Week 2 of the CSA! Our crew is back in the CSA rhythm and excited to bring you more delicious produce. Thanks to some super star volunteers we have an educational video for you about how to take care of the producing coming in your shares. Experienced CSA members and newbies alike will benefit from watching the video above!
Things are moving fast here at the farm, the hustle intensifies in hot weather as both crops and weeds develop quickly and need attention. On a related note: that’s why there are three heads of lettuce in your share this week!
In your share this week:
Broccoli – Head Lettuce – Oregano – Pac Choi – Potatoes – Radishes – Spinach
This share includes the last of the 2021 potatoes. This is very late to store potatoes, so please keep them in the refrigerator and use them quickly. If your potatoes sprout you can still break off the sprouts and use the potato as usual. You’ll have potatoes in your box again in August when our first crop of “new” potatoes is ready.
6 medium potatoes, cubed (3 pounds)
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (~2 1/2 lemons)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
11/2 tablespoon fresh oregano
2 garlic gloves, minced
3 cups hot water
chopped fresh parsley
- Preheat oven to 475 degrees.
- Toss together potatoes, lemon juice, salt, pepper, oregano and garlic in a deep flat pan about 8 x 12 inches. Add water to the pan.
- Bake for 1 1/2 hours at 475. Stir every 20 minutes adding more if needed to prevent sticking. Be careful not to burn in the last 30 minutes of cooking. During the final 15 to 20 minutes, allow water to evaporate.
- Garnish with fresh parsley and serve.
