Farm Share Week 12: Aug 18-21, 2016

I can’t hardly believe we are over halfway though our farm share season already!  I took my boys to the park today and there were leafs already brown on the ground-a sign that summer is nearing an end and the fall will soon be here.  While I am saddened by how short our summer season is, I am very excited for what the fall harvest is going to bring us.  I shared a recipe last week for the radicchio with sausages and here is a picture of our meal.  My husband wasn’t too fond of the radicchio-so I’ll be trying another recipe if another one comes in our share.  If you have a recipe you used and enjoyed please share by emailing Jennifer a picture and a recipe and we will post it to the blog!
Here is what you can expect to see in your shares this week-since we missed a week while away and are doing a fast I requested we get  half share on the weeks we usually wouldn’t get a share.  This weeks recipe I thought I’d share some lettuce wrap recipes.
I know that sometimes salads despite the wide variety can sometimes get old-but there are SO many options for lettuce that are not salads.  I’ll try making these for the boys this week hoping that they’ll enjoy more leafy greens but over the next 40 days my husband and I are fasting-and so I will be sharing a lot more smoothie recipes as well as juicing recipes too!
Here is what our half share this week looks like!

About the Author


My name is Stephanie Hofman and this is my 5th year with the farm share program.
I am an earth loving hippie-follower of Christ-lover of all people and love to try new things. I am not a blogger outside of zephyr organics-so please keep this in mind as I continue to learn the in’s and out’s of what it means to create a good blog and to be a good blogger!

My family and I do our best to make everything at home from scratch, but we are not fully organic, non-GMO, nor are we dairy free or gluten free. I do my best with what I have and am slowly but surely making changes towards a more healthy lifestyle.

I try and keep the recipes that I share to encompass all diets-some will be desserts, some will be juicing recipes (last year I failed epically at my juicing fast-FYI don’t add ‘more kale’ just to use it up in a recipe) some gluten and dairy free-some vegan and many in between.

Most of the items in the box I am familiar with now-but a few years ago I didn’t know what bokchoy was nor had I ever heard of swiss chard-now they are my 2 favourite items to get in my box!

I’m a free going spirit who has taught herself most things and love to help others out since I’ve only become who I am and gotten to where I am in life because of the love and generosity of those who’ve I’ve encountered. I’ve never been very good at spelling nor have I been very computer savvy. Any feedback and suggestions are always welcome.

Thank you so much for joining us on this journey towards supporting local farmers and supporting the growing organic food movement. May your box bless you and your family all season long and I look forward to sharing my recipe successes and failures with you.
