Drop in for just a bit or stay the whole afternoon. Driving directions and information (including tour time, tba) found here.
Recipe Suggestions: see these and others cataloged on our Recipe Page
Eggplant – Stuffed Eggplant is on our list to make this week, Spaghetti with Eggplant and Tomato Sauce is what we enjoyed last week (with pasta from Richmond’s Bombolini Pasta).
Sweet Peppers – the long, red peppers in shares recently is the Carmen pepper. It looks scary spicy but it is all sweet, we promise. It’s an Italian Bull’s horn variety and we love it. Add it to salad, or slice it and spread goat cheese on the slices.
Chard – We will keep saying it: We love love love our chard scrambled with eggs, as in this Swiss Chard Scramble recipe.
Potatoes – We grow just a few white potatoes each year, just for our CSA members. Last year every single one of them rotted in the ground during a rainy spring spell, so we are excited to dig potatoes today! Try them these ways: New Potatoes with Basil, Roasted Potatoes with Tomatoes, Basil, and Garlic
Available for Market Share CSA members to choose from this week:
Basil, Beets, Chard, Eggplant, Flower bouquets, Garlic, Green Beans, Kale (curly, bagged), Peppers (jalapenos, bell, padron…), Salad Mix (a wee bit), Summer Squash, Tomatoes, Watermelon…and naturally leavened Hearth Baked Bread.
