This coming Saturday will probably be the last Saturday of U-Pick Strawberries for the season. The berries are still bountiful, but they will slow down over the next week or so. If you can come mid-week, we’ll also be open Tuesday & Wednesday (9 to 2) and Friday (9 to 5) this week for U-Pick. On Saturday, we’ll be open from 9 to 5 and there will be a farm tour at 1pm. Hope to see you there!
Super beautiful, healthy spinach! This will cook down quickly. I like to put it in a pan with a little bit of water until it is soft and wilted. Then I turn off the heat and serve it with butter (or olive oil) and salt & pepper. Simple and delicious. This is also great for spinach salads!
Storage: In an airtight container/bag in the refrigerator. Uses: Cooked or Raw in salad. When to use: Within 4 days.
Long a staple of the Southern United States, collard greens, unlike their cousins kale and mustard greens, have a very mild, sweet flavor. Collard wraps are all the rage, and I have to admit that they are delicious! See recipes below. Also wonderful slow-cooked or added to soup.
Storage: In an airtight container/bag in the refrigerator. Uses:Raw/Cooked When to use: Within 5 days.
The whole barn smells like cilantro this week! It’s one of these love-it-or-hate-it herb greens. I happen to love it. The halloumi recipe below is a star, and so is the cilantro pesto. I also love making my chicken soup with a bunch of cilantro and garlic. I hope you’ll love it too! Cilantro will “droop” easily if it gets dehydrated. I do recommend standing it up in a glass of water (bouquet-style) in the fridge.
Storage: Standing up in a glass of water in the fridge — or in an airtight container/bag in the refrigerator. Uses: Raw or cooked. When to use:Within 3 days.
Boston (Butter) Lettuce – RED & GREEN!
This is it for the Boston lettuce! After this, we may take a break for a week or so and then we’ll be moving on to Romaine varieties!
Storage: In an airtight container/bag in the refrigerator. Uses: Raw in a salad. When to use: Within a week.
A new variety of radish! Try roasting them if they’re too spicy for you. They are delicious and mild when heated!
Storage: In an airtight container/bag in the refrigerator. Separate the roots from the greens first- then they can be stored in the same bag. Uses: Raw or cooked. When to use: Within 5 days.
We don’t usually repeat crops like this, but this is a new planting of bok choi that is ready to harvest and it is so beautiful right now!
