July 12 CSA boxes
From Gopher Knoll Farm: onions, jalapenos and blueberries
From Highway 19 Produce: Jubilee watermelons, yellow squash, and cherry tomatoes
From Chandler Family Farm: celery, okra, tomatoes and Corn Cob Jelly
This week we wanted to provide the ingredients for fresh salsa and a few special treats. The celery is something new we tried this year and I am happy with how it grew. I know it needs to be larger but I now know what to change for next year. It still has good flavor, use for flavoring stews, stocks or adding to salads like chicken salad. The okra has really started to produce with the summer heat so expect it for the next two weeks. I am happy to share the Corn Cob Jelly with you as well. Use on biscuits, toast, or corn bread. Thomas and I are on vacation today, enjoying a little lake time with some family friends and we just had one of the watermelons-so good. It is mid July and so the heat has taken out most of the gardens but we still have two weeks left of this season and we will deliver. I hope you all have enjoyed this as much as we have. We are still working on Fall season plans but look forward to continuing the Deep Roots CSA and providing more fresh produce to even more local families.
