CSA Share: July 30

It’s garlic time! The farm harvested 240 lbs. of garlic this year, which will be divided up among the CSA, local restaurants, the market and seed. CSA members will be getting 1-2 heads of garlic in their shares about once a month from now till the end of the season.

This week is also the first harvest for many of the summer crops. “We aren’t in major abundance just yet, so your share may seem meager at first,” Kristen reports. “However, squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, and eggplant are all big producers at the Red Hook community farm. You’ll be up to your ears in them by late August.”

{This week’s share details — plus messages for fruit and cheese subscribers — after the jump}

Fruit share subscribers:
We are all squared away with making up for the loss of fruit on the first week.

Cheese share subscribers:
Because this is such a high-priced product and a great loss to members who miss a week, the farm is adding some additional cheese pickup times. You can get yours the following week on Tuesday or Thursday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., or on Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Just stop by the farm and ask for Kristen.

This week’s shares will have some of the following. Come pick yours up at the farm on Saturday between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.:

  • Corn
  • Cucumbers
  • Summer squash
  • Cooking greens
  • Eggplant
  • Garlic
  • Tomatillos (get your salsa recipes ready)
  • Radicchio
  • Beets
  • Basil
  • Herbs
