I know, I know! It seems as if I left the country because I have not been posting on the Blog. But our CSA Members know I have been here all along because their veggie boxes have continued to show up at the pickup sites on time! Truth be told, my Grandson was here for nine days and then my brother came for a short visit. Summertime in WNC!
I trust everyone enjoyed the first red, specialty potatoes. Those were the first potatoes in your boxes. Last week and this week the boxes have Yukon Gold potatoes. It seems to be a good year for potatoes. The sedge is not growing in this patch and spuds love the rain. When you see one that has split, you know it had a rain-induced growth spurt. The same thing can be said for any splits you notice in either the purple or green kohlrabi.
In the box this week look for Yukon Gold potatoes, cabbage, the first cucumbers, green romaine lettuce, patty pan summer squash, green and yellow zucchini, kale, and purple or green kohlrabi.
