Hi friends! Your veggies this week are
mixed red and yellow onions
Where has summer gone? We are loosing light levels at a high rate, scrambling to bring in the bounty! Here is what cha got for the week: ENJOY!
Red and Yellow onion
Heirloom Tomatoes (Striped German)
The summer continues with hot days and warm nights out here in Hugo. Although the season can be long and challenging, I feel grateful that we are given such a long window to produce a variety of veggies. A couple more frost free weeks will allow all of the pumpkins and winter squash to ripen fully and give us a few more weeks of tomatoes. The heirloom tomato included in your box this week is called “Old German” or “Striped German”. This tomato is one of my favorites and was introduced to me by my late and great friend Peter. This man was a dedicated farmer, truly in it for the experience and to grow healthy food. I learned a lot from him…Thanks Pedro! I hope you enjoy this tomato, I am handing it down to you, keep a few seeds if you like it, grow it next year and keep the tradition alive!
The big fan-like greens in your baskets are called Collards, or collard greens. A dark, nutrient-dense items, Collards are made into a tasty side dish with a little heat, oil, and salt. They balance out a meal of Bacon or Pork Chops. We put a leaf, minus the stem, in our morning fruit smoothie, blended well, of course, to start the day with some chlorophyll, vitamins, and minerals. I hope you enjoy them.

Hi gang of healthy eaters! Hope you are enjoying the diversity coming on in the baskets. I haven’t been too good about posting recipes this year, so I will try to do better. The only different item is the bok choy, I like to add to a brothy soup at the end, grill, or saute with other veggies. Here is what else you have for the week:
Good Morning Folks
There are two unusual items this week. Mizuna is the frilly leafed green. This is a mild mustard green that we like to fry up with pork chops. With a little heat it cooks down a lot. The other new item is Bok Choi. This is a common ingredient in Asian stir fry. We hope you enjoy them!
Oh Yeah, Sweet Corn. The ears aren’t big, but very sweet!
Hey Friends, Hope you are all enjoying the bounty that is coming on! Our posts become smaller and smaller the later we work into the evening at the height of summer, but we will try to get this up here on Friday evening if not early Saturday that way you know what you’re picking up! So here are your veggies for the week:
1 Yellow onion
Have a great week!
Good morning to all of you,
I hope you have been finding a way to enjoy the heat. I try to save it up for the winter and take the constant sweating as a free sauna. The tomatoes, peppers, and melons are loving it and should start finding their way into your boxes regularly soon.
This week we purchased some beautiful kale and cabbage from our friends Dean and Brook from Promiseland Farm. Our kale was attacked by literally tens of thousands of flea beetles. These tiny black little guys left the kale looking like it was shot by many tiny shotguns. There was more air than kale left. Oh well, next time!
You all take care and enjoy!
We hope you are all enjoying your produce as much as we enjoy growing it! Thanks for helping me have an awesome, although challenging at time, job. The beets in your basket this week are called Chioggia, from a town/region in Italy. When you cut them open you will see a beautiful candy cane striped pattern. These beets are nice shredded in salads as they don’t bleed and turn everything dark red. Also great roasted.
We send out thanks to our friend Dave, from who we purchased these organic hydroponic beefsteak tomatoes that you will find in your basket. Our tiller broke so we weren’t able to prepare our greenhouse in time and then the 7 year old plastic ripped apart one windy day this spring. So early tomatoes wasn’t in the cards this year. That’s life, I guess. At the time I didn’t have the money to fix either item. We are building a new greenhouse this year so next year will be a different story!
So take care and enjoy the nutritious ingredients this week.
