Jupiter Ridge 2019 CSA | Week 11

Share This

Greetings CSA Members!

We’re wondering if you’re asking the same question we’ve been asking this weather: is it fall yet? Or is it still summer?!

If so, we’re just as confused as you are. It’s been cool and rainy for a good stretch of days, but summer isn’t going quietly – we’re still getting 80 degree days and bright sunshine (October beach time plans, anyone?)!

Anyways, this week’s share will be full of a dazzling array of goodies, very much embodying the weird late summer/early fall season we happen to be stuck in – not that we’re complaining. This lineup of veggies looks pretty good to us, and we hope it looks good to you!!!!

What to expect this week:

  • Collard Greens New!
  • Bunched Spinach New!
  • Tomatoes (Slicers, Heirlooms, Cherries, or Mix)
  • Sweet Dumpling Squash New! (Very Sweet Squash!)
  • Potato Medley (Purple, White, Red, Fingerling)
  • Cabbage
  • Garlic
  • Parsley Bunch
  • Sweet Onion
  • Red Onion

…plus, once in a while, we include some extra surprise items in your share that aren’t listed last minute (we’re sure you’ve noticed!).

As you can see, we have some new produce for you to try mixed with some familiar staples and favorites. Since we don’t have anything TOO exotic or new that we’re sharing with you this week, we don’t have an explanation/tips section (and skipping our wellness section so we can stay on top of some stuff today up at the farm…but it will be back soon, don’t worry).

However….

…if you DO have questions about your share, don’t hesitate to contact us with your inquiries or ideas! We love to hear from you.

Collard Bunches
Collard greens! Use them much like kale as a cooked green (same health benefits, too). Its flavor makes a killer combo with anything pork-related: tenderloin, bacon, ham, you name it.
