- Celery: It’s big and beautiful once again, and this will be the last time in the share for the season so use it in all your favorite ways.
- Corn: Everyone is getting Sugar Buns corn in their share this week! This variety is know to have a smaller ear, with a delicate but not overwhelming sweetness.
- Peppers, Poblano: In general these peppers are relatively mild, but from time to time they take on some heat even in the green stage, so it’s always best to give a taste first.
It’s canning time! Order Bulk Tomatoes from SIO
After several seasons of requests, we finally got our tomato growing act together to offer our CSA membership the opportunity to buy tomatoes in bulk for putting up. We will be offering 20lb flats of our slicing tomatoes for pick-up at the farm only, and will be setting up orders for pick-up this coming weekend (Aug. 22-24) and the following weekend (Aug. 29-31). The New Girl variety that we grow is great for slow roasting and freezing, or canning up as crushed tomatoes. They are are great for making big batches of salsa and tomato sauce.
- $35 for 20lb flat of Red Slicing Tomatoes
To pick-up your order this weekend at the farm please order by 12pm (noon) Thursday 8/21. All orders will be available for pick-up at the farm 12pm (Noon) Friday 8/22 through 5pm Sunday 8/24. To place an order email the farm at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, number of 20lb flats you’d like, and the weekend you want them available for pick-up at the farm (either this weekend 8/22-8/24, or next weekend 8/29-8/31). You will receive an email confirming your order and directions for how to pick-up from the farm. Please invite your non-CSA member friends, neighbors, and co-workers to take advantage of this opportunity and get in on some of the SIO bounty as well.
