Week 1: Lettuce Introduce You to Your Radishing CSA Shares

IMG_2421.JPG

I was beginning to think that the CSA season was NEVER going to get here! And boy, oh boy, am I glad that I was wrong about that! Yes, ya'll- we've made it through the winter, and then a little spring, and then back to winter, and then one last spring before the heat of summer and your CSA shares are being assembled for delivery AS WE SPEAK! WHOO HOO, am I right?

But, lets be real. You're not here to hear me waxing philosophical on the advent of early spring. You want to know what is going to be in your first of twenty shares for the week. And for that.. I am happy to oblige. 


CSA Bounty for the Week of 5/20/2018:

  • Radishes
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Leaf Lettuce
  • Kohlrabi
  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Scallions
  • Honey

This week's Cocktail To Go Option (cost an additional $25): The yet-to-be-named cocktail featuring Bramble Lake House Spiced Rum, Passion fruit, and lemon. Absolutely delicious! 

And don't you dare be throwing out those Radish greens! I love to use the (washed and dried) greens in lieu of basil in my favorite pesto recipe. Obviously it isn't the SAME peak of the summer season pesto that we all know and love- but something about the pungent and peppery greens make for a really zesty pesty. 

Also please join Dustin and me for a Meet the Farmer event at Cardinal this Wednesday from 4pm until 6ish. It is supposed to be nice out, perfect for lounging on their perfect for summer porch. 

If week's share is any indication of the summer shares we have in store for you- I'm telling you, it is going to be a very VERY good year! Dustin and I are very much looking forward to serving you this CSA season, and possibly meeting you all soon. Let us know if you have questions or if anything last minute comes up.
