Sept 20th Pickup: Veg, Fruit & Lewis Waite

We’re getting into the fall food season: acorn squash and more yummy items in the box. Plus this week is Lewis Waite pickups–if you haven’t ordered yet, check out what they offer!

To see complete info for vegetables in the box this week, check out Golden Earthworm’s weekly newsletter. They also have info up there about a special CSA day on their farm on Sunday, October 14th.

The list below is most of what will be in the box this week, but items are subject to change. Pickups are from 5-8pm at Sunnyside Community Services this Thursday.

The fruit share this week includes Gala apples and nectarines.

For vegetables:

Baby Arugula – This is super baby sized, and appropriately tender–don’t overdress it. Store in a container in the fridge, use within 3 days.

Parsley – Soups just aren’t the same without chopped parsley, and if you don’t have plans for it this week, you can always freeze for later. Store in a container in the fridge, use within 3 days.

Green Cabbage – It’s a great time of year for stuffed cabbage recipes. Also great in soup, chopped in coleslaw salads or just eaten in wedges for snacks. Store in a container in the fridge, use within 10 days.

Acorn Squash – To allow some of their NY farmland a rest, Golden Earthworm is partnering with another Certified Organic producer in Massachusetts to bring us these lovely squash. Store on the counter, use within 5 days.

Red Tomato – Tomatoes are on the decline now, but you can expect to see them a few more times, so enjoy! Store on the counter, use when they are a deep red.

Romaine Lettuce – Crunchy and flavorful for salads. Store in a container in the fridge, use within 3 days.

Please note that any boxes not picked up by 8pm will be donated to SCS. Look for Golden Earthworm Organic Farm CSA on Facebook for more recipes from members!
