Week 6

Posted 6/27/2018 4:49pm by Stephanie Bradshaw.

 

Hi Folks,

Week 6 brought a beautiful box, full of the classic summer produce! Flat leaf Kale, Cauliflower or Broccoli, Squash, Zucchini, Cucumbers, Carrots, Celery, Red New Potatoes, Heirloom Tomatoes, Onions, and Green Beans rounded out our full shares.

 

I'm so thankful to finally have tomatoes back in my menu... fresh tomatoes just makes everything taste a little better!  The celery we grow is best used as an herb.  It's got a much stronger flavor than store bought, and makes an excellent addition to soups and stir fry's.  Also, if you've never had an heirloom tomato before, you might have thought it was too green, or just plain ugly :)  That's okay though, they are a funny looking color...a mix of red's, green's, and browns...but the taste is amazing!

 

 

 

Our Harvest Report for next week (Week 7, Bi-weekly A group) looks like: Onions, Squash, Green Beans, Zucchini, Kale, Peppers, Red Beets, Cabbage, Cucumbers, Tomatoes, and Basil! I like to plan out my menu for the week, so that I can make sure healthy meals are ready to make.  This week I'm planning:  Porkchops with angel hair zucchini pasta with a pesto sauce and fresh green beans, Eggplant Parmesan with grassfed ground beef (I blend up onion, garlic, and squash in my sauce to sneak veggies in), an easy crockpot meal...Beef Roast with new potatoes, onion, garlic, and carrots,  and lastly a stir fry using ground beef, onion, squash, zucchini/squash, and peppers!  When cooking your green beans, you'll need at least 2 hours of cooking time to get them to their best flavor.


Our Online Farm store is open until early Monday morning.  We've added several new items this week, and anything you order will be sent with your box on your pickup day.  Red Beets, Eggplant, Green Tomatoes, Heirloom Tomatoes, and so much more, along with our grassfed and finished beef, and pastured pork!   

Don't forget that next Saturday, June 30th, is our Family Farm Day.  Pack a lunch, and come visit us anytime between 10 and 2!  We'll be doing pony rides, wagon rides around the farm, and showing everyone the methods we use to grow everything.  It's always a super fun day, and we hope to see you all there.
