CSA: Week 16

What a great delivery we have this week! I’m always so excited to share good news and new items with you. First things first… The laying hens kicked it up a notch despite the heat and everyone in the Egg CSA will be receiving eggs this week – Both Thursday and Saturday deliveries. And in the Veggie boxes – Melons have finally arrived! Everyone in the veggie CSA should be receiving a Sugar Baby Watermelon this week. We have more melons and cantaloupes on the way too, as well as winter squashes.

You’ve heard me explain how the heat and drought are causing a slowing of growth in the fields. Well, that may be the case for the vegetables at White Oak Pastures, but not the Black Soldier flies! In the next posting, I’ll share some pictures and the story behind this fascinating indigenous insect that we use as a protein-packed feed source for our birds out on pasture.

And while it’s difficult to segue from Soldier flies to dinner, that’s exactly what we’re doing. Here’s what’s on tap this week… Happy eating!

    Grilled marinated eggplant and red onions with sliced tomatoes and basil (all from the farm this week) on a bun with barbeque rubbed grilled okra and watermelon, mint and feta salad…an amazing Friday night grill! Thanks Tripp!
