Good Morning. Here is what we are eating this week.
Lil Gem Lettuce Head
Bunch of Parsley
A few Potatoes
Golden Nugget Tangerines
Green Bell Pepper “NEW”
Baby spring Onions “NEW”
Cluster of Sunflowers for your table!!
Six Pack of Eggs
Tomatoes are beefing up. Cucumbers, Eggplant, Corn, Melons, Peppers, Squash and all the other summer stuff is coming along. Zucchini and Basil in the box this week. Having those ought to feel a little like summer. Carrots are always a crowd pleaser. We are always glad to have carrots around.
We are still putting a lot of chard in the shares. Many of the leafy greens are growing much better in this new soil. Portions are bigger.
Since our Basil crop is just starting, the portion is small. Might I suggest making a pesto with Chard leaves and Basil? Your pesto will still have that basil kick. You’ll just get a lot more to eat since Chard is abundant in the share this week.
Check out this post about grilling beets. The preparation includes Arugula and Bell Pepper
Don’t forget to cook and eat your bet greens. The weather is not too hot yet. The beet greens are still coming out pretty sweet.
We expect you will enjoy your farm food this week. This week end is supposed to be cooler than usual. We will be taking advantage of the weather to put in some more summer yummies before it gets too hot to plant.
