Week Two, What To Do With Rapini, and More Farm News...

Posted 6/12/2018 11:11am by Michael Scheidel.
Hey good folks,
 
CSA
 
Week two for our 2018 CSA! If you order online and forgot to order this week, DON'T WORRY. You will still get a "farmer's choice" share this week. Farm pick up today from 4-6 and Saturday from 9-12. Woo drop off tomorrow after 10, pick up at the Hershey Farmer's Market 2:30-6:30 Thursday, and Healthy Habit's pick up Friday after 10.
Remember that the first two weeks or so of CSA includes a LOT of greens but that is about to change next week. Here's what you can expect to see next week: broccoli, beets, basil, bouquets, peas, spring onions and more. Stay tuned for more farm news!



What To Do With Broccoli Raab/Rapini

Really LOVE growing and eating Broccoli Raab/Rapini.  This is a tall green with a small broccoli-like florette at the tip.  It is a fantastic side dish and is a VERY short season crop...probably only another week or two! Here's how I cooked it at our Troops of St. George campout this weekend:

-chop plant from tender stalk all the way up to the tip

-chop a couple of garlic cloves, spring onion

-heat a flat top or pan and add olive oil with garlic/onions

-before garlic browns, add chopped raab and stir until wilted

-sprinkle parmesan cheese on top

Eat, smile, and repeat for next meal!

Even if you over cook it, it's absolutely delicious.

More Farm News

Weather certainly has been a challenge but overall, we're doing ok.  All heirloom tomatoes are planted, staked and trellised in the high tunnel as are cucumbers.  Sweet and hot peppers and eggplant are out in the field, sweet corn is really greening up, and potatoes look great.  Hope you are all enjoying the early summer!

Gratefully Growing!
