CSA Week 7
This week's CSA share included 2 summer squash, one zucchini, carrots, kale, 5 small lettuce heads, peppermint, spearmint, parsley, cilantro, chard, beets, dill, and red raspberries. Julie from MHOF says that fortunately they do not see any sign of late blight at the farm and the tomatoes and potatoes (plus beans, leeks, onions, and cukes) are all looking good. The hot weather crops are behind for everyone I know in the area, but hopefully the recent heatwave will help these crops along.
On a separate note, I am thinking about freezing the kale from the past 2 weeks. We are a bit inundated with leaves at the moment and it is becoming hard to come up with meal variation to use them all. I hate for food to go to waste and the frozen kale could be used in a stir fry in the winter.
