This week is the beginning of our regular 20 week harvest season.
Community Supported Agriculture participants will pick up the following vegetables here on the farm.
Members come on:
Wednesdays between 2 pm and 6 pm
Saturdays between 9 am and noon.
Here is what is in this week’s harvest:
1 bunch of Hakurei Turnips– these are great chopped and added raw to a salad or lightly braised and added to greens. And the Turnip greens are great treated just like any other cooking greens. We suggest a very lightly wilting of the greens- they are FRESH and harvested on Wednesday and need only a few moments in a pan with olive oil to be ready to eat.
1 bunch of Red Russian Kale– again freshly harvested- just wash chop and wilt on low heat in olive oil for no more than a few minutes.
1 bunch of Collards for braising
1 bag of mixed Braising Greens (komatsuna, mibuna, green wave mustard, Osaka purple to name a few varieties in the mix) This mix of greens is for cooking down lightly- same as above.
1 bag of Spinach to be eaten raw or cooked down
1 bunch of Spring Onions
1 handful of Garlic Scapes– sauteed with greens
1 quart of fresh Strawberries (early glo) harvested across the street at Butlers Orchard. Butlers grow these conventionally.
Please remember to ALWAYS wash ALL of your vegetables. And if you wash them right when you get home from the farm, they will freshen up and keep longer in your icebox. Plus, washing your vegetables ensures healthy food.
