Week 6 means we are one-third of the way into our delivery season. This week the very first early tomatoes were picked, so it won't be long until they are filling boxes. For now the taste of summer keeps coming with summer squash, green beans, cucumbers and the delightful aroma of basil as you open your CSA box.
In the Box: quart Dragon's Tongue wax beans, bunch red & yellow spring onions, 1 lb carrots, 1/2 lb leeks, big bunch celery, basil, head of broccoli (half shares only), pint snow peas, 4 mixed cucumbers - green and white, heirloom Ronde de Nice summer squash (1 or 2, half & full shares), zucchini, Lodi apples (nice and tart!), 1 lb heirloom snap beans and a small head of green cabbage (not pictured).
|Leeks, as they sit in the ground. The white portion is "blanched by the soil.|
|Our first load of Lodi apples.|
|A bountiful basket of basil.|
|A view of the piglets on pasture, with the native prairie, alfalfa strip and veggie field beyond.|
|Rogue sunflowers add great color to the field!|
