CSA ~ June 20, 2019

Weekly & Bi-Weekly Share

Thank you for supporting Goodness Grows!

Happy CSA time to you! We hope you enjoy all the items this week and throughout the season. We encourage you to let us know if you have any questions or concerns, any problems or praise. Your feedback helps us to grow and improve - and we are always striving to learn and make the best CSA program possible.

As some of you already know, this year we are trying to be a little more "green." Therefore, we have done away with the paper lists and recipes we sent home last year. This year, you will get an email update for each one of your share pick-up days to let you know the contents of the share and to pass on some recipe ideas or helpful tips. Have any favorite ways to use fresh produce? Let us know and we will gladly share! Read on for your update...

CSA Pick Up ~ Thursdays 4-7pm

If you realize on a Thursday that you aren't going to be able to make it to pick-up, no problem! Just give us a call at 330-549-9408 to arrange a Friday visit.

We will provide at least six items each week. If we have any crop issues (like all this ridiculous rain!), we will supplement with produce from other local farms. Some weeks will include value added items, such as Jungle Jam, Zucchini Bread, or Fresh Basil Pesto.

Recipe Ideas

Mustard Greens

These are very versatile greens, that can be eaten raw, cooked, or added to salads and juices. They can be stir fried or steamed, and they go well with onion, tomato, garlic, or a bit of butter. The spiciness found in mustard greens can be toned down by adding an acid, like vinegar or lemon juice, toward the end of cooking. Looking to eat a low carb dish? Instead of serving meatballs over pasta, spoon them over cooked greens! To infuse the greens with meaty flavor, cook them in the same pan. Or, check out the simple recipe below from the Food Network and try sauteing them.

Fresh Dill

Dill brings a pop of flavor, making it a delicious accent for eggs, cheese, vegetables, fish, and more. Allrecipes.com has an easy and tasty recipe below to make a side dish of carrots into something special.


Taste of Home has a brilliant way to serve cucumbers! While cucumbers are always good in a tossed salad or paired with onions to make an easy cucumber salad, this open-faced sandwich idea takes them to a whole new level. This recipe can also use the fresh dill in your share.

Have a great week!
