Your CSA typically begins in June with leafy greens like kale, mesclun, arugula and cabbages. As the season progresses, you can expect both greater numbers and varieties of crops in your weekly pickup. By August you can expect the full suite of summer crops, vegetables like melons and tomatoes. Come late September and October, your basket will include more late summer and fall crops such as squashes, sweet potatoes and root crops. An example of crops you might expect in any given month are below.
June/July - Spinach, kale, broccoli, head lettuce, scallions, kohlrabi, collards, beets, fennel, garlic scapes, zuchinni
August - Corn, carrots, beans, hakurei turnips, pickling cukes, kale, bell peppers, tomatillos, mesclun or arugula, dill, eggplant, melons
