What’s In The Box?

Good afternoon!

This is the third week of our Fall 2015 CSA here at the Student Farm and there’s lots of great stuff! If you’re already a member, come on down and pick up this week’s bounty. If you’re not yet set up to enjoy our weekly harvest, you can get signed up for next week, and we’ll make a box up, just for you!

In the box this week:

  • Shishito Peppers
  • Kale, 3 different types!
  • Collards
  • Bok Choy
  • Eggplant
  • Salad mix
  • Hot peppers, Jalapeno and Black Hungarian
  • Radishes, assorted varieties
  • Garlic
  • Turnips
  • Sweet potato greens

Now, you’ll notice that we’ve thrown a bunch of classics in there, but you may just be wondering how you’re gonna utilize those Sweet potato greens?

Luckily for you, I’ve done the research.  Check out this article in Prevention magazine, that espouses the amazing, and hitherto unknown (in the US) health benefits of these amazing greens!

*Personally, I like mine sautéed with olive oil and maple syrup.  Yum.*

Happy Harvest,

Jonathan Cole
