Our 10 week Fall season begins, after a 4 week break following 20 consecutive weeks of our Spring and Summer seasons. The harvest still looks a lot like summer. We’re planting and working the cool weather greens and varieties, but the hot weather continues which means summer varieties continue to thrive.
Here’s our expected harvest this week, though shares may vary:
Full Share: Melon, Tomatoes or Eggplant, Malabar spinach, Squash, Winter squash, Cucumbers, Okra, Basil, Peppers, Black eyed peas (double portion), Onions, Rosemary
Half Share: Squash, Cucumbers, Okra, Basil, Peppers, Black eyed peas, Onions, Rosemary
Try out this tasty black eyed pea salsa dip this week with your onions, peppers and, of course, black eyed peas! This recipe could also be delicious with cucumbers!
To prepare your black eyed peas for this recipe, first shell and rinse the peas. Place peas in a pot with just enough water to cover and simmer until soft. Simmering time will vary with your preference of softness.
