This Week’s CSA Box

Veggie Tips 

Cherry Tomatoes:  A treat for your quesadillas and salads – We know that you have had SO many of the heirloom tomatoes this season. 

 

Cucumbers: We are loving our cucumber salads.  All you need to add to the thinly sliced cucumbers is a little salt and pepper.  We are lucky enough to have a little koji on hand – It goes so well with the cucumbers.  

 

Grapes: September is northern California’s peak month for fresh grapes.

 

Sugar Plums: now that you have had the plums in your box for several weeks, you can think about making a plum torte.

 

Chard: Yes, we are celebrating a change in season on the way.  It is still hot and summery here, but the days are shorter and the nights are cool.  The chard is early! See our Recipe of the Week.

 

Melon: The melon season looks like it is on the way out.

 

Tokyo Turnips: Check out our recipe archive for some ideas about our turnips.  The greens are delicious and the roots themselves can be eaten raw – they are very mild. See our Recipe of the Week.
