2013 Season, week 7

June 29, 2013

This week's harvest:
"Indy Gold" Yellow Beans
Yellow Summer Squash
Baby Onions
Hot Peppers
Elephant Garlic
Swiss Chard - free choice

This week's farm news:

First of all, I'd like to say a word about the elephant garlic that is in your CSA baskets this week: we've been saving this seed for several years now and this is the first time we've had enough to give all of you. However... even though it is impressive to look at because of its size, we are undecided about continuing to grow it because we are not sold on the flavor - which is much more like an onion than garlic - since in all of our taste tests it gives a slightly bitter aftertaste. The most appealing way we've prepared it is roasted and then mashed with olive oil & salt (served on toast). So, we want your input! Please tell us how you prepare yours and if you like it or not. We don't really want to grow a crop that isn't good to eat! If you give it a thumbs up, we'll keep on growing it! Have a fabulous week and enjoy this week's harvest!
