Indian Summer CSA share

Many of our succession plantings that failed to germinate with the drought came up once we had some rain at the end of August, meaning that we're now enjoying summer harvests even though it's late September/ early October. Luckily the warm weather is cooperating even if the days are getting shorter. This is the CSA share we delivered to our members the last week of September. This share offers the last of the yellow summer squash, but the Costata zucchini is still coming, as are the watermelon and muskmelons.

Share list:
  • 1 1/4 lbs. mixed beans
  • oxheart carrots
  • French breakfast radishes
  • onion (ruby ring or New York early)
  • Costata zucchini
  • yellow squash
  • bell pepper
  • Serrano hot peppers
  • Brandywine heirloom slicing tomatoes
  • German red strawberry tomato
  • green zebra tomato
  • bright lights swiss chard
  • red salad bowl lettuce
  • oakleaf lettuce
  • mixed baby greens (kale, simpson, oakleaf, romaine, raab, tatsoi, beet, speckled bibb)
  • strawberry watermelon wedge
  • 1/2 muskmelon (Hale’s best/ old time Tennessee)
  • sorrel
  • basil
  • thyme
  • citrus thyme
  • rosemary
  • tarragon
  • chives
  • parsley

We just joined a fall CSA which starts next week and goes through the end of November. I'm excited to see what we get.
