A CSA in Queens, NYC. Founded in 2013.

The Haul: July 7th

  
What’s in the box  / The fruit shares continue / Lewis Farm delivery TODAY!

  • Carrots – 1 bunch
  • Cucumbers – several pieces
  • Green Cabbage – 1 head
  • Basil – 1 bunch
  • Radicchio – 1 head
  • Zucchini – several pieces
  • Red Leaf or Batavian Lettuce – 1 head
  • Romaine Lettuce – 1 head

Notes from the farm:

Carrots – You’ll be seeing these in your shares for a few more weeks as the farm finishes harvesting this early season planting. Then they’ll be back again in the fall.

Zucchini – A summer-time favorite. Have you tried slicing them lengthwise and putting them on the grill? 

Radicchio – Another week of radicchio – how lucky are we? Grilled wedges and toss them with balsamic, garlic and parmesan. Served room temp, it’s heavenly.

Cabbage – This head of cabbage is begging to be turned into coleslaw. Add some shredded carrots and you’re good to go! See GEOF’s recipe this week.

FRUIT SHARE

Hooray!! The fruit share continues! Please remember to only take fruit if you have already registered, paid and it says “FRUIT” next to your name on the check-in sheet.

KITCHEN TIP!

All of the bagged greens have gone through one wash at the farm, but the farm recommends that you wash them once again at home before eating. To wash greens: (1) Fill a large bowl with cool water. (2) Dump in greens and agitate. (3) Remove greens and spin dry in a salad spinner.  

STORAGE TIPS!

In a bag in the fridge…  Lettuces, Zucchini, Cucumbers, Cabbage, Radicchio, Carrots (remove & discard tops first).

Standing up in a cup of water in the fridge (bouquet-style)…   Basil
