Welcome to week #6!
In Your Share This Week
- Cabbage, caraflex
- Chard, rainbow
- Potatoes, new red-gold
Carrots: We have started our weekly bulk carrot (and beet) harvests, so you can expect to be receiving them fairly consistently through the end of the season. We are excited to be getting into these more hearty root vegetables; they have a variety of uses, are nice and filling, and absolutely delicious. Here is a picture from last year of Tabitha washing carrots with our root washing machine, the Wilsi (short for Wilson), with which she can wash up to 200lbs. an hour!
New Potatoes: Like last week, we decided to bag these potatoes unwashed so as to preserve their delicate skins. Enjoy!
Rainbow Chard: Rainbow chard bunches are one of my favorite things to harvest, because the fields are always so gorgeous! Cook it with carrots, cabbage and potatoes to create a delight for the eyes and belly. Here are some pictures of us in our chard field Monday morning:
