Farm Share Week 2: June 8-10, 2016

A note from Jennifer-
Finally the rain came! We are still busy planting in the fields, and a nice drink of rain is perfect for the new transplants. The cucumbers in the greenhouse are just starting to get to harvest size (next week!) and some of the little green strawberries in the strawberry field are turning to red. I have been checking them almost every day in my excitement.
This week’s box has lots of leafy green goodness. I hope you discover a new way to enjoy them this week. Most of the leafy greens can be enjoyed in salad, wilted in butter or oil, or added to pastas, soups, stir fries and much more. Enjoy 🙂

About the Author

StephanieMy 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.View all posts by Stephanie →
