As in previous seasons, the Harvest Notes are posted online. Read about some of the challenges the farmers faced this spring and some of their suggestions about eating the items in this week’s share.
This season, the farm is trying something new by offering choices for some of the items. Notice the “or” which means you can choose your favourite of two items, or try something new. This is their best guess as to what will be available this week – the farmers point out that “these early season harvests are a great time to have your favorite salad dressing on hand!” Check out the links for some new recipes – and the annual favourite, kale chips!
- Scallions or Garlic Chives
- Kale or Chard
- Bok Choi (the linked recipe also uses scallions)
- Lettuce Heads
- Salad Mix
- Mint (also using kale) or Oregano
If you have questions about the veggies – how to serve or store them, perhaps? – Adamah farmers will be at the pickup to meet members, answer questions, and sell pickles and jams. They will also have a market at the West Hartford JCC on Sunday June 14th during the free 100 minutes of yoga from 9:00-10:40am. Other local artisans and vendors will also be featured near the front entrance of the JCC, so if you are a Bet group member and miss them this week, or if you have friends who want to buy pickles and jams and cannot come on Thursday, stop by the JCC this Sunday morning.
