Japanese Lettuce (Tokyo Bekana)
Chard and Beet Greens Mix
How To Use It
We use the chard and beet greens mix anyway we would use spinach, either cooked or raw. It makes a beautiful salad, is delicious steamed just like spinach or added to a fritata or quiche.
Green garlic can be used any way you would use scallions, leeks, or garlic. The greens are great for stock or they can be used like scallion tops.
Sorry for the tardy newsletter. Our internet was out from the thunderstorms yesterday. But thunderstorms mean rain and we've gotten almost 2 inches in the past week. Our crops are happier and we're glad to have a break from irrigating.
Our new refrigerated box truck arrived on Monday! A new (to us) market vehicle was part of a project we're funding with a grant from the Delaware County Economic Development office and from our crowd-sourced micro-loan from Kiva Zip. This sixteen-footer increases the amount we can bring to market six fold (!!) and gives us plenty of room to grow. For a while it will also serve as our primary cold storage, allowing us to increase harvest efficiency and improve quality. We named the truck Rosie, since she came from a nice couple who sells roses and hydrangeas in New Jersey.
