CSA Share: Sept. 22

Fall is officially here! This past week has been beautiful on the farm, and most of the crops are really enjoying a break from the heat. We’re finishing up our seeding for the season, which is a little sad but also sort of exciting to be able to focus more on caring for and harvesting all the things in the ground.

New this week is the edamame. You will be getting whole plants, which is a little bit of work to get to the beans, but SO worth it! Soy beans are one of the most useful crops. There are any number of things you can do with them in the kitchen, but I have to say they are quite delicious fresh and raw straight out of the pod.

Some other things you may find in this week’s share: eggplant, the last of the summer squash, peppers, tomatoes, broccoli rabe, sorrel, mustard greens, kale, chard, collards, arugula, mizuna, and/or beans.

Hope you are all enjoying these lovely days,
-Shayna
