Learning About Summer Squash

Summer squash is coming in and hopefully it will be around for a while. When selecting any seed, we first look to the taste of the vegetable. After that, we look at the disease resistance, durability and duration of each seed type.

This year we are growing Dunja Squash which is a dark-green, straight zucchini. Classic taste and perfect size.

Next up, we have Costata Romanesco which is a traditional Italian heirloom with a superior flavor.

Finally we have Yellowfin which produce uniform, cylindrical fruits and have an attractive golden-yellow color.

Each week we will try to mix it up to provide you with a variety of different tastes.

This week in your share, you will be getting: butterhead, bibb and romaine lettuce, leaf lettuce, arugula, kale, Swiss chard, radishes, pak choi (full shares only), oregano, dill, snow peas and snap peas. Generally snap peas are for eating raw and snow peas are terrific in a stir fry but young snap peas are also great cooked up.

Look forward to seeing you tomorrow, between 3:30- to 6:30.
