CSA Newsletter, Week 10 - August 3 and 6

1:08 PM Mandy 0 Comments

Halfway through the CSA season, we are wondering how long the extreme heat can persist! Greenhouse zukes, tomatotoes, and peppers are not liking this weather, but some have held their own valiantly. Storage onion and potato harvest is beginning now, as is the main potato harvest. Garlic harvest is nearly 75% finished, and we are racing to get the rest in. People from all around North America are clamoring for Echo seed garlic (seed-garlic.com).

Bike enthusiasts and others interested in local food and adventure should keep their ears perked about the "culinary" bike rides Derek is currently planning to various farm destinations in our area. Echo will be hosting a stop at the farm on September 18th. More details to come, through this newsletter and culinaryride.com.

**We have plenty of basil to spare on the farm, so if you want a special huge bunch for pesto, just email echocsa@gmail.com. Offer good for the next couple of weeks.**

On the table this week:

  • Kale
  • Garlic
  • Onion
  • Zucchini
  • Basil
  • Tomato
  • Beets
  • Carrots
  • Eggplant
  • Cucumber
  • Potatoes
