Here is what is in the CSA this week
Beautiful big beets with perfect greens for saute
Bag of large leaf arugula
Red Russian Kale
A few mini butterhead type lettuce
The hot fire of a grill does certainly bring out the earthy sweetness of a beet. This weeks beets are a good size for grilling.
The celery we grew this spring is super aromatic and strong in flavor. Wonderful for a soup or roasting or chopping up for fresh eating in salads. Not so wonderful as a raw stick to be used as a delivery system for say, peanut butter or hummus. Commercial growers use tubes that they put over the celery in order to blanch the lower stems. This results in a less nutritious product. It also increases bug and insect problems. Since we don’t use insectiside and our intention is to provide nutrition that cannot be acquired through a regular grocery store, we grow our celery like we do. We tried this celery soup recipe with some basil. Yum!
The Farm Stand will be open today Saturday 9:30 til 2 pm
We will have everything we had last week. We might pull some peppers.
