Harvest Highlights: Week 9 CSA News & Updates

by | Aug 22, 2023 | Dee's Corner

It’s Week 9 of our CSA journey, and even the blazing heat can’t deter our fields from producing an abundance of goodness. As you unveil this week’s share, you’ll find a mix of familiar favorites and a delightful newcomer to keep your taste buds intrigued.

I know that when it’s this hot the last thing I want to do is turn on the oven, or even the grill. A lot of the items in this week’s share are perfect for enjoying alfresco-style, with minimal cooking required.  Whether you’re whipping up a fresh coleslaw, indulging in beet and kohlrabi salads, or simply snacking on bell peppers and strawberries, you can keep the heat out of the kitchen and embrace the heat outdoors.

New on the scene this week is green cabbage. Its sturdy leaves are a canvas for creativity – roll them up for cabbage wraps, ferment them for sauerkraut, or shred them into a crunchy side dish.  The Cabbage-Kohlrabi Slaw is a family recipe shared by a long-time member and is a delicious, refreshing way to use the cabbage and kohlrabi in this weeks share.  For more recipe ideas click on any of the images in the ‘What to Expect in Your Share Box’ and scroll to the bottom of the webpage.  There you will find another recipe, Sunday Supper Runzas, that was a favorite of Dee and her family, as it was easy to prepare in advance and take on camping trips!

Did you miss the sweet corn pick, or perhaps you’re thinking you might need a few more dozen to stock the freezer for winter?  Harvest Event shares of Sweet Corn will be available to pickup at Pahl’s Market starting Thursday, August 24th and will continue through Wednesday, August 30th.   Stay tuned for an email tomorrow with details on how to order.

As the temperature continues to soar, we hope you’re finding creative ways to beat the heat while enjoying the bounties of our CSA.  Cooler days are on the horizon, bringing with them the promise of fall harvest delights like apples and squash.  Mark your calendars! We’re thrilled to announce that our Apple Pick event will take place on October 14th and 15th.  It’s an opportunity for you to immerse yourself in the crisp air, beautiful orchard, and the joy of harvesting your own apples. So, save the date and stay tuned for more details.

Stay hydrated, stay shaded, and savor every bite of this week’s share!
