CSA Wk 4: PickUp Wed 7/5, OR Sat 7/8

Posted 7/4/2017 3:43pm by Jennifer LaMonaca.

ON THE TABLE IN FARM SHOP… Scallions, Radish, Cabbage, Broccoli, Cucumbers, Zucchini (green/yellow), Beets, Carrots, Lettuce, Kale, Kohlrabi, Garlic Scapes (make the pesto!!!) and maybe some other greens.

  

PICK YOUR OWN… Beans (green/yellow), Herbs AND Flowers! AND Blueberries.

  • Beans: Lots of Beans!  Extras for sale. 
  • Flowers/Herbs: Please bring your own scissors, AND a small jar/cup for getting flowers/herbs home fresh and lively; something that will fit in your cup holder. Light on herbs and flowers, they will get bigger and fill in as we pick throughout summer. 
  • Herbs – Cilantro, Basil (Italian and Lemon), Parsley, Chives, Rosemary, and Thyme – snip what you need for the week. 
 

Farmer Tip: flowers – as you cut in field, strip leaves from stems and drop on ground; hold bouquet together w/ rubber band. Same for Herbs too, place in same jar with flowers.  I keep together on my counter and use herbs as needed throughout the week.   
 
Farm Updates… Crew working hard, and on the 4th of July, bringing in the harvest for Week 4 CSA.  Many thanks to the crew for their support, and for a job well done.  In addition to the weekly harvest of all the healthy veggies, we are tending to fall crops in the greenhouse, transplanting and seeding in the fields, weeding and so on.  And the heat and humidity add another layer to the cake!  On a personal side, farmer Ryan spent a week in the hospital for probably Lymes, still trying to diagnose.  He is OK and back on the farm on light duty. Thanks for all the well wishes! As a result, our inventory of extras for sale – the cheeses, pasta are low; Ryan handles this for me.  We should be stocked up again in the coming week. Also, look forward to local corn and peaches soon from our farm friends in Hammonton.
 
  
 
Fresh Baked Breads and baked goods, Hammerbacher…sure to please!  On hand every Wed and Sat until sold out. 
 
See you on the Farm!
