This Week’s Harvest
Red Round Radishes
Welcome to week one of our 2020 harvest!
We’ve approached the time when all aspects of the farm operation are in full swing- aka Go Time. We’ve got weekly seeding in the greenhouse, planting in the field, weeding in the beds, a seemingly never ending list of tractor work and now we are adding harvest and delivery into the mix. Hooray! That’s the best part- the culmination of all this hard work. We hope this food satisfies your taste buds, gets creative juices flowing in the kitchen, and maybe even gives you peace of mind.
Between the busy farm season, kids suddenly at home all the time, COVID concerns, and protests across the country it is a very physically and mentally taxing time. The history of farming certainly has a role to play in the current unrest. I will link to a Reveal podcast, Losing Ground, that we found important and eye-opening that investigates systemic discrimination within the USDA.
So if you happen to have an interest and an hour, give it a listen. Stay safe and be well!
Pasta with brown butter and wilted greens (Your share is full of greens this would work for-arugula, braising mix, spinach. Try a mix!)
Provencal Soup with Greens (Your share is full of greens this would work for-arugula, braising mix, spinach. Try a mix!)
Roasted Radishes with Green Goddess Dressing (use both types of radish. half the red round radishes and cut the watermelon radish in 4ths or 8ths)
Coming Up Next Week (our best guess…..) spinach, dill, braising greens, red butter lettuce, carrots, watermelon radish, salad mix, parsley
