We have added cauliflower and romanesco to the availability list for this week. Romanesco is one of my favorite fall veggies. It grows in a fractal pattern, and when you cut it off of the stem it breaks apart into roughly even sized pieces. I like to roast it with olive oil, salt, and pepper as a simple... read more »

We have the first of our fall popcorn available this week! Making our own popcorn has always been a favorite snack in our family.

It seems like every year we are surprised by September.

Welcome to week 14 of the CSA season! While we still have several weeks left of tomato and pepper season, now is a great time to think about saving a couple of items for the winter. Peppers are super easy to freeze for the winter - just slice or chop cleaned peppers and toss them in a zip top bag and... read more »

Huitlacoche, or corn smut, is considered a delicacy in Mexican cuisine but it is also the bane of sweet corn aficionados everywhere.

Looking for a new idea for watermelon as we get close to the end of melon season? We like making a sweet and savory watermelon salad as a cool, refreshing side dish. We toss chunks of watermelon with mint, feta, and balsamic vinegar and add salt and pepper to taste. The salad is very adaptable - you... read more »
