FRESH PRODUCE THURSDAY and First CSA Share!

This week’s Share:

Brassica’s

Happy Rich Broccolini- 8 oz (shorter stalks, sweeter leaves, tasty raw, but shines cooked!)

BC1611- 8 oz (longer stems, round heads, better cooked)

Broccoli/ Cauliflower Mix-1#

Summer squash mix- 2#

Swiss chard

Greybull Valley Lettuce

Snack cucumbers- 8oz

Brassica’s! You’ve got them this first week— Brassica’s!  Family of broccoli, cauliflower, kohlrabi, cabbages, and radishes!  Yes, radishes!…distant relative…but let Brassica’s get heat stressed and the radish flavor comes through!

This week’s Brassicas are 2 kinds of mini-broccoli AKA broccolini, Happy Rich and BC2611.  And a bag of cut-up broccoli and cauliflower.  (What to do with 14 heads and 16.6 pounds—)

Store in cold refrigerator protected from refrigeration damage (plastic bag).  Eat steamed, boiled, grilled, roasted, or raw if you must.  Cook Broccolini with the leaves on.  My fav is cooked in the cast iron skillet (steam first with a bit of water to tenderize, then add olive oil and season), with steamed as my second choice.  

Summer squash is zucchini, Zephyr (yellow with Green tip), Costa Romanesco (striped zucchini heirloom).  Wash first…a little gritty from a midnight rain that splashed up dirt onto the plants.  We do not normally wash your veggies as it introduces moisture which shortens their life span and can introduce bad bacteria.  Veggies have a protective coating—as a general rule, wash before use. 

Snack cucumbers, AKA Harmonies, European Picklers.  One of our favorites: good small to large (any size), no bitter tough skin (thus ‘snack’), and prolific (we’ll have them all season!). 

Swiss chard is healthy as a member of the same family as spinach and beets.  Equally nutritious cooked or raw.  Great Swiss chard salad at http://www.lloydcraftfarms.com , recipe tab.  Secret is how Swiss chard is cut (chiffonade- roll leaves and cut into thin shreds) and tenderized with an oil and vinegar dressing.  

Next week’s shared should have peppers and cherry tomatoes!! Stay tuned!  Still a few spots in the CSA if you’d like a dependable supply of organically raised garden veggies for up to 15 weeks— text 431-1219 or Register online and pay at Bee Healthy.

Garden Update- Bee Healthy and CSA

Soil temps finally warmed enough in the garden to set out some of the deluge of plants growing in the greenhouse–Hooray!! Happy, happy plants! At the present we have ALL the early Brassica’s (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage) in their spot in the garden. Yesterday we set out all the eggplant and peppers…2,160 plants (or thereabouts)…3 types eggplant, European Sweet peppers, Bell Peppers of all colors, Sweetie snack peppers and Shishito’s, and 7 types of Hot Peppers (Jalapeno, Habanero, Hungarian Hot Wax, Paprika, Serrano, and Cayenne).

TOMORROW: Tomatoes…1,248 plants…and let’s hope the season blesses us with a harvest this year! (2020 was the first time in 13 years the season was late starting and cut short with an early fall-) And that is where we are with the garden the first week of June. (Cherokee pictured below!)

Still time to join the CSA– info at http://www.lloydcraftfarms.com, sign up on-line, and pay by check or cash at Bee Healthy. Invest in our garden and your health.

Doing your own garden? YAY! Consider a Leap-Frog share for $290 to supplement your garden and add things you may not grow…such as melons, Brussels sprouts (110 days with a unique growing culture), tomato varieties new to you, fennel, 5 kinds of cucumbers, winter squash in the fall, fresh onions, lots of broccoli and cauliflower, and a good variety of cabbages…much more to mention! (Consider the CSA as a back up plan to your garden efforts…a member several years ago dropped out of the CSA to grow her own. 3 weeks into the CSA she sent me a picture of a weedy patch…”This is my garden…too late to join yours?” We made room!)

The High Tunnels are readying for their first major harvest tomorrowDwarf Bok Choi, Kale, more Rhubarb, and fresh herbs. Red Radishes and Black Summer Bok Choi, as well as the Swiss Chard should be ready for next week. Green Onions are several weeks behind. (Tomatoes and cucumbers are in experimental stage…honing our skill for next winter when we attempt to tackle raising tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, and zucchini in our 45×60 greenhouse which has been in construction for 4 years. The new flooring–heated floor–came in this week. Hope to finish it this summer in time to plant for the winter crops that normally come out of Mexico!)

