Veggies In the Box–July 20

Hello fruit, you’re looking fine!

Tomorrow kicks off our fruit shares– plus we have our monthly special products pick-up (beer, soap, fish and kombucha), and Lewis Waite Farm orders. All pickups are July 20th at Sunnyside Community Services from 5-8pm.

And on to the veggies for this week–you know the drill, store them in an airtight plastic bag in the fridge…

Walla Walla Onions – Juicy, sweet and perfect for grilling. The stems can be discarded or used as a stock. Use within a week.

Beets – Try them raw or cooked, or our summer favorite: grilled! Use within a week.

Swiss Chard – A hearty summer green, this is one that is not meant to be eaten raw. Try this recipe from Golden Earthworm if you’re a newbie to this veggie. Use within a week.

Green Cabbage – This cabbage is great as a slaw, but can also be used stuffed, baked, in soups or salads. Use within 5 days.

Red Batavian Lettuce – A nice summer lettuce, this variety is similar to Romaine, but a slightly softer texture. Use within a week.

Parsley – A great fresh flavor and packed full of nutrients. Use within  a week.

Cucumber – Another round to keep you cool during the heat waves. Use within a week.

Summer Squash or Zucchini – These have had a bit of a mystery growing season, so we’re not sure when they’ll make it into the box.

Please note that any boxes not picked up by 8pm will be donated to SCS, and items are subject to change. Look for Golden Earthworm Organic Farm CSA on Facebook for more recipes from members!
