CSA: Week 16
Hey, it's the final week!

Well, the purple brussels sprouts we planted aren't ready yet - they will likely be ready sometime next month. However, they've got these big, beautiful, purple-veined leaves, so we are pulling those off the plants today to send to you as cooking greens. Sprouts are members of the brassica family, just like kale, collards, and cabbage. The leaves are said to be more tender than collards - let us know what you think!
Once again, thanks for supporting us! We have been so happy to be your farmers for the 2019 growing season. - Leah & John
