Harvest #7, July 8, 2011
OK, we have a lot of different items all ready for harvest for this week. We’ll just lay em out for you and let you choose. Its like a farmer’s market here at House in the Woods and you get to choose from all the beautiful options. If you want more than 8 items, extra items are available for $3.50, so you can’t lose.
Select 8 from the following items for this Friday:
Fresh garlic (Well offer the seconds/splits for a few weeks, use it soon, or put peeled cloves in a jar with olive oil in the frig; the beauties are curing, for later CSA weeks and for sale by the pound next month)
Beets! We MUST pull the beets!
Heirloom tomatoes (we don’t know what kind of quantities we have yet, but they are coming. We’ll see!)
fennel, try it sliced thin on the grill. The last week of fennel.
Italian eggplant including specialty Italian called Beatrice (its pink!)
Sweet or Thai basil (I made pesto with Thai basil and I LOVE it. Its a richer taste, almost spicey in a very good way)
scallions (almost gone)
lettuce (a new smaller batch of lettuce, red and romaine)
garlic scapes (if there is still interest in scapes, we still have some…)
chard (oh sweet healthy endlessly available chard)
bok choy maybe
