WEEK 15:: “What’s in the Bag??”

It’s finally looking like a garden as we clear away the overgrowth from the spring floods and finalize our seeding and transplanting for the next 7 weeks of our 2015 CSA.

Today, you’ll find some rich sage, typically used for making stuffing or flavoring pork, but here is an article with plenty more you can do with fresh sage! By now, everyone has tasted our tubers, both pink and purple and a few of you will be getting the first of our fall lettuces today.

Peas and beans are doing well in the fields with spinach, beets and carrots just poking through the surface! If I owe you tomatoes, please mention it today, as we want to get everyone caught up over the next two weeks while harvest of our beefsteak tomatoes is still flowing. Apples and pears are early this season and remarkably tasty, so get your baking hat on! Each share includes up to 3lbs of apples, but as a CSA member, you may take all the apples you can eat/share, so please bring a bushel basket if you want some extra tonight!!

Our apple trees conquered the excessive wet, cold spring and produced quite tasty fruit despite battling fungus and rust like many other crops this season.
