CSA Autumn Share 2014 - Week #12 (18 June/20-21 June)


TWELVE WEEK OF THE AUTUMN SHARE Next week is our final CSA box for this season.  Please leave a cardboard box or esky out for your vegetables.  No crate will be left.  We also ask that you ensure all crates are left for collection - Thank you!

NOTES ON STORING THE HARVEST Please check out our Vegetable & Fruit page on the website to find tips on maximizing the life of your veggies.  We envisage that many of the vegetables you are receiving this week will last for two weeks with careful attention to storing upon arrival. Although we do wash all the greens after harvest, we are washing to take the heat out of the plants and wash away some surface dirt, not to prepare them for consumption.  We also spray a seaweed/herb brew about every ten days.  While this will not harm you, it does have a taste. We do suggest washing your produce prior to eating.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX The following are the items harvested this week.  Items and quantities in your box may vary depending on your harvest day and the total harvest of each crop.  The boxes are completely governed by what is ripe and ready for harvest and how much of it there is.  We endeavor to divide the harvest fairly.

1/4 share: 5-7 items   1/2 share: 8-10 items   Full Share: 10-12 items

Broccoli Cabbage Carrots Kale Onions Parsley Potatoes Pumpkin Baby Silver Beet Turnips

Extras Broccoli Cauliflower Lettuce Radish Peas

RECIPE SUGGESTIONS Hearty Winter Stew Slow Cooked Kale Omelettes Warm Kale Salad with Roasted Pumpkin - This recipe would work well too over the baby silver beet.
