CSA e- news
With a hint of fall in the air and cooler temperatures this week, we all are looking forward to a break from one of the hottest summers on the farm I can remember. Thanks to all our crew AND volunteers who are out there day to day. Thanks to you all for your compliments/emails/smiles and nice words of support this week. Grateful for glorious rain on the farm!
We loved hearing about the grain shares this past week - so many creative recipes! We are hoping to have another round of wheat berries soon, so those of you who didn't get a bag can do so. We are crossing our fingers for a day that we can also have our own flour!
Onions coming in this week - and as some of you know, onions are one of the best crops we grow! So many onions! Here is our crew in the greenhouse working on processing and curing.
In the background below, are all the mums for our fall displays at both locations.
Remember to come buy pumpkins in October!
Harvest list for Sep. 1-7
featured Recipe ~ fall is in the air but summer crops are still here
1-2 medium summer squash (any variety) washed and cut into chunks
1-2 cloves garlic
approx. 10 leaves of fresh sage, minced
2-3 tablespoons butter
salt/fresh lemon juice on top optional
On low heat, melt the butter with the fresh sage very slowly until the butter has browned and sage is infused completely. Add small chunks of summer squash gently stirring in the butter. cook for a few minutes on low heat, turning over the butter into the squash.
Use the squash in several yummy ways - a squash quesadilla with with fresh basil? Or on top of your head lettuce with sliced tomato and boiled potato for a perfect summer salad? Or try making a creamy polenta and adding the sage summer squash on top!
Have a great week everyone!
Please remember to wash your produce well in cool running water you get home!
