HighCross Farm Summer CSA Season

It's that time of year again!  I picked up my first CSA box of the season on the way home from work this evening.  This is my third summer as a CSA member of HighCross Farm, and my excitement has not diminished over the years.

Today's box contained:
  • Lettuce
  • Spinach
  • Baby Pac Choi
  • Yukina
  • Green Garlic
  • Radishes
  • Oregano

Each week, we get an online newsletter with lots of great information.  For example, here are the storage tips for this week's box:

"All of the items in today’s share should be kept in the coldest area of your refrigerator, ideally on the lower level or in the crisper drawer. Place in plastic bags or wrap in a damp towel, to prevent wilting due to the dehydrating effect of refrigeration. Monitor the produce over time; it should be kept neither too wet nor too dry inside the plastic bag. Slightly open the bag, especially if you see water droplets forming on the inside."

I also learned from the newsletter that summer shares are still available.  So if you've been thinking about becoming a CSA member, I highly recommend taking a look at HighCross Farm!
