The record-setting rains of May have ended. We’re starting to catch up with outdoor chores of mowing, shredding, and hopefully tilling and planting later this week as the soil dries out. Last week the rain kept us inside catching up on routine maintenance of the tractor and website work.
Here’s our expected harvest for Week 10:
Full share: Zucchini or squash, Beans, Turnips, Okra or bell peppers, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Cabbage, Basil, Dill, Cilantro flowers, Kale or chard, Lettuce, Shallots, Onion, Garlic
Half share: Zucchini or squash, Beans, Turnips, Cucumbers, Basil, Dill, Cilantro flowers, Kale or chard, Shallots, Onion
Here’s a super easy, family favorite recipe! You can use your greens in this recipe and it’s easily adapted to include almost any veggie or herb! Add onion or shallots for some extra flavor too!
Sausage and Penne Pasta
1 box Penne Pasta
1 package Eckrich sausage links
1 Tablespoon crushed garlic
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 bunch Swiss chard or kale
grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
Cook and drain pasta. Meanwhile, slice sausage and brown in skillet with olive oil and garlic. Wash greens and tear into smaller pieces if necessary. Add greens to sausage a little at a time (they will cook down so you can continue adding more). You may need to add a little more olive oil as you add the greens. Add sausage and greens to pasta. Salt to taste. Sprinkle with Parmesan after serving.
