Welcome to Week 6! What could be in your basket this week:

Brokali (no, that’s not a typo!)
Half kale, half broccoli. There’s no ‘waste’ with this one – both the florets, leaves and stems are a tasty treat. The stems taste like the best asparagus you’ve ever had!

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

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.

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

Purple/Green Beans (Large Baskets)
A new batch of beans has just ripened! Check out our Pinterest page for some great ideas on how to use this versatile bean.

Cucumber/Lemon Cucumber (Small Baskets)
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.

Tomatoes
Orange and yellow tomatoes are gorgeous, we love their eye-popping color in salads, and they are also less acidic and sweeter than red tomatoes.

Lettuce
Perfect for making a fresh salad! In order to extend the life of your lettuce: fill a bowl with cold water, submerge the leaves, spin them in a salad dryer (or in a dish towel), then stick them in the drawer.

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 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.

Drop off/pick up date:
Thursday, SEPTEMBER 10, 4:30-5:15PM at the TMG back entrance.
