Chatfield CSA e-news for July 3 - 5

Posted 6/30/2018 12:32pm by Josie Hart.

Dear Shareholders,

This week we'll start pulling our earliest variety of garlic, Tempico Rojo. It is a smaller variety but packs a punch, with purple stripes and purple wrappers on the cloves. These are fresh, not cured like our main season garlic, so keep it in the fridge if you don't use it right away. 

We'll have one more week of cherries for the Fruit Share, and then a little break until early peaches come on. 


  • Garlic
  • Kale
  • Carrots
  • Basil
  • Hakurei turnips
  • Dill

*Please note the exact share may change due to weather or crop conditions*

FEATURED RECIPE: Kohlrabi Carrot Slaw

Another simple one, folks (I hope I'm not being too redundant with the raw salad recipes but these are my ideal summer preparations - I'll leave the more elaborate recipes til fall, and as always send on any ingenious recipes you come up with!)


  • 2 bulbs kohlrabi (peeled and grated)
  • 1 apple (cored and grated)
  • grated carrots
  • 2 tablespoons roughly chopped parsley
  • salt and black pepper
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Using the largest size holes on a box grater, grate the carrot, kohlrabi and apple into a large bowl (watch your knuckles!). Toss with parsley, oil, vinegar, mustard, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Serve!
