Welcome to Week 3! What could be in your basket this week:

Cucumber/Lemon Cucumber
Round and yellow, a perfect serving for one or two people. Lemon cucumbers have a thin skin with a milder flavor than a regular cucumber’s.

Carrots
The carrots are looking great this week, they are tender and crisp. Store your carrots in a bag in the fridge.

Purple Beans
Everybody will get purple beans this week!

Zucchini/Eight Ball/Patty Pan
The summer squash family has lots of vitamin A, few calories, and it’s simple to cook. You will have one type of summer squash in your basket!

Peas
Give (raw) peas a chance! Why not try these in a salad while they’re still fresh.

Jalapeno Peppers
The jalapeño is a medium-sized chili pepper, especially good in Mexican recipes. Store in a paper bag in the refrigerator.

Kale/ Swiss Chard
This leafy green is full of vitamin A, K & C. With this hearty green you can make a salad ahead of time and it will still be fresh for a few days.

Beet
Beets are sweet and delicious. Check out our Pinterest link below to for a guide on how to prep beets and some delicious recipes.

 

Also, be sure to check out our Farm Basket Recipes at Pinterest . We have pinned delicious recipes for the wonderful produce found in your farm basket and also a guide on how long different produce will last.

The contents of the baskets may change through the week as we monitor the fields and harvest what is at its peak.
