YOUR WEEKLY CSA GUIDE
Sunday - August 22, 2021
We're keeping an eye on the remnants of Henri, please stay tuned to email and social media for possible new information concerning pickup days.
First Tropical Storm Fred and now Hurricane Henri... it's been a rough week trying to seed fall crops, plant seedlings, or just get into the fields for that matter. The soil is saturated and we have more precipitation on the way.
As I write this Henri hasn't made landfall yet and watching the weather forecasts is pretty unnerving. Some reports are saying 3 to 5" and others 5 to 8" depending on how it sets up. Honestly, I can't imagine even getting 3 to 5" with how the soil is right now... my fingers are crossed and we're all hoping for the best.
It's been no surprise weather-wise how this season has gone. We are always talking about the risk vs. reward you have whenever you enroll in a CSA. Well folks, this is pretty risky at the moment. We do EVERYTHING in our power to bring you a well-round share every week but it's been increasingly difficult as the summer progresses. Our promise to you is that we will continue to work hard, keep moving forward, and bring you the best product that we can.

WHAT TO USE FIRST
DID YOU KNOW: Leeks
Leeks have a mild, onion-like taste. In their raw state, the vegetable is crunchy and firm. The edible portions of the leek are the white base of the leaves (above the roots and stem base), the light green parts, and to a lesser extent the dark green parts of the leaves. The dark green leaves can be used in stocks and soups.
