Thanks for joining us as we head into our 21st CSA season. We’re excited to bring vegetables into your home and hopefully give you some interesting kitchen experiences. Twenty one years ago, I’ll have to admit, I didn’t even know what all of these vegetables were, much less how to use them. Many of the recipes we share with you have been developed over the years, as we found wonderful and simple ways to eat all of these unfamiliar vegetables. Of course now they are all familiar and have found many ways into our weekly meals (and fields and coolers and lives!). So as you embark on this adventure of eating seasonally out of your CSA box, remember, it may take a while to get the hang of it, but hang in there. And mostly, have fun!

Vegetable harvest this week:

Rhubarb Harvest. Many hands helping to harvest our enormous patch of rhubarb. We have our seasonal Cambodian crew, our full time and part time crew and our worker share crew all getting hot and sweaty Tuesday morning as we pull, haul and cut the rhubarb. Fun fact: this entire patch began as three plants 20 years ago!
