Share Contents for 1997 Season

Listed below you will find the contents of ONE SHARE for each week we received vegetables in 1997. Please remember that the summer of 1997 had the worst drought in New England in many years. This means that in normal years, the share contents are likely to be even LARGER! Each farm will grow different produce, but this gives you an idea of what is possible. If nothing else can convince you to join a CSA, I think this list will do it!

Here's a recipe that Sue at the farm suggested:
Potato Salad with Beets & Greens
  1. Boil potatoes (they cook quick) and set aside.
  2. Saute onions & garlic in olive oil; add beet roots, coarsely chopped.
  3. Add stems & greens when roots are tender.
  4. Add vinegar, basil, salt, and pepper to taste.
  5. Serve on potatoes warm or cold.

Fennel is good raw in lettuce and potato salads. Add to sautes & stir fries.

Swiss Chard Pizza

  1. Saute chard with onions, garlic, and hot pepper.
  2. Mix in some ricotta and romano (or parmesan) cheese.
  3. Put on top of partially baked pizza crust along with tomatoes.
  4. Bake until crust is done.
This is also good on pasta, pita, bread, etc.

This was our nineteenth week of vegetables. Unfortunately, I was in a hurry when I picked up my share, and did not write
down what we got. Sorry! You'll have to look at the weeks before and after to get a general idea.

I'm sorry to disappoint you all, my loyal readers, but I was on vacation this week (visiting my excellent buddies in California, of
all places!) and I missed getting my veggies! Please come back for the update next week.
