What's In Season - Weekly Newsletter #6


This week: Order by Noon Tuesday for Wednesday delivery or pickup.


MONDAY, AUGUST 29th, 2022


We have lots new on the farm and in The Market this week, so I'm just going to dive right in!

Frankly, we have more new items than I have time to name! Some of the favorites are our colorful Winter Mini-Daikon Radishes, Honey Select Yellow Corn, Beefsteak Tomatoes, Shishito "Roulette" Peppers, and Red Norland New Potatoes. In fruit, we'll be picking up Nectarines, Apricots, Honey Crisps and Zestar Apples in addition to Red Haven Peaches, Plums, Pears, and Blueberries!

Our next bean patch is a wonder: we have a fantastic variety of Italian beans called "Kentucky Wonder--super tender & flavorful! Our Tri-Color Bean Mix is also back in both baby french filet size and regular full-size, while our first Fresh Shelling Beans, Dragon Tongue, are ready as well.

With all of this bounty, it's no wonder we're scrambling to get everything harvested in time! But, 'tis the season!

We have at least 14 weeks left to the season, so, if you haven't already, you're still welcome to become a Market Subscriber. Signing up will grant you access to our choose-your-own box for the entire season, including any extra weeks at the end of the year. If you're looking to choose what goes in your box and expect to order only a handful of times this season, try out our Trial Subscription...it's only $180 and you get $180 back in Market Credit to spend as you please.

Please note that there was a small change on the online market site this past weekend. I'm still trying (in my spare time;) to make the process as easy, clear and streamlined as possible, so I switched around some buttons on the Welcome Page and merged the two "Weekly Box Choice" pages into one. I realize the less navigating you have to do, the better. So, hopefully, the changes help rather than drive you nuts!



Thanks so much!


All the best,

The Centgraf Family

RECIPE OF THE WEEK

The best recipes are often the simplest! And during peak season, a dish that takes less than 10 minutes is a blessing! I love this rendition as it calls for a light panko bread crumb topping, fresh herbed olive oil and the tiniest bit of garlic.

Try it out on our Yellow Crookneck Summer Squash (or Patty pans, or Zucchini Mix.) We pick our squash on the small side...it's better for the plants and tastier, so you'll likely need more than just three squash!
