CSA Update: Halfway Through 2017 Season

Hello! Want to share a quick update on where the CSA is. We are about halfway through the season and getting a great variety of things. Recently we have had some amazing corn and tomatoes, lots of different kinds of peppers, green and wax beans, kale and, new this week, melon.

Week 8 of our 2017 CSA. Lots of good variety of foods!

As usual, my favorite thing is to eat the veggies fresh at their peak, but I’ve been making a lot of veggie burgers or freezing vegetables. I really want to consume them fresh, but then in the winter, it’s so hard to eat store-bought vegetables, so I’ve been doing a better job of preserving them to enjoy later in the year.

The garden (not pictured) is growing well, but ALL the tomatoes get big and green and aren’t turning red. It’s like it reaches a certain point and stops. Have you ever experienced that? Is it the soil? Did some weather event occur that has stunted growth? The herbs are alive and well, and really that’s where the best growth is coming from this year.

What fresh local food can’t you get enough of right now?
