While our tomatoes and peppers are winding down now, our fall crucifers are coming on with our first harvest of fall Broccoli in your CSA box. Broccoli along with other members of the Cruciferous/Cabbage family, are considered especially healthy for your diet. Even if our former President wasn’t crazy about this item, you can plan wonderful meals around this great vegetable. Over the next couple of weeks we hope to have a sample of all the types of fall crucifer/cabbage we grow for every member.
Growing conditions have been very good and field harvests have been above average. We hope to have an increase in the number of items we normally would pack in the CSA boxes in the weeks to come. As long as the harvests remain good like this week, you’ll see more items than normal for your box. This week’s boxes are a reflection of that. Our good harvests are your gain too.
Be well,
Fred & Karen
