Saturday July 13 is the first CSA Basket day

Saturday the 13th of July we will deliver your first basket of vegetables for the season. James will be at the Farmer's Market Parking lot near the pond, from about 9:00 am to 11:00 am. Look for a blue Dodge Caravan the hatchback will be open, if it is not raining.  If it is raining look for the STOP PLAN B bumper sticker. The earlier you pick up the fresher your vegetables will be.

If you are not able to pick up your basket at that time, please contact us to make other arrangements.

Egg production is down because some of our hens have meet an untimely end in the jaws of Mr and Mrs Fox.  It was Murder of Most Fowl! Sadly, the pun is intended.

We will set some eggs aside for our sharers if you let us know at csa@rjrfarm.ca, how many dozen you want. 

A list of this weeks basket of vegetables will be sent to you Thursday evening. Recipes and serving suggestions will be included in the email. The first basket will include a fair amount of green produce.

Here is a link to some great recipes to try with your basket contents. If you have a chance to look at the July 2013 issue of Canadian Living magazine there is an article about CSAs.


If anyone wants to join our CSA, at any time, they may do so.  The cost of the CSA will be pro-rated over the remaining weeks.






Thank you,

Rita and James

Chive blossom vinegar

To make chive blossom vinegar we trim off the flowers from chives and soak them in vinegar for a couple weeks. The chive flowers infuse the vinegar with a garlicky flavour and a beautiful pink hue. This can be used as a flavoured vinegar for salad dressings, dips, to sprinkle on fish or fries, or for a bowl of cucumber slices.


A ready batch.


Clean jars.


The light shining through the pink vinegar. So pretty.

Here's a recipe for a vinaigrette made with chive blossom vinegar.

Strawberries

We're expecting to have extra berries after our CSA sharers have gotten theirs. If you would like a crate or two for making jam, or maybe just a couple boxes for snacking, please give us a call. They are $4.50/box, $54/crate.

Red, green, and savoy cabbage

Cabbage red or green is not just good for jigg's dinner (also known as 'corned beef & cabbage' or simply 'boiled dinner'), it's great for sauerkraut, roasted vegetables, coleslaw, and stir fry. This yummy quinoa soup recipe uses cabbage and all kinds of other veggies.


Red cabbage-  A great source of vitamin C, vitamin K, and anti-oxidants this cabbage can be shredded in a raw coleslaw, chopped for a soup, or shredded into sauerkraut or kimchi.


Savoy cabbage - This round cabbage is vitamin and fiber rich. You can roast it, make cabbage rolls,  even put it in soup . Read more about the health and nutritional benefits here.
