What's in a Share?
Vegetables in the wintertime are actually some of the sweetest around, especially the greens. Because the plants experience frost and cold, they concentrate their sugars in order to withstand freezing. Many other winter staples like butternut squash, potatoes, carrots, beets, and other root crops actually are grown in the late summer and harvested in fall for storage all winter. They are wholesome and can be made into substantial heart-warming meals.
It is our goal for the winter CSA to offer as much variety as possible. Each week, we aim to bring you fresh greens like kale, spinach, bok choy, arugula, and lettuce plus an offering of hearty root vegetables. Keep in mind though, as with all farming, winter weather can pose challenges to our harvest timeline and expectations.
Here’s an estimated sample list of our seasonal harvest:
Arugula, Baby kale, beets, bok choi, butternut squash, carrots, celeriac, purple cabbage, napa cabbage,
daikon radish, kale, lettuce mix, lettuce, pea shoots, potatoes, purple top turnips, rutabagas, shallots, spinach,
sweet potatoes, tatsoi (Asian green), yokatta-na (Asian green), watermelon radish
