CSA Week 5: Happy 4th of July!


Hello All, Before I get into the details...YES there is regular CSA pickup on Tuesday the 4th of July. If for any reason you can't make pickup please let me know as soon as possible, we have options! Now for the farm news this week. It has been hot, muggy and wet so when the sun broke through the clouds at the end of the week we picked up our hoes and got right to weeding! Everything (including the weeds) has exploded in growth with all this rain but it is hard to stay on top of the weeds when it is so wet. In the hoop houses we have been harvesting cucumbers and we ate the first two cherry tomatoes! Yum, tomato season isn't too far off now. A Note On Pick Your Own As a reminder, all CSA members have access to unlimited pick your own peas, herbs and flowers. This means you can come anytime to pick these items as many times as you like. The peas are exploding right now so don't miss this delicious window of time. YES you can come pick during the week! Be sure to ask us at pickup to show you how to tell if the fence is off. You can also always text Elsbeth at 603-716-1814 and if we are around (we usually are) we can turn it off for you and help you find things. Farm Store News Check out our new stand up freezer, stocked with delicious Archway Farm (Keene, NH) sausage, hot dogs (seriously the best I have ever had) and pork chops, as well as ice cream, popsicles and more. We hear it is much easier to find what you are looking for now :) Please remember to bring back granola jars, pint and quart containers, rubber bands and black plant sale pots. We will resuse!

Not a CSA member?

Our Farm Store is open every day dawn to dusk and is self serve. We stock the store on Wednesdays so that is a great time to come shop. You can also find our produce at Nature's Green Grocer, The Root and Rosaly's Garden. Feel free to come by the farm anytime to walk around and say hello.

CSA Pickup Important Reminders Pickup is from 3pm-5:30pm at Nubanusit Neighborhood and Farm, Peterborough, NH, 03458. If you are unable to make it to CSA pickup, please let me know! We have options. Please bring a reusable bag to pack your share into. We wash most of our produce before distribution but its always a good idea to give everything a rinse before you eat it. Our veggies can last weeks if stored properly! Click the document below for tips on storing your produce. Vegetable_Storage_Tips.pdf

What's in my share this week?

This week may include:

Kale - chop leaves and stems and sauté with oil, salt and pepper. Head Lettuce - green and red curly. Great for salads or lettuce wraps. Summer Lettuce Mix- a mix of red and green flat and curly. Washed, bagged and ready to salad! Swiss Chard - beautifully rainbow and so tender. Green Cabbage - we are quite proud of these perfect cabbages. delicious sauted with oil, salt and curry powder or made into a simple slaw with oil, salt, pepper and lemon juice. Kohlrabi - purple! I have to admit I am new to kohlrabi, both to growing and eating, but I will be trying these Kohlrabi Fritters this week. Also great in slaws and salads as well as roasted. Beets - red and gold. We love roasting with oil salt and pepper or shaving into a salad. Cucumbers - best eaten fresh with a sprinkle of salt. Last night I made a simple dill, yogurt, lime and salt dip for and it was a hit. Broccoli - classic broccoli crowns, best roasted or sautéed and always delicious. Scallions - easy bunching onions for sautéing or using in salad dressings. Garlic Scapes - a seasonal favorite. Scapes are the top growth point from each garlic plant that must be harvested for a garlic clove to fully form. Use as you would garlic or onions or make a delicious pesto (see recipe!) Bok Choy - great chopped and sautéed with butter, salt or roasted. Mild and Spicy Microgreen Mixes - brassica mixes great tossed in salads. Available for Pick Your Own - a farmer will show you where to pick! Peas Cilantro Parsley Basil Mint Sage Thyme Lemon Balm Chamomile Flowers


Recipes Ideas:

Kohlrabi and cabbage are the veggie highlights this week. We harvested the first cabbage for fish tacos last week and made a simple slaw with oil, salt, pepper and lemon juice. Simple and so delicious! I highly recommend Dishing Up The Dirt website for recipe inspiration. She is a farmer and separates recipes by vegetable. I am going to try the kohlrabi fritters. Send us your recipes if you tried something and loved it! THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT! We are excited to be growing for you.
