Summer CSA week 5

Howdy Folks,

It is week five(odd week) of the summer share. The crops are really cranking on the farm right now. Transplant, weed, harvest, repeat. The weather has really been idyllic. After the many challenges of last years drought it is so satisfying to look out on the fields and witness so much abundance. The cucumbers have really hit their stride this week. You will be getting 4 pounds! Salad season is definitely upon us. We are also flush with lettuce this week as we have several plantings that have matured at the same time.

I'd like to give a shout out for broccoli raab. It's related to the mustards and spicy greens that we grow. It is fantastic sautéed with garlic (also in the share) and spread on pizza. It also pairs well with Powisset Italian sausage.

In your share this week:

Lettuce (3 heads, it's salad season!)
Summer Squash and Zucchini
Napa Cabbage
Bok Choi (
Broccoli Raab
Fresh Garlic
Choice of Cooking Green
pollinators abound at Powisset
If you have grown weary of bok choi and aren't quite sure of what to do with four pounds of cucumbers here is a recipe that will help you use both:

The flower garden is beginning to fill in and in the coming weeks we will have flowers available as part of your share. This week, flowers are available for purchase by the bloom. Clippers are available at the farm stand.

Zannah, your farmer on behalf of the crew
