Week 13: Getting Better all the Thyme

Hidey- Ho! 

Thank you to all y'all who took the time to complete the Mid- Season Survey. Yes yes.. we still technically have ten more days to collect responses before drawing any major conclusion from these data. However, the information we've gotten from the 17 of you who have given us feedback has been monumentally helpful-- and we're not going to wait any longer to implement some of the things we can do to serve you better. 

One CSA member remarked (and honestly, I've been kind of mulling on this too over the last season) is that if you do your meal planning over the weekend, it's kind of hard to accommodate the veggies you learn will be available on Sunday night or Monday afternoon. I agree, this would be awesome. 

While I can't give you the set-in-stone share intel any earlier.. Dustin and I generally do have an idea of what is likely to appear in your boxes a week in advance. Thus, were going to start giving you that information for all your meal planning needs, with the understanding that these forecasts (as I am calling them) are subject to change and in the event of a major weather snafoo might be not that helpful. But for the most part, we can give you something to go off of when making your meal plans and shopping lists. 

See! We're already operating better. So thank you to everyone who gave us the feedback to help us do that! We couldn't do this without you (seriously!). 

What's in the share boxes this week?

  • Golden Potatoes
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Eggplant
  • Bell Peppers
  • Cipollini Onions
  • Sweet Peppers

What am I making this week?

  1. Spiced Peppers and Eggplant
  2. Mustard Roasted Potatoes
  3. Savory Peach and Cucumber Salad
  4. Caramelized Onion Jam

*The Forecast for Week 14 Delivery: Crops that like it hot are thriving rn (as you can probably imagine), so next week's share will likely have the following items: Peppers, Cucumbers, Eggplant, Cherry Tomatoes, Green Onions, and Honeynut Squash.
