DIGGING DEEPER

In Your Share (Aug 13th edition)

Lotsa watering this week! This is a nice photo of the fall broccoli cooling off at the end of the day at the Grand Island farm.

You can download Recipe Packet for this week’s share HERE . It includes some great summer salads and other ideas for making the veggies without too much time in the hot kitchen on a hot day.

We still have a few SUMMER SHARES for sale!! Follow the links above to sign up.

This week your share may include…

  • Arugula: This makes for a tasty quick summer salad, or try it with the fritatta from your recipe packet.
  • Basil: Most of the bunches this week will be the traditional green Genovese basil with a few bunches of Purple Basil mixed in for fun! Chop up basil and sprinkle it over pasta, fritattas, or even salad.
  • Cabbage: Time to make summer coleslaw with these beautiful little heads.
  • Green Beans: These are so tender & sweet! Quite the diversity – we’re picking green, yellow & purple beans this week.
  • Spring Onions: The cippollini onion is flat yellow heirloom Italian with a sweet mild flavor. Use the bulb as you would a regular onion and think of the green tops as giant scallions.
  • New Potatoes: The first golden Nicola are here. This potato variety is said to have a healthier glycemic index and high levels of phenolic acids.  It makes great home fries, and it’s good for you – what could be better!
  • Radish: These bi-color French Breakfast radish add a great crunch & color to summer salads
  • Summer Squash: All different kinds this week – different colors of patty pan, zucchini & crookneck.
Coming soon… I think we could have the first of the season Stupice tomatoes soon!!
