Week 2

Posted 6/27/2018 11:26am by Stephanie Bradshaw.

Hi Friends,

I hope you guys have all enjoyed your box this week!  Each week that goes by, the farm starts producing more and more.  It's exciting for us to watch the progress, and we love filling your box and family with beautiful, healing foods!

This week's full share contained 2 quarts of strawberries  :)  We were able to pick 200 quarts of strawberries that morning!!  Needless to say, it was an early morning for us.  You also saw Broccoli, Mustard Greens, Romaine Lettuce, Bok Choy, and Oregano.  Some folks may have received Lemon Balm as their herb, and Kale instead of Mustard Greens.  

If you're like me, you can't get enough of Greens!  I know they're a super food, and I have grown to deeply love them.  If you're not there yet, or just don't know how to fix some of them, we're including a few recipes below.  Don't worry though, the greens are heavy in the spring, and then the colors start coming.  The great thing with a CSA, and eating seasonally, is that you are constantly changing what's in your diet.  Also, if you don't know what to do with your herbs...dry them.  Organic spices are pretty expensive, but if you lay these suckers out, they dry up easily.  Crush them, and store in a glass jar and you'll have a wide variety of spices by the end of the season.  

Our Harvest Report is our best guess at what will be ready to pick for next week's box.  For this coming week (week 3, A group), we're thinking: Romaine Lettuce, Squash, Bok Choy, Peas, Cabbage, Strawberries, Broccoli, Basil, and Swiss Chard.  

Our Online Store closes tonight, so if you need any extras added to your box, you'll need to get it done today.  Everything you order will be delivered with your box...homemade bread, jams and jellies, mild and herb salsa's (These were made with the produce from our farm), and even pastured meats are all available to add on!  

As the season progresses, please don't forget to check our FB page.  We put a picture of each week's box, the Harvest Report for the next week's box, and lots of recipes and ideas from you guys.  If you guys make something delish...share it up!  We love new and classic recipes for fresh produce!  Here are a few recipes for the greens.  The Kale pesto comes from one of our members named Jenny.  Thank you so much for the help!
