NEWS FROM GOLDEN EARTHWORM FARM
In typical mid-summer fashion, your farmers are busy juggling the simultaneous tasks of planting, maintaining, irrigating and harvesting crops. Our cucumber and potato plants are looking great and I would expect to see them in the shares in the next 2-3 weeks. Check out our Facebook page for more photos and updates from the fields!
NOTES ON THE GOLDEN EARTHWORM VEGGIE SHARE
Zucchini is back…are you noticing a trend here? Zucchini plants produce at an alarming rate and must be picked daily. It’s amazing, really, that such small vines can produce so much! I’ve been making zucchini bread (an easy on-the-go breakfast) and a quick curried zucchini soup to use our own bounty. Scallions are great chopped in all types of summer salads. Toscano Kale may be a good candidate for a cold kale salad (recipe below). Swiss Chard will probably make its way into a quiche in our kitchen this week. I love quiche with a crisp lettuce salad on a hot summer afternoon. Beets, again, are so good in salads, but you may also like to try the recipe below for Borscht. Carrots, always delicious. Parsley, a good handful in summer salads is a must, but the extras can be thrown in the food processor with some olive oil, walnuts and fresh garlic for a quick pesto. Batavian Lettuce is a great crispy summer variety.
