This week we were definitely enjoying the end of roller-coaster weather and the start of what feels like (do I dare say it?) summer. Thanks to our brand-spanking-refurbished WALK-IN COOLER, we are able to store your veggies more easily and cool them quicker.
Lots of greens to go around this week:
- Head Lettuce
- Salad Mix
- Pac Choi
- Beet Greens
- Swiss Chard OR Kale
- Broccoli (Tues)/ Radishes (Thurs)
- Salad Mix
This week you have Pac Choi (or Bok Choy–which is a larger variety), an Asian Cabbage high is Vitamin C and A. Great for stir frys with beef or pork, you can also chop it up in a slaw or do a veggie stir fry. This recipe from Food Network is a simple stir fry: Bok Choy with Ginger and Garlic
Welcome members to the start of a great season! After a crazy cool spring and the heat spell that followed, we might be settling in to our growing season at last. We have almost everything planted, as well as succession crops of more radishes, carrots, lettuces, broccoli and beets. You will notice that our CSA will start out a little light, but it will catch up soon enough!
This week, enjoy some spring treats for a fresh salad or stir fry. Members will receive: salad mix, baby kale, radishes, scallions and salad turnips
There is a great link from Driftless Organics with information and recipes for all sorts of CSA vegetables. Here is the link for Salad Turnips: https://www.driftlessorganics.com/csa-2/recipes/salad-turnips/
Salad Turnips are spring or fall turnips that can be eaten fresh, like a radish, or sliced and stir fried. Sweet and tender, these little roots are good either way, and their greens can be cooked as well (much like other turnip greens).
The baby kale can also be eaten raw or cooked. This early, tender kale is especially good in a “massaged” kale salad.
Enjoy your veggies and the sunshine that comes with them, and thanks again for supporting our farm! –Jess, Justin and family
