This week, the crops are recovering from the frost. The peppers, eggplant, and tomatoes have all been harvested. We will continue to have green tomatoes and sweet peppers in the CSA for at least this week – be sure to check out the Recipes tab on our website to find out what to do with those! Also in the CSA this week are different colored broccoli and cauliflower. Brassica species like broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage love the cold! When there’s a freeze, those vegetables get sweeter and tastier!
The other upside of a freeze is that the plants that didn’t survive have now been broken down and will make beautiful soil in which new plants will grow! The farm is in a constant state of renewal!
