Hi there CSA Members! Happy Fall!
We’ve just returned from a much needed respite and camping trip with a good group of friends this past weekend, and we’re feeling energized and ready to finish out the farming season with a bang. (Also, for that reason, we’ll be keeping this newsletter a tad short!)
You might have noticed that we’ve missed the past couple weeks of newsletters (oops!) while we were having such a huge surplus of shiitakes during our add-on rush…sorry about that! We apologize for any inconvenience. Though it’s good we haven’t heard any complaints thus far…(and we made sure to let you know what will be in the box personally by email, at least!)
This week our amazing bounty of shiitakes continues, and it seems like summer is still holding on for a little while! Here’s what to expect:
- Shiitake mushrooms (1/4 pound)
- Heirloom tomato
- Cherry tomatoes
- Sweet peppers
- Habanero pepper (New!)
- Kale bunch
- Garlic (Extra this week – two heads!)
- Cabettes! (New!)
A couple notes on things: yes, we’ve got some new items….
We’ll have habanero pepper this week, one of the new and exciting things we’re growing in 2020. (We don’t have a whole lot of experience with them!) Watch out, these are HOT! Use them sparingly if you’re sensitive…but when used correctly they impart tons of flavor, and even have a fruity, juicy taste to them too.
We’ll also have cabettes! These are smaller cabbage heads that grow on plants after the first main cabbage head is harvested. Think of them as (obviously) small cabbage (or very large Brussels sprouts) and prepare them accordingly!
If you EVER have questions about items in your CSA or farm share box, please let us know! Whether it’s how to use them, what they are, or anything that might make you curious.
We love to talk food! | – firstname.lastname@example.org –
Thank you for choosing us to be your farmers!
