CSA Week 5
Shares are starting to fill out a bit better! I tried watering the beets to give them a boost before picking today, but only came up with enough for half the shares, so the other half will have some chard. Each share contains a small summer squash. When you aren’t expecting the little zucchinis they creep right up on you, but when you are patiently awaiting their growth, they seem to be at a stand-still. There are plenty of flowers, so I hope we can get more in the boxes soon!
The green beans are going strong after a first picking just before market this week This week includes 1 and 1/2 pounds. If anyone is interested in getting some extra to can or freeze, let me know soon, this will be the time! Try this recipe for Crispy Green Bean Fries. Peas are looking good too, but our snow peas are just not producing like last year. Also in the share, some pretty little green onions. The red onions are bulb-ing nicely and I hope to include those soon, as well.
