CSA Week 11-2012
Right now we are getting a torrential rainstorm but I'm not complaining. We got 3/4 of an inch last night and it sounds like we are probably getting at least that much right now. Be thankful.
The heat has been oppressive again this week but we are very grateful for the good harvests that we continue to experience. The first round of beans are done but we hope that the successive plantings will be bearing in a couple of weeks. Squash and zucchini are also playing out but again we have high hopes for our succession plantings.
The biggest challenge we have had this year has been with our peppers. They have not performed as well as we expected. We are pleased that this week we will be able to share a couple of Sweet Diablos and one Nardello. These are sweet peppers that are especially good when roasted.
Hope you have been enjoying the cherry tomatoes since we are going to give two pints this week. The big tomatoes are starting to come on and you will get one large Brandywine this week. There are a total of 14 different varieties of vegetables in you share this week.
If you pick up the newest issue of Edible Louisville (available free at the Market if you go by the Beargrass Christian booth) there is a wonderful recipe for sauteed cherry tomatoes. In addition to the tomatoes, it also uses basil and garlic. So, if you make this you would be using three ingredients from you CSA share.
As always, we enjoy visiting with you here at the farm and at the market. Thank you for your continued support of local, organic farming.
