Howdy folks and welcome to week three of your Tumbleweed CSA share. We hope you've all been enjoying your vegetables so far and are excited for this week's haul. Today we're stoked to have our first harvest of carrots and garlic scapes. The carrots are sweet and tender and taste great eaten straight up or simply drizzled with oil and thrown onto the grill (greens and all!). The garlic scapes are treated like royalty around these parts. Their season is short so enjoy them while we've got 'em! They're similar in flavor to the green garlic but with a more pungent garlic flavor. They're lovely diced up and tossed into salads, thrown onto the grill (whole) or added to salad dressings, pestos, or yogurt dips.
As far as the report from the field-- I'd say no news is good news!! We're in the thick of planting late summer and early fall crops and continue to prep new sections of the farm for those late season veggies. The weeds continue to grow almost as fast as the plants so we're spending all day every Wednesday weeding with the crew (weeding Wednesdays has a nice sound to it right?) It's been fun harvesting for local restauruants and the farmers market is always a nice change of pace from being up at the farm. Thanks for everyone who's stopped by and said hi at the Hood River market on Saturday's. If you find yourself down in the neighborhood it's a great place to head to grab all the other essentials for getting through the week. Eggs, meat, dairy, fermented foods, baked goods, Kombucha and more!
Anyhow we hope you all had a restful weekend and are ready for this weeks haul! Happy cooking!
