You'll be green with envy

This week as our first harvest we have a wonderful variety of greens for you. Don't worry, more and more varieties of vegetables will come in season as the summer rolls on.

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. The earlier you pick up the fresher your vegetables will be.

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

In this week's basket you can expect:

  • joi choi - a leafy green Chinese vegetable
  • black magic kale - a dark leafy green vegetable
  • radish
  • green onions
  • chives
  • mixed lettuces
  • beet greens
  • strawberries
If they are ready we may also have Chinese cabbage and some choi mei.

I have put up some details on what to do with some of these as well as nutritional information on the new recipes and ideas page.


Please note we are still accepting sharers for the CSA, passed weeks will be pro-rated.


Here's what this weeks basket looks like in a family sized share all laid out.

We made green chile sauce and RJR salsa

We made several batches of salsa and then we had so many green tomatoes we made a few batches of green tomato chile sauce. We ate the extra salsa still hot yummy.




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.
