Spring CSA – Week of April 27


CSA Share notes for A Route members:

Potato Notes: Please store the red potatoes from Blue Goose Farm in the refrigerator. They may begin to sprout because they have not been sprayed or “gassed” to prevent sprouting like grocery store potatoes often are.

Kale Notes: You may notice that the kale has tender flowering tops on them. Fear not, they’re safe to eat and quite delicious. This article gives the rundown on what they are and how to prepare them. 

“When you think of how that hardy kale plant has been producing its super nutritious (and super popular) leaves all soggy winter long, it’s especially remarkable (maybe even miraculous) that the tiny little yellow blossoms that show up in early spring are so sweet. Raab is a tangible, edible sign that not only has the kale (or broccoli or what have you) “overwintered” and survived into spring, but so have we.”

Summer Harvest CSA Share sign ups are open!
