A CSA in Queens, NYC. Founded in 2013.

THE HAUL: OCTOBER 20th

  

What’s in the box / The fruit shares continue / Lewis Waite delivery is next week

  • Sweet Potatoes – 4 lbs
  • Broccoli – 2 heads
  • Cilantro – 1 bunch
  • Bok Choi – 1 bunch
  • Watermelon Radish – several pieces

Notes from the GEOF farmhouse kitchen…

IN YOUR BOX…
Sweet Potatoes – We’ve been eating these daily! Try my recipe for sweet potato pie if you want a real treat. Otherwise the easiest way to prepare is to bake in the oven at 350F until soft. Then scoop out the flesh and serve with a little butter and salt. 

Cilantro – We can’t live without cilantro in the house. Galen seeds it outside in our kitchen garden every few weeks so we have a constant supply. If you don’t already know what to do with this bunch, I urge you to try one of the recipes this week. It’s wonderful in soups!

Bok Choi – This is fantastic in stir fries. The whole thing is edible, leaf and stalk! 

Broccoli – For steaming, for soup, for salad! 

Watermelon Radish – Slice one open and you’re in for a surprise! These are great in salads or roasted. Try this week’s recipes.

Bon appetit! – Maggie

WINTER CSA

We’ve now opened up our registration for our Early Winter CSA Program! This program is separate from our 26-week Full Season CSA. It consists of 3 deliveries (spaced 2 or 3 weeks apart) starting in December. The winter share boxes consist of our own CERTIFIED ORGANIC root vegetables and storage crops like Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Watermelon Radish, Carrots, Beets, Rutabaga, Winter Squash, and possibly Broccoli, Kale and Cabbage. Exact contents may change. We also offer a Cider and Apple Share from Briermere Farms that is not organic.
