Our first CSA box delivery was a great success. If you are one of our member families thank you for coming out on this rather warm afternoon. We hope you enjoy this week’s harvest. If you’re not yet a member we still have a few spots remaining. READ ON to see what went into this week’s box…
Here’s what went into this week’s Tule Peak Farm vegetable CSA box
Tule Peak Tricolour Eggs (one dozen) – Our happy hens lay some fantastic eggs. With bright yolks and firm whites, these eggs are sure to impress.
Salad Mix – lettuce, baby kale, mizuna, and tatsoi
Arugula – full grown but incredibly tender
Red Russian Kale – This was grown by our friends at Sage Mountain Farm in Anza, California. These leaves are perfect for a quick saute or a gentle braise.
Genovese Basil – The leaves are tender enough to be used as a salad green.
Baby Beet Greens – We refer to this as “summer spinach”. Tender and sweet enough to be eaten in a salad, these are nothing like the greens attached to beetroot.
French Breakfast and Cherry Belle Radishes – A vibrant red skin and a snow-white flesh make these attractive options for appetizers and as additions to salads.
Summer Squash – Yellow crooknecks that are extremely abundant!
Sungold Cherry Tomatoes – These sweet yellow jewels came from our friends at Sage Mountain Farm in Anza, California.
Slicing Cucumbers – Sumter and Marketmore are dependable varieties that exude the fresh aroma of cucumbers whenever they are sliced.
See you next week and stay tuned for a Tule Peak Recipe!
