- Chinese cabbage
- Pac choi
- Salad Mix
It was suggested that I include a labeled photo of the food we are sending, to help those who aren't as familiar with the foods we grow. (The picture above is my first collage attempt with added text. Not bad, but I'll get better.)
I conducted a quick survey of this morning's workshare crew asking "What are your favorite ways to eat Chinese cabbage and pac choi?" The majority said in a stir fry. They also mentioned making egg roll stuffing (recipe here, though we modify it now with healthier options) or chopped up and added to the salad mix. I like to use the larger Chinese cabbage as a wrap for veggie tacos. Last year a CSA member recommended grilling the pac choi and sent me her instuctions and a picture (here).
Thank you for a successful first CSA pick-up last week! There are many little things that need to happen just right each week and I am grateful to all the workshares and members who help everything go smoothly.
We are in full panting mode on the farm right now. In just this past week, we've started, planted, or transplanted: dill, snap peas, cilantro, parsley, carrots, scallions, potatoes, tomatoes, and basil. After this week's harvest, we'll get back to planting more tomatoes, basil, broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage.
We are also trying to keep up on the weeding. Saw these little gems today as we weeded a row. All the ladies kept commenting "How CUTE!"
I apologize for this short newsletter and lack of photos. My efforts and attention have been focused elsewhere with the farm. I am looking forward to the second week of June when Shain and our son are out of school. We make a good team when we are home together for the summer.
Have a great week and ENJOY your veggies!
