It has been a hectic few days with the crew starting at 5-6am in order to get the harvest in before it was 100 degrees. We did it! The newsletter this week will be slightly abbreviated, but I did want to let you know that because of the heat, you are getting Hakurei Salad Turnips without the greens, and none of the usual cooking greens this week. The heat also took the summer squash from tiny to plus size over the weekend.
That said, still lotsa great stuff in the share and three cheers for the farm crew who busted it out to make that happen ????????????
Highlights from the CSA box this week…
- Sugar Snap Peas hardly need a recipe. They make a great snack on the way home, or you can add them to salad or try one of these recipes at Cook With What You Have.
- Make sure and use the greens with your Spring Onions! They are delicious and can be used just like scallions.
- The Fennel Bulb are delicious thinly sliced in salad or roasted. It is delicious by itself or on Fish Tacos.
