August 25th CSA Harvest & Pick-Up

There have been a few different varieties of garlic in the CSA boxes (Chesnock Red, Leningrad, Persian Star, Russian Red). Each variety has unique characteristics that influence their culinary use. For example, Leningrad is quite spicy, great in stir fries and stews but a bit overwhelming when simply roasted and eaten right away. Here is a link to our garlic profiles with more of the specifics.

REMINDER: no pick-up next week due to long weekend, see you on September 8th.

And the list:

August 18th CSA Harvest & Pick-Up

Some nice shots by Cam in the gardens and at the pick-up site today. One thing you might have noticed in our postings is the many one-of-a-kind articles of ICF swag. We make them all by hand. If you want one, bring a t-shirt/work-shirt/dress shirt to the Marche St George on a Sunday and we'll hook you up.

4 years old, still crisp!

Sungold tomatoes! We can't wait to start getting these beauties into the hands of our shareholders. They're just starting to ripen on our plants and if the weather holds, we expect to be filling boots for a while...

See y'all on Sunday.
