Want to purchase bread to pick up with your Farm Share on Wednesday? See our Bread ordering page here. Ordering is open until 7 am on Tuesday.

Vegetables coming up next: Tomatoes are on their way! Those and basil will be in shares just as soon as we can. Summer Squash are coming around.

And…for those of you who did not pick up a copy of the Taproot magazine last week, we will have copies at the pick up locations again this week. (This is an independent, ad-free, quarterly magazine focusing on food, farm, family, and craft. We have enjoyed our subscription since they started a few years ago. Recently, they asked CSA farms to apply to receive complimentary copies to pass on to CSA members. We applied and today we received them. Please look for a stack at each pick up location and help yourself to a copy. Each quarter has a different theme, and this edition’s theme is ::PRESERVE. There are moving stories, beautiful art, delicious recipes, and gorgeous crafts, including coloring pages. Enjoy!)
Market Share CSA Members: 
Ordering is open until 7 am on Tuesday for…Asian Greens, Basil, Beets, Cabbage (savoy style), Chard, Collards, Cucumbers, Dill, Head Lettuce, Kale, Kohlrabi, Lavender, Parsley, Salad Mix, Scallions, Squash, Turnips…and our Organic Bread. Reserve your selection online to pick up on Wednesday, June 15.

Recipe Suggestions:
Broccoli – If you aren’t going to simply enjoy it raw (in salad or as a snack dipped in hummus or other dip), try Roasted Broccoli. (Try adding garlic, or parmesan, or crushed red pepper, or drizzle with aioli, etc.)
Tatsoi – This is one of the greens in our Hearty Greens mix. It was also bunched and alone in the Farm Share earlier in the season. Treat it like Kale or Spinach. We love it raw as a salad: Slice thinly, dress with a Honey-Balsamic Dressing, cheese (feta, goat cheese, Parmesan…your choice), pecans, and dried fruit (cranberries, cherries, raisins, etc.). OR Saute it with butter, salt, pepper, garlic, etc. and serve as a side dish or on top of warm, open-faced sandwiches.
Parsley – This herb adds a wonderful freshness to salads. Simply chop and top any green salad for a crisp tasting treat. OR Combine with Cucumbers, onion, and lemon in this Cucumber-Parsley Salad.
Turnips – Try them with Roasted Garlic Goat Cheese & Sesame, or Slow Cooked Salmon with Turnips & Swiss Chard, or Chicken in a Pot with Carrots, Turnip, and Barley or see a plethora of turnip inspiration here.  This week is the end of turnips until the fall.
Lettuce – See a host of Lettuce Wrap Recipes here. Fill these tasty boats with just a few things from this list of delicious options to keep it light and tasty.
