Winni Woods Farm CSA Week #9

Posted 8/7/2019 6:11pm by Aaron Lichtenberg.

Hello Farm Faithful,

The start of the week was filled with perfect weather, which we are always thankful for. While the day length is notably shortening, our working hours seem to be ever-expanding! Harvest continues to be plentiful, with this week's gorgeous display being the glowing radishes...sometimes things are just too beautiful to not take the time to stop and take a photo.

In the world of flowers, we are hosting our second Flower Workshop of the season next week which is sold out already, sorry! It is so wonderful to see how many people are sharing in the local flower love. We had our first major harvest of lisianthus and the colors are just stunning.

While harvesting jalapenos this week, I couldn't help but think of Jalapeno Poppers. Back in the day when we used to entertain occaisionally, we made enormous batches of these babies and froze them. Then, when we needed them, we could just pull them out, bake them off, and voila, a tasty (and fun!) appetizer. Check out our recipe in the Recipe Bank online under Jalapenos/Hot Peppers.

And, I must be hungry right now, because all kinds of recipe recommendations are popping in my head. Here is one that sounded good...And now that it is tomato season, I cannot forget to share our favorite quick summer treat - Tomato Basil "Salsa". While our basil took an early nose dive this year (sorry!), maybe you have some hanging around on your deck?! Also, sorry for no "choice" in your share this week...we had a few crops run together in abundance, we hope you like them! (Please let us know if you need to swap anything you just absolutely don't like though! ;) In your share this week (subject to availability):
