Look for Purple Majesty potatoes in the CSA boxes this week. These antioxidant-rich potatoes are purple on the inside and out.
Please note that the garlic has already been divided into cloves this week. It has been cured, but the rainy weather has negatively impacted the durability of the garlic requiring that it been broken up to salvage.
This week’s box includes:
Rattlesnake Pole Beans
Summer greens (Purslane, Dandelion, and Nasturtiums)
June 21st, officially the first day of summer. We are halfway through the year and full of cheer! Why? Because the CSA box this week is bursting at the seams with flavor and potential. The variety of basil can take you around the world and back to your home kitchen. So lets talk about what’s in the box…

Dill with leaf and flower
Feher Ozon Peppers
Rattlesnake pole beans
Summer & winter squash
Summer greens: nasturtium, garnet stem dandelion, golden purslane
The radicchio grown on the farm has a bitter and loud taste, pair it with a hot cooking method like grilling to mellow the palate. Top with a balsamic vinaigrette for a solid match of tart sweetness.
1 radicchio head, cut in half, lengthwise through the core
1 T shallot, minced
2 T red wine vinegar
1 T balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper
If you are unable to use an out door grill, the oven or a cast iron surface works just as well. Brush the grill surface with oil and allow to heat, about 10 minutes. Rub the radicchio halves with olive oil, grill until tender and seared. remove greens from heat and drizzle with vinaigrette. Enjoy!
