|Some of Amanda and Ed's lovely cabbage!|
Returning members will know this from previous years but for new members: our neighbours, Amanda and Ed, help grow for our CSA. They are a retired couple, like-minded in terms of not using chemicals, they are enthusiastic, experienced gardeners and we're so happy to have them grow for you! Once again this year, they've come up with some beautiful cabbage. Amanda keeps these looking so good with a mix of flour and cayenne pepper to keep the bugs off! Everyone is getting a lovely summer cabbage today! Here's a round up of coleslaw recipes from simple to spicy Asian and more! Of course, there is cabbage soup (along with the blogger's 7-day diet plan), cabbage fried, in sautees or steamed and cabbage rolls! You'll probably get more cabbage, at least next week, so familiarize yourself with some recipes! It stores well just in the fridge, so you don't need to get frantic about using it up in the next few days!
So, for today: for the Full Shares: a large cabbage, bag of Grande Rapids lettuce, bundle of baby Romaine lettuce, Swiss chard, onions, large bag of shelling peas, small bag of snow peas, 2 pints raspberries.
For the Part Shares: large cabbage, bag of Grande Rapids lettuce, bundle of baby Romaine lettuce, Swiss chard, onions, medium bag of shelling peas, two pints raspberries.
For the Single Shares: small cabbage, bag of Grande Rapids lettuce, bundle of baby Romaine lettuce, Swiss chard, onions, small bag of shelling peas, pint of raspberries.
We've got volunteer opportunities next week! If you'd like to come help at the farm we need raspberry pickers on both Tuesday and Thursday mornings! Volunteers always go home with bonuses! We're also looking for help on Weeding Wednesdays, morning or evening come help pull a few of those weeds! Pet a baby goat, cluck at a chicken, play with a small doggie or pet a barn cat - lots to do while you're here! Email us if you're interested!
