The Greens of Summer

The greens we’re growing this summer are especially well-suited to grow in warm… err… scorching weather, and this means they may be greens you’re accustomed to seeing. In fact, many of you have called and asked what the star-shaped leaf in your CSA box is (sweet potato greens), or what to do with the small but dense bunch of amaranath that you picked up at market.

Ratatouille Lasagna

"Growing up as kids, we didn’t always love all of the delicious summer veggies like zucchini and eggplant, but my mom was so savvy, she would always incorporate them into a pasta dish and we were none the wiser! This is where we got the idea to use lasagna pasta as a starch instead of the traditional potato in Ratatouille."

A Case for Eggplant

For many, eggplant is a big spongy question mark. Like a potato, eggplant can’t really be consumed raw, and perhaps it’s the necessity to cook the thing that makes it feel inaccessible. Or maybe it’s the slight bitterness that turns you off. Of all the vegetables we grow on the farm, eggplant is perhaps the one that’s most often ‘swapped out’ in our CSA program.

In today's post, however, we're making a case for eggplant.
