June 6, 2018 First CSA Share of the Season

Sorry for the late post.  It has been a busy week.  I usually try to get this out the same day as the shares are picked up so that everyone can check to see what was in the share if you didn’t recognize it.  We had a variety of herbs, green garlic, garlic scapes, radishes, rhubarb, lettuce, mustard, onions and choice of asparagus, strawberries, or broccolini.

Not sure what do with garlic scapes check out these ideas from Bon Appetit https://www.bonappetit.com/test-kitchen/ingredients/article/garlic-scapes

You can even use the rhubarb and green garlic in this chutney recipe.  https://lynnecurry.com/2016/05/rhubarb-chutney-recipe/

About GI Acres CSA

GI Acres is located on the western edge of Grand Island, Nebraska. The garden takes up about half of an acre. We also have chickens, rabbits and bees

Our farm is not USDA Certified Organic and we do not anticipate applying for such status. We strive to produce healthy vegetables using natural methods of fertilizing, building soil, and controlling pests such as insects and weeds. Those healthy vegetables will begin in mid to late May with herbs, asparagus, rhubarb and strawberries. During the season you can expect a variety of greens, beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, squash, corn and potatoes along with tips about how to cook and preserve your weekly share. The season will conclude in late September or early October. We aim for a 20-week season.

We did not grow up on farms but we did grow up in families with large gardens, eating a variety of fresh produce and canning/freezing the excess. We have maintained the tradition of growing and preserving food for our family for the past 20+ years. GI Acres is our attempt to share that passion for good food with our community.
