Farmer Dave CSA Week 6


This past week’s CSA box held some sweet surprises, including three ears of sweet corn (a real treat since I don’t usually get corn this fresh unless I visit my family in Pennsylvania during the summer), a bunch of carrots, and a big bag of wax beans, one of my favorite childhood veggies. We also received another kohlrabi bulb, a beautiful head of lettuce (romaine, I think), basil, and a pair of cipollini onions. Oh, and more zucchini and summer, squash, of course!

    Aren’t CSA’s the greatest? We have had a CSA share for 7 out the 9 past years in 3 different states. This year has been touch and go with our current CSA due to extremes in weather. It started out so wet that most of the local farmers were close to a month behind with planting, then it moved into record breaking highs with no rain.

    Isn’t the sweet corn the best? Today we got 26 ears of organic sweet corn, garlic, MORE basil, green beans, onions, turnips, a few carrots, a couple of cucumbers, jalapeno peppers, some sweet peppers, little artichokes, and an eggplant!!

    When we were in Alaska we got kohlrabi and lots of cole crops which I miss dearly plus the sweetest carrots known to mankind! Delicious!!

    Hope you are enjoying the summer!!

    Peggy – CSAs are awesome, and it sounds like you’ve had some great experiences with the ones that you’ve been a part of. I’m sorry to hear about your current CSA being touch and go because of the weather. I was a little worried about that, too, but I’m thankful that this year seems to be a great one for our farm, thanks to favorable weather conditions. But I realize it can’t be that way every year.

    Those carrots that you got in Alaska sound like they were mmm…good!

    Thanks so much for your comment, and hope you’re having a great summer, too!
