Happy Harvest August 17, 2012

House in the Woods is represented in a new cookbook geared to CSA veggies–Vegetable Bliss by Julie Sochack. I’ll have a book sample to show you today, let me know if you would like to join in a bulk CSA order.

Select 8 items from these yummy choices:


green peppers–italian long peppers, bell peppers,  pimento peppers

red peppers–the fall weather brings on the ripening of greens to red. Enjoy these red peppers!

garlic–hard-neck garlic is special and hard to find, especially locally grown organic…try this fragrant garlic sauteed with pasta and/or veggies!

basil–sweet or red

basil–thai–this one cooks down like a green vegetable rather than an herb. try it with a soy sauce based sautee!

jalapenos–time to make fresh salsa!

maybe chard–get your greens

onions–enjoy these fresh farm onions! They are so good.

sweet potato greens–they wilt down like a spinach, splash with vinegar, yum!

white potatoes–heirloom potato grown in Maryland Kennebec

baby potatoes–sautee or bake these with butter/olive oil and herbs and lots of garlic, oh my!


zinnia bouquet

cherry tomatoes–sungold and matt’s wild cherry

green beans–Help us pick out the row so they’ll keep providing…Provider beans

Bring the kids out to collect your veggies and u-pick with you…its a great way to get them involved and knowing where their food comes from. Kids get excited about eating green beans and cherry tomatoes when they picked them straight from the vine.
