Week 17 of Harmony Valley Farm‘s CSA (blog) contained the following:

  • Yellow onions,
  • Italian garlic,
  • Green beans,
  • Edamame,
  • Sweet corn,
  • Tomato variety bag: You’ll have a mix that could include Carolina Gold (yellow), a variety of black tomatoes, Copia (striped heirloom type), Rose (pink heirloom type) and some red slicing tomatoes.
  • Grape tomatoes,
  • Carrots,
  • Squash,
  • Cucumbers,
  • Watermelon,
  • Melon,
  • Poblano peppers,
  • Jalapeños,
  • Bell pepper,
  • Amaranth,
  • Salad Mix,
  • Eggplant, and
  • Cauliflower

As the veggies have gotten more familiar, we’ve been able to eat a lot more of them in any given week.  We ate pretty much everything this week.  Last weekend we actually bought a bunch of small cucumbers and pickled them!  Hopefully you’ll be seeing more about this later.

This week we took part in Harmony Valley’s Produce Plus program.  They just started offering it this week, but you are able to purchase quantities of certain vegetables that they have a lot of sitting around the farm.  Most of them are “seconds” which have minor defects that prevent them from being sold on the market.  Instead of letting them go to waste Harmony Valley is allowing their members to purchase them at reasonable rate. We bought 25 pounds of tomatoes for $25. Yikes!   We hope to spend some time this weekend canning them.

Wish us luck!

I enjoy reading about how others use their box and have enjoyed Simple, Good, and Tasty’s discussion about local food and their Harmony Valley CSA.  A recent post highlighted a more unique use of a CSA.  <a href=”http://simplegoodandtasty.com/2009/08/13/galactic-pizza-serves-pies-with-a-conscience”>CSA Pizza</a> is sold by Galactic Pizza, a local pizza joint.  The pizza aptly uses food from their weekly box, which happens to also come from Harmony Valley.

We had a great weekend at “our farm” – Harmony Valley Farms. We road tripped down the Mississippi River to find our farm nestled in a valley in southwest Wisconsin. Here is a quick synopsis:

– Camping with other members in the meadow
– Chatting with Richard, the owner, around the campfire
– Watching the fog lift off the valley in the morning
– Potlucking with even more members, meeting bloggers Heather and Lee
– Picking strawberries in the rain and eating lots of them!
– Getting a wagon tour of the fields
– Eating Sugar Snap Peas we picked from the fields
– Talking with one of the “professional” growers and hearing his passion for organic produce and this farm
