Big and Sweet Onions

[ 2015 CSA Week 12 ]

We have been busy bees around the farm the past few weeks.

The next high tunnel project has begun and we have startedaround 3,000 seedlings of spinach, kale, chard and lettuce to go in the two tunnels for overwintering.  

Madeline did some heroic weeding of the leeks, which now uncovered look to be the best leek crop in our history of farming. We are excited to be offering them this fall.

We started to harvest the onions for this week's share. Ailsa Craig Exhibition onions are large and sweet. It is one of our go-to varieties so returning members will recognize them from past years. The variety dates back to 1887 and came from Scotland. These can be used any way you can think of, but are delicious caramelized, raw, sliced for burgers or turned into onion rings.

Enjoy this heat of summer now, I hear the farmer's almanac is calling for a snow filled winter with cold temps!

Interested in making a batch of pesto or pickles? There are bulk items for sale. We have cucumbers for pickling, basil and garlic for pesto, tomato and pepper seconds for roasting. Email us and let us know what you need and when you would like it.

Flowers and Maple Syrup will be for Sale.
