NEWS FROM GOLDEN EARTHWORM FARM
Zucchini and Cipollini Onions are back for another week. Radicchio will also be in the share again. If you haven’t tried it on the grill, you should! Broccoli OR Cabbage – You’ll receive one or the other this week. The broccoli has started to flower quickly in this heat so much of it can’t be harvested. Red Beets are great in salads this time of year. You can grate them raw if you don’t want to heat up your kitchen—or you can quickly boil them until tender and then cool to slice alongside some walnuts and goat cheese and a light vinaigrette.  Carrots are back and the Magenta Lettuce is one of my summer favorites—so crunchy and refreshing on a hot day. Romaine Lettuce means “Caesar Salad for dinner tonight” to me! Happy 4th of July and bon appetit!

NOTES ON THE GOLDEN EARTHWORM VEGGIE SHARE
This heat has forced many of our crops into overdrive. The greens are growing so quickly that we’ve had to double up in the shares these past couple weeks. This is why you’re getting TWO heads of lettuce this week!

We started our great garlic harvest over the weekend and the bulbs are now being tied up and hung in the barn to dry for a few weeks (see picture!).
