This week the bean harvest is hitting full stride as the blackberry harvest begins to wane. We’re also posting a soup recipe one of our members prepared last week. We welcome your recipe ideas. If you have a favorite or try a new one that uses several of the varieties in a weekly share, please send it to us so we can share with all farm share members.
This week we begin delivering pasture-raised whole chicken with our weekly shares. These are raised with great care by our friends at Humble Rooster Farm on non-GMO, soy-free feed. When you sign up for our weekly produce shares, just add the chicken along with your choice of eggs and/or grass fed beef and have it all conveniently delivered right to your front door.
Here’s what’s expected in our Spring week 7 shares:
(Shares may vary slightly depending on field/garden conditions)
Half Share: Beans (double portion), Basil, 2 Onions, Chard, Carrots (double portion), Beets
Full Share: Blackberries, Lettuce, Basil, Beans (double portion), Carrots (double portion), Beets, 2 Onions, Chard, Fennel or amaranth leaves, Squash or Italian Dandelion Greens, Dill, edible flowers
If you enjoy preserving vegetables, this would be a great week to store up some beans and carrots! Try freezing, canning or pickling this week!
Here’s the recipe one of our members prepared last week – many of the ingredients are in this week’s shares too: Creamy Fennel and Greens Soup
