Farm Share Week 6 (July 11-14, 2018)

Hello from the fields of Zephyr Organics! You’ll never guess what I found today…a watermelon that looks and feels ripe! I was not brave enough to pick it…it is so early for melons and most of the melons are still growing but I take it as a sign of things to come.i

I also found the coolest bug today: it was shimmering gold! Now if only I had a picture so you dont think I’ve been out in the sun too long!

Broccoli, broccoletti and kolhrabi are just starting, with more to come. Broccoli plants form one larger tight head in the centre of each plant, whereas broccoletti sends out multiple shoots of smaller, less dense heads. Either is extremely tasty!

If you are in doubt of what to cook this week, stir fry is probably the answer. I have the best mom ever, and while I harvested your veggies and packed your boxes, she was caring for our 3 kids, cleaning my house, and whipping up this tasty number with zucchini, spinach, snow peas, chicken and red pepper from the freezer. Hope you have an epic stir fry this week too!

So here are your veggies:
