Katelyn and Anna picking spinach for your share; our herd of Red Devon cattle in the background.
Your first share of the season contains:
2 small heads of bibb lettuce, 1/2# of spinach, 1 bunch of green garlic, 1 bunch of cilantro, 2 pounds of sweet potatoes, 1 pound of Turkey Red wheat all-purpose flour, Strawberries!
The strawberries were picked on Monday and stored in our cooler but are VERY perishable. They need to be eaten right away or refrigerated and eaten within 2 days or frozen. We did not wash them so they have some pollen dust on them.
The flour was milled by Farm and Sparrow and is wheat that we grew last year here at the farm. It is an heirloom variety. If you are unable to eat wheat, just exchange your flour for another item.
The sweet potatoes were grown here last year and stored over winter. They are at their sweetest.
Try making a pesto of the green garlic, cilantro, and some spinach with salt and olive oil.
Please be sure to bring a bag with you to transfer your vegetables into. The berries and flour will not be in the box so be sure to talk to us and get those items! In the weeks to come you can return berry boxes for us to re-use.
Here we go! We hope you enjoy!
