June 14 & June 16
Happy Tuesday folks,
Our crops our looking great and we're getting excited for the Summer produce to start coming in. We have AMAZING heads of romaine lettuce coming in this week's Share... ideal for a crisp, refreshing Caesar salad.
Remember, now is the time to sign up for the Summer CSA Share! ~Farmer Chris
The Summer Share runs for 13 weeks from July 5th - September 29th. Same pick up times are available Wednesday or Friday between 10 and 6. Traveling? Gift that week to a friend or neighbor. Just give them the pick up details and they can pick up in your place. What can you expect in the Summer Share? It may contain tender salad greens, cooking greens, bok choy, Napa cabbage, cilantro, radishes, salad turnips, lettuce, and sugar snap peas like the spring share at first. Then tender bunching roots will start making the scene - carrots and beets. Then more substantial brassicas like cabbage and kohlrabi. Then the fruiting crops will join the mix - cucumbers, zucchini, eggplant, peppers, tomatoes, and more! New potatoes come in around mid-July. Head lettuces, fennel, radicchio, and summer salad mixes will be represented. There will usually be something from the onion family - scallions, fresh onions, shallots, onions, or garlic. And we try to include a fresh herb each week, too - usually parsley, cilantro, dill, basil, thyme, rosemary, or sage. Add On Shares are available for Summer too!
The Kitchen at White Barn is back for season 3! Stop by for a delicious pizza when you pick up your Share this week. Hot pies made by Chef Shawn with farm fresh, seasonal ingredients. The Kitchen's Summer hours will be Wednesday - Saturday from 11am - 8pm **subject to change with special events & holidays
