What’s in the basket? CSA August 2010

In this week’s share: June 25th, 2009

strawberry harvest
Summer harvest is going strong! This week you’ll get:
  • “Parris Island” lettuce

    Parris Island is a crunchy Romaine leaf, and is great in a classic Caesar salad.
    The Red Butter Head is a wonderful Amish heirloom plant with a good buttery

    flavor. Try it with a citrusy vinaigrette dressing and sharp flavored cheese!

  • “Red Butter Head Speckle” lettuce
  • “Albion” and “Seascape” strawberries
  • “Slice” cucumbers

Farm notes:

We just harvested a huge crop of culinary lavender! It is included in the CSA farm share and available for purchase at the store on XX/XX.

Lavender isn’t just for soap and candles—it is a fantastic complement to drinks,
desserts, and entrees! Here is a lavender lemonade recipe to get you started.
