Weekly Farm Notes :: June 8th, 2016


Today is the last day of the CSA session. We hope you have enjoyed the bounty of the season!

We are doing a Kraut Source demo to show you how easy it is to make sauerkraut. Stop by if you are interested in learning more! See you at market!


June 8th Produce

Here are the items you can expect at Market {M} and in the CSA {CSA}:

  • Swiss Chard {M/CSA}: use both the chard and kale in this Lacto-fermented Kale & Swiss Chard Kimchi!
  • Young Romaine & Green Leaf Lettuce {M/CSA}: if you haven’t already, I encourage you to look over our Essentials for a Satisfying Salad post. We break down salad making to it’s basic elements, making it fun and easy to make a salad based on whatever you have on hand.
  • Siberian Kale {CSA}: here is something a bit different – check out this post for a history lesson on Russian and Siberian Kale!
  • Collard Greens {CSA}: the heat has toughened the collards up a bit but they would still be perfect as chips – give our “Cheesy” Collard Green Chips recipe a try!
  • Carrots {CSA}: the markets Summer Rolls with Spicy Peanut Sauce recipe would be perfect for a variety of our produce this week! Pack them full of carrots, green onions, kale or swiss chard and herbs!
  • Green Onions {CSA}: I love the simplicity of this Soba Noodles with Scallions and Fried Eggs recipe. We all need more weeknight meal options and this one looks perfect.
  • Cabbage {CSA}: once you learn the basics of lacto-fermenting, you can make much more than sauerkraut. I love our Curtido recipe, which is a Salvadorian version of sauerkraut, packed with carrots, onions and jalapenos. It’s a really tasty way to spice up any number of meals.
  • Pak Choi {M}: I come back to our Triple Sesame Noodles with Pak Choi recipe often. I love the quick and flavorful sauce and think it would be great on just about anything mixed in.
  • Herbs {M}: I make smoothies all the time but I don’t often include much, if any, herbs. Here is a great list of herbs that can be included in your next smoothie plus lots of tasty recipe ideas.
