CSA2016 Week 3: Something(s) Sweet

Week three top of box

Week three and the weather is gorgeous!  These longest days of the year allow for much to get done, and that’s a good thing because there is no shortage of things to do.  The heat does require a little watering here and there, but considering how much things have been growing, it’s no surprise.  Beans are blooming, cabbage is heading and I see the very beginnings of some broccoli.  Amazing eating season is upon us.

This week’s CSA share contains: lettuce, kale, onions, fresh garlic, garlic scapes, cylindrical beets, sugar snap peas, and rhubarb only because there is also a quart of strawberries as well.  The large share also has an extra bundle of golden beets, purple Pak choy and a small head of cabbage.  If you really don’t want to use the rhubarb, simply chop, throw in a freezer bag, and freeze till the craving comes back.  There is also an herb bundle with a sprig of the tarragon (excellent with chicken) and a few sprigs of mint for mojitos or tea. 

Enjoy these long days of summer while they last!
