6th and 7th Farm Share
The harvests are getting bigger (and heavier) and the challenge of getting a Farm Share each week, is figuring out how to use all of your veggies. We love to make a quick stir fry with broccoli, scallions and summer squash, add some fresh herbs a little salt and pepper. This just might be the year of the Hakurei turnip! The beauty of this veggie is it’s versatility. Wash and slice thinly and put them on top of your salads for a crunchy addition. Here are some fun recipes for Hakurei. Quick Pickled Hakurei https://nesfp.org/world-peas-food-hub/world-peas-csa/produce-recipes/quick-pickled-hakurei-turnips This recipe for Glazed Hakurei Turnips is a favorite of ours, and incredibly quick and easy. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/glazed-hakurei-turnips-368274
One of my favorite sites for Vegetable Recipes is 101 Cookbooks http://www.101cookbooks.com/ She has thousands of recipes that are delicious and simple, and the photos are outstanding. Here are a few choice broccoli recipes. Coconut Broccoli Soup http://www.101cookbooks.com/archives/coconut-broccoli-soup-recipe.html And this incredible looking salad, bulked up with broccoli.

Flower Shares? We love flowers and have thought about adding a flower share for years. This year our flowers are gorgeous, so we’re making bouquets in the store for $10 or you can get a 6 week share for $50. The bouquets are long, beautifully arranged and wrapped in brown paper. Freeport members can add flowers and eggs to your box each week, just send me a note!
Our fall crops are looking beautiful, meat birds arrive next week, and we are beginning to gather medicinal herbs for our Fall Remedies. This means we will be offering our Milkweed Fall Share again this year. Each week you’ll receive Storage veggies;potatoes, onions, beets, carrots, cabbage, greens, winter squash, farm eggs, yogurt, a variety of cheeses from Wholesome Holmstead, and Bard Owl Creamery. Plus 4 of our Pasture Raised Meat Birds for your fall and winter meals. You’ll also receive our Fall Tonics such as Elderberry Syrup, Thyme Tincture and Fire Tonic made with organic Apple Cider Vinegar and lots of our medicinal herbs, cayenne peppers, and horseradish.
