CSA Shares for 6.24.2015

This week’s Farm Share will most likely include:
Beets, Green Beans, Cucumbers, Garlic, Onions, Parsley, Salad Mix, Bell Pepper, and Tomatoes

**Note: We have been without electricity since Saturday evening, but we have been keeping plants alive (watering hoophouses and the fields, powering fans in the greenhouse, keeping the walk in cooler cold for the vegetables and flowers we had to harvest on Sunday…) by rotating power around with our generator. We anticipate having power restored today so that we can pick, wash, and pack tomorrow like usual, without hindrance. We are thankful for having reliable electricity and line workers that have been working overtime to restore service! 

Recipe Suggestions: (our apologies for forgetting to list recipes last week! Our archive list is always cataloged on our Recipe Page )
Parsley – We love fresh herbs! We hope you have been enjoying them as well. Parsley is excellent added to any salad – leafy greens, pasta, sweet potato…We love it with feta cheese, or goat cheese, or any cheese in any salad! It is also delicious mixed with garlic and cheese as a spread/dip for crackers, bread, or cut veggies. We also love chimichurri as a side sauce/dressing for many dishes.
Preserving herbs through fermenting them in a brine: See this recipe here. Inspired by an article in a recent Taproot magazine, we are about to dive into this new method of using herbs. Basil and Parsley for months!
Cucumbers and Tomatoes –  with Feta and Basil is a hit at our house
Beets – it seems like goat cheese and feta are the big features in this recipe list today, but we won’t apologize for that. Roasted beets with goat cheese and walnuts is a favorite of ours
Bell Pepper – Sylvie made this Macaroni Salad with peppers for her father for Father’s Day yesterday

Available for Market Share CSA members to choose from this week: Basil, Cabbage, Chard, Collards, Kale, Flower bouquets (sunflowers only or mixed with zinnias), Lettuce Mix, Salad Mix, Summer Squash…and Fermented Jalapenos, naturally leavened Hearth Baked Bread.

2015 Market Share CSA Members: Reserve your selection online to pick up on Wednesday, June 24th at our farm, in Church Hill, or at Good Health Herbs.

Enjoy ~ Janet, Dan, and the rest of the Broadfork crew
