The farm continues to blossom with abundance! We couldn’t do it all without your helping hands, from seeding, planting, harvesting, washing, bagging, and your spirited energy. This week, your basket includes cabbage, so Lucretia was particularly pleased to hear the broadcast “How Circadian Rhythms Give Vegetables A Healthy Boost” on NPR this week. Click the linked title above to hear it!
Thanks for your continued recipe ideas. We hope you enjoy this week’s recipes and pictures. If you click on an individual picture, you’ll get to see the pictures larger in a slide show! See you soon, Kate
