You-choose CSA – Week 9!

Hey all!

The summer crops are continuing to come in, and new on the list this week includes green peppers, shishito peppers, eggplant, and cherry tomatoes. Cherry tomatoes and eggplant are limited in number as they’re just starting to mature, so please pick a back up option. In a few weeks — fingers crossed — we should have more tomatoes than we know what to do with. There is also red cabbage on the list, and soon we should have fresh basil and hopefully melons aren’t too much further behind. The spring crops are continuing to dwindle, and while the mixed lettuces and arugula are tender and have great flavor right now, many of the mature greens probably won’t last for more than a week or two, and items like Swiss chard have started to get a very strong flavor. They’re still good if you cook them well and season them heavily, but the chard in particular, along with some of the beets, are starting to get bitter, so just please keep that in mind as you plan your weekly meals!
