Veggies, Fruit & Everything Else! (Sept 14th)

Tomorrow we’ve got vegetable shares, fruit shares (apples and pears this week), and all of our special shares too–kombucha, beer, soap and fish. Don’t forget which shares you need to pick up!

All pickups are September 14th at Sunnyside Community Services from 5-8pm.


Acorn Squash – Cook it, eat it, love it–just don’t leave it on your porch as a decoration or you’ll be missing out. Store on the counter. Use within a week.


Cherry & Red Tomatoes – Tomato season has a few more weeks left, so we’ll be rotating these two types until their gone. Store on the counter. Use now.


Leeks – They look like big scallions, and you can eat both the white and green parts. Refrigerate. Use within a week.


Romaine Lettuce – You know what to do with this one. Refrigerate. Use within 5 days.


Cilantro Good in everything from salsa to soups. Refrigerate. Use within 3 days.


Green Long Peppers – Great in stir-fry, and they can freeze easily. Refrigerate. Use within a week.


Eggplant (in rotation) – Patience is a virtue with these guys–their slow growth means harvesting is in stages and CSA locations will get them in different weeks. Refrigerate. Use within a week.

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!

Veggies & Fruit for Aug 24

Have you ever seen an orange watermelon? Get ready, it’s in your veggie share tomorrow. (And another bag of peaches and apples for the fruit shares–let them ripen outside the bag, please.)

All pickups are August 24th at Sunnyside Community Services from 5-8pm.


Orange Watermelon – Give it a try and see how it compares to last week! Store in the fridge. Use now.


Red Tomatoes – This week is beefsteak tomatoes that have been growing since May. Golden Earthworm sent an email how to know when they’re ripe. Store on the counter. Use now.


Sungold Cherry Tomatoes – Great for snacking and salads. Store on the counter. Use now.


Zucchini We’re on to the last planting of these, so enjoy the final harvest. Store in the fridge. Use within a week.


Peppers – These green frying peppers are not spicy. Store in the fridge. Use within a week.


Swiss Chard – This summer green is back and ready to be pan-fried. Store in the fridge. Use within 3 days.


Cabbage One more week of cabbage this summer. Store in the fridge. Use within a week, but if you wrap it well it can last for longer.


Red Batavian Lettuce – Lots of greens this week! Store in the fridge. Use within a week.

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!

In The Box–June 15

Who’s ready for more greens?? Check out what’s in the box this week–and if you’re looking for more info or recipes, Golden Earthworm has some tasty looking ideas here. Everything on this week’s list is best stored in an airtight (plastic) bag in the refrigerator.


The veggie pickup for Thursday, June 15th will be at Sunnyside Community Services from 5-8pm.


Escarole – It looks like lettuce, but it’s not! Escarole a very nutrient-dense vegetable, and can be eaten raw or cooked. When to use: Within 5 days.


Garlic Scapes – This is the top of the garlic plant–remove the head and use the rest as you would garlic. It gives a slightly milder flavor. When to use: Within a week.


Parsley – Don’t write this off as just a garnish–it’s also great in soups, salads and juices! When to use: Within 3 days.


Baby Arugula – This is the next planing, so it’s extremely tender and best eaten raw in a salad. When to use: Within 3 days.


Red Romaine Lettuce – Romain loves the hot weather, and holds up great with heavier toppings. When to use: Within a week.


Toscano Kale – Try this one as kale chips, thrown in a cold smoothie or added to a soup. When to use: Within a week.


Please note that any boxes not picked up by 8pm will be donated to SCS, and items are subject to change.


If you find that your greens have gone “limp,” a tell-tale sign of dehydration, try soaking them in a bowl of cold water for a bit to help them perk back up.
