2017 CSA Week 8

by danberube on August 20, 2017

Hello Farm Friends!

Wow what a busy week. With harvesting, CSA pickups and a big farmer’s market yesterday, the time just flew by! We’ll definitely be playing catch-up with some farm chores this week.

New for this week will be another squash called delicata. If you’ve never tried it before, here’s how¬†Modern Farmer¬†describes it:

“Also known as “sweet potato squash” for its brown sugar flavor, delicata tastes like a cross between fresh corn and pumpkin pie. Like all hard squash, delicata is high in beta-carotene and vitamin C, relatively low in calories and astonishingly versatile.”

Tomato update: We should see an increase in quantities this week. The cherries in particular are ripening very quickly and have a wonderful sweetness to them.

Just want to end by saying once again it’s really great to talk to you all about how you are enjoying your veggies and what you like the best. All the feedback gets factored into next year’s growing plan.

Thanks & see you at the farm!

-Dan
