CSA SPRING SHARE WEEK #6
We have started harvesting zucchini!! The days are getting longer, the nights a bit warmer...Summer must be coming!
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.

NOTES ON WHAT IS GROWING
We have started harvesting Zucchini! We are growing four varieties of Zucchini and Summer Squash and will rotate these through the boxes. The harvest for the first few weeks is light and then the plants really get going. We have written down who received Zucchini this week and will ensure what we have gets rotated. We originally planted 200 feet of zucchini but when it started to get attached by the red legged earth mite, we added another 100 feet. We are thankful we did as that late added row is the strongest in this planting!
