Week 2: April 14th
This Week's Harvest
As always, nothing is guaranteed. These are the items that are "in season" and are anticipated to be ready this week (which may or may not be available at the CSA).
Small = 4-6 items per week ($25/wk)
Medium = 7-9 items per week ($35/wk)
Large = 10-12 items per week ($45/wk)
Lettuce - Beautiful baby lettuce. We have baby romaine (rouge d'hiver) and a salad mix which consists of a mixture of 5 varieties. Great for everything from salads to sandwhiches!
Mustard Greens - These are simply the BEST mustard greens on the planet. The variety is called Red Splendor and you will never find this in the store: Mild, smooth and absolutely delicious! CLICK HERE FOR RECIPES!
Radishes - Oh, we love our radishes! Crispy and delicious. We love them roasted! Weekly, daily...we can't get enough of these!
Carrots- The best carrots around! You will be amazed by how much flavor our carrots pack. Many of our members have commented that they cannot go back to store-bought after tasting our pure, beyond organic, spring carrots!
Spinach - There is little doubt in our members' minds that this spinach is the best they've ever had! The sad part is that it grows slowly and isn't regenerating quick enough to give us an abundance. But it's coming...oh, it's coming! Enjoy this spinach raw before deciding to cook it...it's just that good! Ps. if you look closely at the leaves you'll see the beautiful sugar crystals!
Barley Wheat Grass - Many of our members absolutely love our barley grass and use it religiously. We hope you take the time to learn and enjoy this most amazingly nutritious green! More nutritious than wheat grass and less bitter, barley grass is used mostly for juicing. However, I, Yosef (and many of our team members) love to use it as an energy and nutrition
Red Russian Kale - The absolute best kale we grow! Sweet and ready to wilt and add to nearly any dish or to be eaten raw in a salad. Delicious!
Arugula - Arugula is on of our favorite greens to saute and add to a stew, mashed potatoes, or simply as a yummy side! Arugula is also an amazing addition to homemade pesto! Check out this article for more info!
Dried Herbs - Basil, dill, mint and fennel (our herb room smells like heaven!😇).
Radish Microgreens - Next to the barley grass and the sunshoots, radish microgreens are some of the most nutritiously-dense items we grow on the farm and not only that, but during our annual survey last year, they ranked as the #1 most requested and love item we grow! They have a fantastic bite to them, last considerably long in the refrigerator and are beautiful in appearance.
Pea Shoots - One of the most desired and sought after items we provide are these pea shoots! Quite literally the best you added to any dish or salad. Our favorite way is to add them to stews and soups. A perfect topper too! Here are four fun ways to use Pea Shoots: http://blog.bostonorganics.com/4-fun-ways-to-use-pea-shoots
Broccoli Microgreens - Last week we told you that Radish Microgreens were the #1 most loved item we grow, well, these microgreens weren't on the list then! I have a sneaking suspicion that these microgreens are the real winners!
Sunshoots - Our sunshoots are certainly some of the nicest, most high-quality sunshoots you will ever find (that actually goes for all our microgreens). They are one of the most beloved items we grow as well and a regular staple to our CSA. Here are some ideas to use your sunnies this week: https://www.martinsgardenacf.com/sunflower-shoots-recipes
Living Herbs - We have an abundance of beautiful living herbs for you. Choose from cilantro, oregano, parsley and more. Each plant counts as one serving.
