  • Winter CSA Week #8

    Welcome to Week 8 Greensgrow CSA Members! Now that Winter Storm Stella has come and gone we think that maybe (MAYBE) it’ll be Springtime. This wonky weather has kept all of the wonderful farms that we work with and ourselves on our toes. Crops are popping up early, Greenhouses (Queens Farm + Greensgrow West) are collapsing and it's all causing some slight, but manageable, chaos. That being said, ...

  • Tomorrow is opening day. Tomorrow is opening day.

    Tomorrow the gates open and we begin our 20th year of very public experimentation on how growing food on concrete can make a difference. And I say gates plural because Greensgrow West will welcome its first spring in its permanent home. The tiny house got delivered yesterday, so I imagine Lee is already putting out the lawn chairs and hanging the moose head on the wall. That reminds me, I need to ...

The honey comes from Fruitwood Orchards, a fixture in our farmstand and the farming community in the Delaware Va...

  • Happy 2017 Greensgrow CSA Members!

    We are excited for the new year and for all the possibilities (and vegetables, proteins, and other fun prepared foods) that it brings with it. With the new year comes the array of the projected food trends. It’s one of my favorite traditions of the year; watching the “experts” hedge bets on what food will be the next kale. It’s not because I want to be part of the trend or even agree but it’s inte...

  • Welcome to Week #19!

    This week’s share includes fall harvest hits like hearty butternut squash and sweet savoy cabbage. Butternut squash has yellow-orange flesh and a tender-firm texture that holds up when cooked. Their nutty mild flavor is versatile, making it a traditional choice for stuffing and baking. The hard rind is not good for eating, but helps the squash hold its shape when baked. Included in the recipe sect...

  • Fall is Here!

    We hope you had a fruitful summer! The fall equinox comes tomorrow at 10:21am. According to National Geographic, "the word equinox means "equal night" referring to the roughly 12-hour day and night that occurs only on the two equinox days of the year." It brings cooler temperatures that will make for great days ahead for planting. Both of our locations are stocked with seasonal plants suited to th...

These apples have a excellent shelf life, keeping anywhere from 3 to 6 months in a cold refrigerator. Though today was a little on the wa...

  • Enjoy the Last Days of Summer

    We'll all be trading in swim suits and watermelons for sweaters and gourds soon enough, so we're enjoying summer it while it lasts. There are still some tomatoes on the vine, flowers in the garden and the sky is that clear September blue. It's the time that makes everybody wonder if they got enough summer in their summer. We hope you did! It's tough to see the other side of the peak of growing se...

  • Greensgrow Summer CSA: Welcome to Week #17

    This week’s share includes a sought after and rare regional delicacy. It is the largest and best-tasting pole bean we have ever tried and its higher sugar content helps put this heirloom lima bean in a class of its own. Dr. Martin lima beans were developed in the 1920s by none other than Dr. Martin himself. He was a dentist who owned a small farm along Street Road in Westtown near West Chester and...
