CSA week 14

In this week’s box

Edamame beans
Head lettuce
Salad mix
Summer squash and zucchini
Broccoli raab
Sweet corn
Eggplant (not grown by us)

Fruit Share: Asian pears, European plums and magnolia gold apples all from Downing Fruit Farm

Vegetable notes:
Our eggplant crop is not producing well this year but we were able to get some from our friend and fellow grower Michael Malone of Hungry Toad Farm for this week’s box. Please note that the eggplant is not certified organic, but Michael does grow through organic methods. Some eggplant are traditional globe eggplant while others are long slender Japanese eggplant.

Watch out for corn ear worms in this week’s crop. It is best to shuck the corn now, get rid of the worms and then store the corn in plastic in the fridge until you are ready to use it.

We have set the date for our CSA member potluck! On Sunday September 22 from 5 to 8 we will open up the farm to our CSA members for a potluck. Please join us as we celebrate the season with wonderful food and great conversation. We will also give tours of the farm during the event. We will provide tableware, apple cider and vegetable chili and ask our members to bring a covered dish to share. We hope that you and your family (friends are invited too!) will be able to join us!
