Farm Share Week 5, July 4-7, 2018

Hello from the scorching greenhouses of the farm!
This crazy heat has ushered us into zucchini season (yay!) And the options with zucchini abound: from old favourites like zucchini bread or sauteed zucchini and carrots, to trendy fare like zoodles or zucchini boats, we hope you welcome this addition to your box.

Also new this week is chinese cabbage. We cut them in half this week because they were overwhelmingly large (some 5 or 6 lbs). Instead of leaving you drowning in chinese cabbage, we thought you could share your other half with another farm share customer out there. We added the plastic wrap to avoid browning. Now if you are wondering what to do with your half chinese cabbage, think asian stir fries, noodle soups or even raw in salad. Hope you enjoy.

New at the farm there is a new litter of kittens. We are loving the little kitty snuggles and abundant cuteness 🙂 if you’re coming to the farm for your box, you may even get a peek!

This week I used my spiralizer again-this delicious spiralized zucchini and beet salad is very refreshing in this heat.
I often forget to take photographs of my meals since by the time the cook sits down (myself) I’m famished and eat it all before remembering I needed to take a picture for the blog.  It’ll take a few weeks to get back into the swing of remembering to photograph my food!
