My favorite day of the week!
I had gotten an email requesting a list of what was in my box. I copied and pasted this from the HighCross Farm CSA newsletter.
Lettuce – One head of Red Salad Bowl, an oakleaf type, one head of Red Sails, a red leaf type, and one head of Merveille De Quatre Saisons, a butterhead type.
Arugula – This crop is winding down; we will have more really nice arugula again in the cooler weather of Fall.
Summer Squash – Zucchini and patty pan types (see comments and recipes in last week’s newsletter).
Onions – Walla Walla Sweet, or Ringmaster White Sweet Spanish, or Redwing long storage type.
Cucumbers – The first of the season; they will be in your box regularly for most of the summer. See recipe below. Send us your favorite cucumber recipes.
Broccoli – Good tasting and good for you!
New Potatoes – Three pounds. Freshly dug this morning. See Sarah’s website for Recipes.
Garlic – These have been curing up in the barn loft for several weeks and are now ready for distribution; they will be in the boxes every other week or so for the rest of the season.
Braising Greens – Asian Greens: a head of Waido.
Red Raspberries – One half pint.
Basil is one of the most versatile herbs.
My thoughts on this weeks box…
I love that huge red onion! I can’t wait to try the asian greens. Yay! cucumbers!! Im pleased as always. I’ve said it once, I’ll say it a thousand times. HighCross Farm never
