Farm Share Week 9- July 29, 2015
Hello from the Farm!
Stephanie is taking a few weeks from the blog as she anticipates the birth of her new baby, so this is Jennifer bringing you the scoop from the farm (and a couple food ideas) this week.
Hello heat wave! It’s been an adventure picking out in the fields in this sweltering weather, and I’ve been so grateful for that sweet time packing the boxes in the ice cool building (not to mention trips to the cooler to grab more items). However, I am thankful that this is great growing weather! Veggies come along in leaps and bounds in this kind of heat. For the whole shares we have some new mid-summer treats like cauliflower, eggplant, and green peppers. I am hoping to get enough cauliflower (or broccoli if I run out) for everyone next week. Grape tomatoes and ground cherries look like they’ll be ready for the eating next week, and the other tomatoes shouldn’t be far behind. I hope you enjoy these last weeks of peas and beans as we trade them for new items.
Here’s the lineup this week:
- green swiss chard
- turnip (purple and white root) or radish
- green beans
- Chinese cabbage
- sugar snap or snow peas
- green leaf lettuce
- collard greens
- green kale
Whole Shares: same as above with addition of…
- baby bok choy
- green peppers
- extra peas
- red leaf lettuce Stay Cool this week!
