CSA Shares for 8.5.2015

This week’s Farm Share will most likely include:
Lettuce, Kale, Eggplant, Sweet Pepper, Tomatoes, Summer Squash, Green Beans, Garlic, and a pair of Jalapenos

* Mark your Calendars! *
Our 2015 CSA Member Farm Party will be on Sunday, September 27th, from 2-6 pm.
CSA Members: Please join us on the farm to share food, drink, a members-only farm tour, and a celebration of the 2015 season. Bring some food to share and sit with us for a spell. 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
All Veggies! – We are on a fish sauce kick around here, loving it on many of our veggies. And we love the Bon Appetit magazine, so we will share this recipe: Grilled Vegetable and Rice Salad with Fish Sauce Vinaigrette  Use whatever vegetables you prefer in this montage recipe.
Eggplant and KaleGrilled Eggplant and Greens with Spiced Yogurt
Summer Squash – Hands down, our favorite way to enjoy summer squash is still to grill it. We ate grilled squash both Saturday and Sunday nights this weekend. However, if you can resist grilling it, turn to this recipe: Summer Squash and Quinoa Salad with Walnuts
Tomatoes – We still can’t stop serving tomatoes with every lunch and dinner as a diced salad with minced garlic, salt, and olive oil. We hope you all aren’t sick of tomatoes yet – we can’t imagine that feeling. Regardless, if you can resist the simple raw tomato-salad just described, we have to share a recipe for Tomato & Cheddar Pie
Sweet Peppers – The long, red peppers in recent shares are a variety called Carmen. Completely sweet with no spice, these peppers are simply better than any bell pepper we have ever had. If you can resist eating them as raw slices with cheese or hummus, try the two recipes found here: Grilled Red Peppers with Garlic & Potato, Sweet Pepper & Fennel Salad (potatoes will be in the share again next week, but we don’t yet grow fennel…though we hope to in the future!)

Available for Market Share CSA members to choose from this week:
Basil, Beets, Chard, Flower bouquets, Garlic, Lettuce, Microgreens, Okra, Peppers (jalapenos, sweet bell, padron, lunchbox…), Summer Squash, Tomatoes, …and naturally leavened Hearth Baked Bread.

2015 Market Share CSA Members: Reserve your selection online to pick up on Wednesday, Aug 5th at our farm, in Church Hill, or at Good Health Herbs.

Enjoy ~ Janet, Dan, and the rest of the Broadfork crew
