With summer weather comes summer crops, and there is no better way to ease into the season with the cilantro, green beans and summer squash in your shares this week.
- Beets: Your beets this week come with their beautiful crisp greens attached, and you may use these as you would chard in salads and sautés.
- Carrots: Your carrots are tops off starting this week, and they will be that way through the summer and fall. You may also notice that some of your carrots are broken in half. We are still learning the ways and experimenting with our new undercutting root harvest implement, and had a whole bed get snapped for the first time. The carrots are still big, beautiful, and delicious and should be usable and enjoyable.
- Summer Squash: We grow two types of summer squash at SIO, Yellow Patty Pan and Green Zucchini, and you will see both in your shares through out the season. They can be used interchangeably in nearly any recipe, and will be in your share regularly for the summer stretch ahead.
