The fall greens season has arrived! this week we have arugula and salad mix in the shares, and the lettuces, kale, beets, carrots, and radishes are growing like crazy with this spectacular weather. It also makes our job even better than usual when the weather is so nice. The fall and winter share crops are all planted and doing very well, and we are expecting to get our annual supply of winter squash from the amish at Rich Hill, MO this weekend.
In the shares today:
Ginger!! this is fresh baby ginger from our greenhouses, fabulous flavor, very little fiber, and beautiful… Try googling recipes for baby ginger, we’ve enjoyed it in stir frys, kale and ginger saute’d, and with bananas on top of pancakes.
Japanese Salad Turnips: crisp, juicy, and mild. great fresh in a salad, also fine for stir frying, but don’t overcook, as they tend to get mushy when overcooked.
Cabbage from Bear Creek Organic farm in Oceola
Arugula; very tasty, with just the right amount of peppery zing
Purple Peruvian Potatoes
Arugula or Salad Greens
Cucumber or squash
Enjoy the beginning of the fall veggies, and thanks for trusting us to be your farmers.
