Hello veggie lovers
We hope everyone is happy with their boxes. You're feedback is always welcomed and appreciated. There's lots of tasty stuff coming up and new veggies ready this week. We're getting to the best part of the season. This weeks box is pretty exciting. I also want to let everyone know that we'll be at the White Rock Farmers Market on Sunday. Please come by and say hi.
Onto this weeks box. We have cherry tomatoes! These were my niece's favourite vegetable last year. We also threw in a little basil (Fawlty?). Also in the box are a mix of gold and red beets. The tops can be cooked like spinach. The bottoms can be steamed, boiled, roasted, or made into soup, or shredded in salad. Super versatile they are. I love to eat them steamed then topped with a little butter and pepper. OK, a lot of butter. : )
There was quite a bit of Rainbow Swiss Chard so that's included this week. Same family as the beet and they can be cooked like beet greens. The Black kale was also ready so there's a little of that as well.
Our squash plants are doing very well. There's both zucchini and a yellow scallopini type (aka patty pan) this week. Like my friends the beets, you can do almost anything with them. Patty pans are awesome stuffed. Finally for our salad lovers there's romaine and red loose leaf lettuce, carrots, and cucumbers.
Thank you all again for your support.
