In your share this week:
- Japanese Turnips
- Chinese Cabbage
- Pac Choi
- Salad Mix - 2 bags
As promised, food is growing, more is ready to harvest, and your shares are getting bigger. Enjoy!
Projects around the farm continue to be focused around planting. We've taken out multiple rows of our very earliest plants and replanted them with warm weather crops. Greenhouse 6 is also transitioning one row at time from spring to summer. Photo above shows how we have inter-planted the pepper plants in the openings left as we harvest the pac choi.
This is greenhouse 4, each time we want to plant another row, we string off a section and weed out the long row. Then we plant. In this photo, we have 4 rows planted. But as of today, two more rows have been weeded and planted. Only the section on the far right (south) remains. And so the process goes for each and every greenhouse, all 7 of them. "One row at a time." My motto.
Planted this week: French fillet beans, pole beans, peppers, cauliflower, head cabbage, butter bib head lettuce, and probably more I'm forgetting.
Ideas for your food this week:
- the large Chinese cabbage leaves make very nice wraps (filled with anything really, but think along the lines of spring rolls, or veggie burritos, etc.)
- we like to make egg roll stuffing using most everything in the share (something similar to the recipe posted here, though now we totally make it up as we go by adding whatever is on hand - chopped cabbage, pac choi, turnip greens, even radish greens with shredded turnips, carrots, ginger and other seasonings
- Shain made a wonderful roasted potato and turnip green soup this week.
- Stir Fry
- One of our workshares is making pot stickers today.
- I'm hungry.
Have a great week and ENJOY your veggies!
