Rain, Happy Plants, & Happy Farmers

There is a lot of stuff around here soaking up the rain this week. The greens are much happier. And luckily there are an astonishing (to us) amount of fruits that are still producing thanks to all the recent heat and sun.

In addition to the abundance of salad greens, cooking greens, arugula, spinach, turnips, etc, we have some black radishes available this week. Check out this wild root: 099 

Some new lettuce varieties aren’t quite ready yet, but they are stunning:

Most of our greens are super versatile. You can enjoy them raw, cooked, juiced, or as a smoothie. Above is our Hearty Mix blended with coconut milk, a chunk of ginger, a frozen banana, and that’s it. Simply, nutritious, and tasty. Give it a go.
