Farm Share Week 5: July 5-7, 2017

Hello from the farm! It’s already week 5 in our farm share season and July already-how did this happen? I hope that you all had a wonderful 150th Canada Day filled with good food from your share and with family and friends.  This week we will start to see some other great things coming into harvest-such as zucchini! This may not excite everyone as it does me-but I bought a pampered chef veggie spiralizer this past winter and I’ve been waiting for farm share season to try it out.

Here is this weeks share contents:

Week 5
-snow peas
-snap peas
-endive (curly green leafy green)
-red currants
-zucchini
-cucumber
-baby bokchoy
-red leaf lettuce
-mint
-romaine lettuce
Whole
-purple top turnip
-oregano
-garlic scapes
-red kale
-strawberries

This week I hope to try out this totally tasty turnip slaw recipe since I usually have no clue what to do with them.  I have a friend who makes turnip fries from them-but I’ve always just roasted them in the oven with garlic and onions so this will be something new and different to try.  I’ll try and remember to post results!  I haven’t used my parsley yet from my share 2 weeks ago so this will use up 2 things from my share.

If you have any recipes please feel free to post them to our facebook page-we would love to see pictures of your beautiful creations with the produce from the farm.  It’s always helpful for many of our members who are unfamiliar with different items in the shares and its always wonderful to see it from farm to table.
