2018 Week 44, Summer CSA Pick-up 22 of 26
If you did not hear at the last distribution, we have honey available from the bees this year. For all who put their name on the list, but did not pay — and for those who did not hear, but now want a jar — you may come with $10/jar, cash, and I can place your order with our beekeeper, Adam. A jar is 16oz. of raw, straight from the farm honey. How exciting! Perfect with the dried winter tea, or on bread with butter. Mmmmm … Once I have all the logistics nailed-down with Adam, this will be a regular part of the CSA. For now, though, it is an add-on. Thanks for understanding.
There is more ginger, turmeric, and lemongrass to freeze, if you are into that. Most will start to go bad in the next week or so, so grab it while you can. Lemongrass bulb freezes really well when cut into small discs. Just sprinkle a handful of those, frozen, into your next Thai meal at cooking, and it will be just like the fresh thing.
A quick note this week, but I think mostly because this season leaves me dumbstruck. A quote, then — "It is easier to include the universe in a word than in a sentence" — for a word like ‘Autumn.’
See you on the farm,
