Dear CSA Member,
I hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth of July! It turned out to be a beautiful day!
As the leafy greens are winding down the Squash, Cucumber, Eggplant and other summer vegetables are ramping up! The summer vegetables are all flowering and they are all growing beautifully. Check out our Facebook and Instagram for photos.
New this week is fresh mint. Here are some delicious ways to use mint. http://www.elizabethrider.com/10-ways-use-fresh-mint/ One of our favorites is making a mint ice tea. Great for a refreshing Hot Summer Day! You will also be getting Fennel this week. Here is a link with some great ways to prepare and eat fresh fennel. http://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-culture/five-ways-to-eat-fresh-fennel-78022417/
Escarole will be coming this week as well. It looks smaller to lettuce but it is an Italian cooking green. It pairs well will Chicken and beans. It is very popular being cooked with white beans. It is a bitter green but has a milder flavor when cooked.
If you have any other recipes you would like to share please email directly to the farm. We can add them to our website.
