Is it the Wacky Weather …

weekly CSA produce share
A mix of summer and winter crops. What’s up with that?

… that lets us pick up fresh okra in the middle of November — just unbelievable, since okra is a hot weather crop. But, some things are really starting to show that winter’s coming on. In particular, the oranges and the greens. Citrus is a winter crop, and, here in Arizona, the summers (and the falls, and the springs) are often too hot for those large leafy greens. The dryness and sun just blast the moisture right out of them.

So, this week we picked up:

  • Oranges (3)
  • Okra (1 basket)
  • Roasted chillies (1 bag) traded for another basket of okra
  • Braising mix (1 bag)
  • Tomatillos and hot yellow peppers (1 basket) traded for more braising mix
  • Onions (2)
  • Red potatoes (3)
  • Radishes (1 bunch)
