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!
