July 14 CSA Contents

Alex Ekins

This weeks contents include...

Chia Micro Greens Simply one of the most nutrient dense plants you can eat.  These are seriously loaded in omega 3's.  Better than any vitamin you can take.

Not sprouted, grown in soil! 

Neon Lights Swiss Chard Packed with phytonutrients shown in the deep color.  

Bull's Blood Beets 

Roast for 45 minutes at 450, remove and glaze with honey and THYME. 

Siberian Kale I had chopped kale in chicken tacos.  Just saying. 

Golden Ball Turnips The last of the turnips.  Maybe not a crowd pleaser.  Try roasted under a chicken with many other vegetables.  

Collard Greens 

Southern Style

1. Cook bacon in a 10-qt. stockpot over medium heat 10 to 12 minutes or until almost crisp. Add onion, and sauté 8 minutes; add ham and garlic, and sauté 1 minute. Stir in broth and remaining ingredients. Cook 2 hours or to desired degree of tenderness.

Cascadia Snap Peas I Love growing snap peas.  They are one of the first seeds in the ground each year.  You can eat the whole pod! Great sweet crunchy snack.

Half Dozen Eggs The eggs return!  I gave the hens a good talking to about their performance last week.  And Aaron, I still owe you half a dozen. Sorry buddy!

I figured I still need to up my egg game so I picked up 20 new chicks.  These little ladies are six days old and will grow up to lay green and brown eggs in about 5 months.

Welcome to the farm little sweeties. 

Thyme 

Basil
