(No baby yet…sometime this week would be wonderful…)
Farm Share CSA Members – this week’s share will likely consist of:
Salad Mix, Hearty Mix, Asian Spinach, Kale, Arugula, Sweet Peppers, a pair of Jalapenos, Tomatoes, Radish, Kohlrabi, and Turnips (sweet asian variety).
(Next week we get the first of new fall crops for you – broccoli, sweet potatoes, and winter squash!)
RAIN PLAN: For those Farm Share members that pick up here at the farm: We are packing all boxes Tuesday mid-day, due to the incredible forecast for rain on Wednesday. Thus, you can pick up a day earlier if you wish: starting at 2 pm on Tuesday your boxes will be in our walk-in. If you do pick up on Wednesday, wear your rain boots! (Pick up in Church Hill will be on Wednesday, as usual.)
Recipe Suggestions: (cataloged on our Recipe Page)
Stir Fried Bok Choy & Mizuna (our Hearty Mix has greens like this in it)
Pancetta, Mizuna, and Tomato Sandwich with Garlic Aioli (Use any of our greens for this. AND — use Arugula Pesto instead of the garlic Aioli. And serve it – or anything else – with slices of Kohlrabi)
Simple way to enjoy our Hearty Mix, Arugula, Spinach, and/or Kale: This weekend we put 2 bags of these mixed cooking greens into a pot of stock with a cup of rice. Once rice is cooked, serve in bowls, topped with shreds of greyere cheese and salsa verde.
Mizuna (or any other greens!) Salad with Roasted Cauliflower
Mizuna and Arugula Salad with Feta & Champagne Vinaigrette
Garlic Chicken with Chard & Turnips
