Veggies + Fruit (and Winter Sign-ups!)

Before we get to the list of vegetables, a few CSA announcements: 

  1. Winter sign-ups are open! Check out all the info, and a link to sign up online. Deadline for signing up is Nov 17.
  2. The 50/50 raffle is still going–buy tickets at pick-up. All proceeds benefit our Subsidized Share Program. Basically if you win you get half the raffle cash, and the subsidy gets the other half to help people in our neighborhood access food shares.
  3. The annual CSA Holiday Market will be Thursday, Dec 14th. Register online to reserve a table & join other local businesses (and meet all the CSA community!). We’re really excited about the vendors we have so far.

And, here’s what’s in the box tomorrow, October 26th, at Sunnyside Community Services from 5-8pm. Fruit shares this week are a bag of jonagold and gala apples. Veggies are below:

Sugarloaf Chicory Another one that looks like lettuce, but isn’t! This is closer to the radicchio family. Cut into thin ribbons and dress with olive oil, lemon, garlic, and parmesan to balance the bitterness. Store in the fridge. Use within 5 days.

Scallions – Yep, there are still more for the eating. Store in the fridge. Use within 5 days.

Collards – These are so healthy and similar to kale in versatility. Store the fridge. Use within 5 days.

Sweet Potatoes Get in your Vitamin A and beta-carotene for this week. Don’t wash until your ready to use–the dirt protects their fresh-picked skin! Store on your counter. Use within a week.

Japanese Salad Turnips – They’re back for another round. Don’t forget to eat the tops. Store in the fridge. Use within a week.

Baby Arugula – Wash gently and dress lightly. Store in the fridge. Use within 3 days. 

Cilantro or Parsley – Check your box, it’s a surprise which you’re getting this week. Store in the fridge. Use within 3 days.

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