in the row left after we thinned this morning. Two harvests in one bed! Delicious in stir fries.
Next week is the first distribution of our Fresh, Fall share! You'll likely see some new faces around the fields or share barn. These participants will be receiving the same veggies as the full season, but have signed on solely for the final 8 weeks of the distribution season. Hopefully you'll have the opportunity to introduce yourself and help folks feel welcome as new and returning members of the CSA. There are two orientation opportunities for new members this Saturday, 11am-noon or 4-5pm.
