Week #2 Farmer’s Message

Laura ColeFarmer's Weekly MessageLeave a Comment

Dear CSA Member,
This week you will be getting Mizuna and Arugula.  The Arugula will have some small round holes in the leaves.  An insect called the flea beetle-caused these holes.  We have worked hard to keep them under control by covering the arugula with row cover.  But they still managed to make their way to the plant.  The holes are only cosmetic, and the arugula is perfectly fine to eat.
This is the final week for transplants.  You will be a getting Greek Basil transplant this week.  It is a mini basil plant with small uniform leaves.  This basil is ideal for planting in a pot and is an excellent garnish for any meal.  Basil makes a tasty ingredient in salad dressing. We hope you enjoy the bounty of this weeks share.
Don’t forget the online marketplace is open!  There are great CSA cookbooks (one written by a CSA core group member) along with other local items such as honey, maple syrup, sriracha sauce, dry beans and more!  Check it out!
