Farm Share Week 7: July 13-15, 2016

Week 7 of your farm share boxes are here! With the rain we got this past week as well as last night will no doubt be welcomed by all the plants (and us!) with the intense heat we’ve had this week.  Here is what you can expect to see in this weeks box.  Next week you will see beans and carrots in your boxes too.


Week 7
Half (5 cases tues, 3 cases thurs)
-baby bokchoy
-blackcurrants or black raspberries
-green onions
-collard greens
-red leaf or sangria lettuce (pretty red)
-extra zucchini
-green kale


(1 case tues, 1 case thurs)
-red beets
-chinese broccoli or endive

Last week Jennifer was kind enough to do the blog for me while we went on a canoe/backpacking camping trip in Algonquin park.  We took our 11 month old and our 3.5 year old out and did 2 portages and while it was intense (insane?) we had a wonderful time connecting with nature and each other.  We did miss our week to get our box delivered but I just send Jenny a message requesting to have it delayed one week and voila! Yesterday my box showed up without even a reminder! So if you are going on vacation or will be away for whatever reason please don’t hesitate to contact us and have your share delayed until your return.  The new recipe I am going to try with the collard greens is Collard wrapped roasted veggie tamales.
I haven’t ever made anything like this before-and I’m excited to try it when time permits.  If you have any recipes that you care to share please don’t hesitate to link them in the comments below or share on our page on facebook.  Check out the pinterest page for more recipes that Jenny has pinned over the years too!

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 →
