Summer Share, Week #2

Posted 6/18/2018 2:42pm by Christy and Chris Kantlehner.

Good Evening Everyone!

Here's a jump start on your menu planning for the week:

Summer Share, Week #2:

  • Bunch of Carrots
  • 2 Head of Lettuce 
  • Bunch of Scallions
  • Bunch of White Salad Turnips
  • Cooking Greens, you choose 2: Bok Choy, Kale, Chard, Broccoli Rabe
  • 2lbs of Spring Roots: Fennel, Kohlrabi, and Green Garlic

I love raw vegetables, but sometimes you have to cook, even in the summer! Here's a few recipes that I've been looking at today while I was working on the retail order for the farm. I've decided that we are choosing the Broccoli Rabe because I want to make Spicy Sausage and Broccoli Rabe. I'll be picking up some sausages from Pat's Pastured to add to the recipe either Chorizo or Kielbasa, super simple! And I think I'll be making a chicken on my grill and using some lemon and Fennel as aromatics Roast Chicken with Lemon and Fennel. And here's a great (short!) article on Kohlrabi if you are looking for inspiration: 5 Tasty Ways to Prepare Kohlrabi Basically, you can prepare Kohlrabi any way you prepare potatoes!

Picking up is simple, bring your bags and make your choices. We are there to help you identify what you are looking for. This season, Farmers Chris and Christy would like you to have as much choice as they can reasonably work into the Share. Because we are offering so many things to choose from, we cannot always guarantee that your first choice will be available every week. We hope that encourages you to try something new! We can guarantee freshly picked, locally grown, delicious vegetables and we are sure you will be happy with the variety over the course of the Summer Share season

With that in mind, if you do not want to pack your own share, there is another option. For $5 a week you can have Farmer's Choice! We will make a selection for you and pack it in the cooler waiting for you to come and pick up the share. If you are interested in that, please respond to that email.

Pick up is Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday at the Tent 10 - 6. Your pick up day is whichever you signed up for originally. The Farmstand will be open when you are there and Jordan Brother's Seafood Truck will be there today from 2 - 6. 

See you at the Farm!
