Hi Folks, welcome to the final week of your Spring/Summer CSA. We hope everyone has enjoyed the last 16 weeks of produce. We have enjoyed getting to know everyone, and we are so grateful for you all! We really hope to have y'all join us again in the fall!
We have the website updated to accept fall CSA members! So please go ahead and secure your spot to join us. We have also added Salad Days lettuce as an add on to your CSA box this fall. If you would like to receive hydroponic lettuce with your weekly box, please add "Lettuce Share" to your cart when checking out.
We have gotten 5+ inches of rain in the last week! It was been great for the plants, but we are looking forward to a break so the ground can dry out enough for us to get our fall tomatoes planted. We are working hard getting plants seeded and everything prepped. I love the fall season, it is my favorite time of the year to grow, harvest, and eat local produce.
Between the heat and our cooler freezing we are having to supplement more items this week including honey from MS Bees Honey in Flora. They have about 40-50 bee hives on our farm. The peaches are from Cherry Creek Orchard in Pontotoc, Ms, they are also our neighbors at the High Street Farmers Market.
Thanks again for helping us have a great season and we look forward to seeing everyone in the fall! Here are the contents of this week's box:
1. Bell Peppers
4. Slicing Cucumbers
5. Shishito Peppers
6. Krimzon Lee Peppers- A large paprika frying pepper. Sweet and spicy thick flesh is choice for roasting, frying, grilling, salsa, and adventurous salads.
7. Corno Di Toro- translates to 'Horn of the Bull'. So juicy and so sweet, this Italian heirloom variety is sure to be a favorite! (bagged with the shishitos to not cause any confusion with the Krimzon Lees.
8. Honey- A bottle of honey from our friends at Mississippi Bees.
9. Peaches- from our friends at Cherry Creek Orchard.
These are great looking recipes all suggested to me by a few CSA members, Enjoy!!
Roasted Spanish Tapas Peppers
This recipe looks really great. Substituted Okra. Here are a few adjustments: regular flour instead of chickpea flour, and she cut the little okras in half and then quartered the larger okras:
