YOUR WEEKLY CSA GUIDE
Forkful: August 2021 - Week 12
Monday - August 16, 2021
Looks like thunderstorms through the end of the week, be sure to have an umbrella handy folks!
Seeding fall spinach and beets with the MaterMacc Planter
It's hard to believe fall is just a little over a month away. Pretty soon we'll be talking about pumpkins, straw bales, cornstalks, and winter squash. Speaking of winter squash you'll have spaghetti squash in your shares this week. It's an incredibly early harvest and a nice little sneak peek and taste of fall.
We seeded spinach and beets last week and luckily it rained just in time. The crew and I started the process to setup irrigation to make sure there was enough moisture for those seeds to germinate. It's funny, that's always the way... setup irrigation and it rains. Oh well, we're just glad it did!
Tomatoes and peppers are finally beginning to produce and we're harvesting by the buckets. Our wash pack area is absolutely full right now. Look for another round of canning tomatoes in a 20lb box coming soon!

WHAT TO USE FIRST
DID YOU KNOW: GARLIC
The shelf life of garlic can go as long as a year or as short as a few days depending on how you store it. A properly stored whole bulb of garlic can last up to three to five months in the pantry. Once the bulb is broken, you can expect the quality of your garlic to decrease rather quickly. Individual unpeeled garlic cloves can last for seven to ten days in the pantry.
