This is the part of the season that I like best. The tomato vines are starting to tower over our heads and new vegetables are popping up weekly. We just sampled our first beans and found our first zucchini. Costata romanesco (pictured below) is one of our favorites and when it shows up in the boxes, I hope you’ll enjoy this Italian heirloom variety as much as we do.
Week 4 CSA box:
Beets or Carrots
Summer squash or zucchini
Large boxes add:
Snow or Snap peas
Romanesco cauliflower is a work of art unto itself. It’s one of the vegetables that always draws comments at the farmers market such as “what IS that?” and “it’s too pretty to eat.” We love edible art and it’s become a favorite at the farm.

What’s coming up in the second session? Beans, tomatoes, zucchini and new varieties of summer squash, and (hopefully) cucumber will take center stage. Stay tuned…
