Cabbage, Cauliflower, Broccoli

A point of clarification–You can buy extra Cabbage, or Cauliflower, or Broccoli at Pick Up Day on Thursday, by sending an email to have it delivered with your Share on the delivery routes Friday, or at Farmer’s Market on Saturday morning.  Each share this week has a head of Broccoli and a head of Cauliflower–some have Cabbage.

Prices are $1.50 per head for Broccoli or Cauliflower…priced to MOVE–regular price is $2.15/# for Broccoli and $2.40/# for Cauliflower

Cabbage is $.90/lb. They weigh 3-1/2 to 5 lbs a head.  We also have Red Cabbage at $1./#

Please note: We can take the exact amount in cash or a check on the delivery routes–no way to make change.

!~Oh! and one more thing…

Thursday Half/Full Shares will have a head of Cabbage, and North Route and Farmer’s Market Shares will have Eggplant…if more is ready…if not they will have cabbage, too. Next week the entire Thursday group, not just the Half/Full’s, will have Eggplant.  (I may have some left-over Eggplant at Farmer’s Market on Saturday, too.)

I gave you a great recipe for Eggplant Hummus (Baba Ganosh–#44), but I also have some great recipes for fresh cabbage.

Try the Cole Slaw–milk-less and SIMPLE…you have to like Miracle Whip or Mayo–Recipe #36 (Add your cuke and Antohi pepper, too)

Kielbasa and Cabbage (Polish Sausage)–one of my family’s favorites!  Recipe #34.

Cabbage Burgers–a lot of versatility…cook for a meal or make ahead and freeze for winter enjoyment.  Recipe #35.  I use frozen bread dough–Blair’s carries a brand out of Utah that is close to home made…has better stretch than the conventional brands.  (I use whole wheat, but the white is light and airy though not complete nutrients.)

We are also overloaded with zucchini and cucumbersExtras are available on the EXTRA’s table along with your Share allotment at Pick Up. 

Zucchini Casserole (bakes 30 minutes and uses Stove-top Stuffing)–great family meal!-but good for a couple, too.  Recipe #3

Creamy Cucumber Salad– recipe #13

Next week:  Lemon Cucumbers!

Peaches and Cauliflower/Broccoli

Information on the peaches–New Haven yellow peaches, freestone, sweet and juicy.  There are 3 in your share- little over a pound.  Taste them and then order a case for delivery next week–if you want.   Case is 20#–Cost is $21.30.  Order by email or sign up at Pick Up or Farmer’s Market. This offer applies to anyone–not just CSA members or Fruit Share members.

AND how are you enjoying the Cauliflower and Broccoli!  We are overloaded–The Farmer informed me tonight that we have harvested all the Broccoli and Cauliflower–that planting is finished!  I should have known–we are out of crates, the cooler is full, and we had to start up the second cooler.

The next crop of broccoli will be ready in a month, but the cauliflower not until the early fall.  So….if you want to buy some broccoli or cauliflower, we will be selling it at Farmer’s Market for $1.50 a head.  (Out-of-town members can send me an email by Thursday evening and we’ll throw some into the truck or car for the deliveries on Friday.) 

Please tell your friends and neighbors–I easily have over 150 heads of each and they need to MOVE!

Until later–The Farmer’s Wife