The Asian Delight Dwarf Bok Choi will go into the Special Boxes this Thursday, along with Greybull Valley Greenleaf lettuce, 2 Rio Star Grapefruit, Cauliflower, and 3# of ORG Red Potatoes. To use in cooking your Bok Choi we are including ORG Garlic, ORG Green Onions, and a branching of ORG Ginger Root! Should be a great box with a lot of potential for $30. (We have a limited supply of a sheet called: “How to Cook Bok Choi, 3 Ways”. Ask for it by name…)

Other fruits and veggies for Thursday Fresh Produce Day will be ORG Blueberries, Kale and Rhubarb from Lloyd Craft Farms, ORG Crimini Bella Mushrooms, new case of ORG Red Cabbage, Fresh ORG Turmeric, more ORG Tomato-on-Vine, Earthbound ORG Green Beans (ready to cook), Organic Girl Baby Spinach and Organic Girl 50/50 Mix, as well as the usual ORG Pink Lady Apples, Heirloom Oranges, ORG Lemons, ORG Bananas, AvoTerra Avocados, Onions, Potatoes, Carrots, and the last of the Watermelon Radishes (all ORG).

Happy Memorial Day! WE ARE OPEN…Veggies Have Been Ordered for Thursday Fresh Produce Day–

Memorial Day is an important day to remember…Not that we want to loose Americans in any battle or war, but time has shown again and again that man-kind is prone to greed and destruction. We need to stand our ground for freedom while advancing peace and prosperity. It’s a daily vigilance beyond a single day once a year–

We are open for your grocery and produce needs on this holiday. We think of ourselves as your local small grocer, and good food is a daily endeavor! Check out the new line of uncured, antibiotic clean meats from Bilinski (chicken mild sausages), Mulay’s (German Franks, Brauts, and Italian Sausage), Applegate (Roasted Chicken Slices, Pepperoni), and True Story (Fully Cooked, thinly cut Chicken Breasts)…

Coming next week more Mary’s Chicken Breasts and Whole Chickens, restock of Beeler’s Pork Links and Sausage, Thousand Hills Beef Sticks, and Niman Ranch products. We are thoroughly excited about being able to provide good, clean meats…to match our good, clean vegetables…and try our new Fizzy Teas from Teakoe and healthy Olipop Classic Cola and Root Beers.

Boxes this week: Greybull Valley Greenleaf Lettuce (with the root ball to sustain freshness), Organic Girl Baby Spinach, Cauliflower, ORG Clip-top Carrots, ORG Cucumber, ORG Yellow Onion, 1# ORG Zucchini, ORG Tomato-on-Vine, ORG Rio Star Grapefruit, and garden fresh Oregano & Savory from Lloyd Craft Farms. (Additional Grapefruit and Cucumbers for sale!)

Heirloom Oranges are still available! Wahoo! Season usually ends in May, but maybe the cooler weather has extended their availability. (These are the best oranges! California Heirloom orange orchards have shrunk in size as newer varieties were developed that yielded heavier and produced longer. Flavor and juiciness were sacrificed!)

Stop in and visit! Monday-Friday, 10:00 am to 5:30 pm, Saturday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. 635 Big Horn Ave, Worland– Right on the main street!

FRESH PRODUCE THURSDAY– Group A Boxes THIS WEEK–

Good Morning and Happy MONDAY! Giving you’all a head’s up on what to expect for NEW Produce at Bee Healthy this Thursday and what’s planned for the Group A Boxes– MORE Avocados on Thursday, as well as ORG Tomatoes on the Vine, ORG Starkrimson Pears, ORG Cilantro, ORG Cucumbers, ORG Red Onions, ORG JALAPENOs (10# total for your Poppers!), ORG Orange Bell Peppers, and ORG Zucchini.

BOXES: Organic Girl 50/50 Spring Mix and Spinach, ORG Lemon, Cauliflower, ORG Green Bell Pepper and ORG Cucumber, ORG Cliptop Carrots, ORG Yukon Creamer Potatoes, and ORG LeekMay I share than Leeks are amazing! Not as acrid on most onions, milder…great cooked and added to soups and stir-fry. These seem to be 2# in size, and out of Washington state. Clean them by slitting up the sides and running under cold water to wash any grit out from between the leaves. Growing culture requires stacking sandy soil up around them as they grow. This keeps them whiter and I think more tender.

But…you don’t have to wait until Thursday to shop. We have good produce in stock: Greens (Organic Girl 50/50 Spring Mix and Spinach, Greybull Valley Butterhead and Greenleaf, Organic Girl Baby Spinach, ORG Lacinato Kale, ORG Parsley), Sweet Peppers in the Pouch, Asparagus, Earthbound Green Beans (12 oz bag–ready to cook), ORG Green Onions and Yellow and White Onions, ORG Shiitake Mushrooms, Root Crops (Carrots, Red Beets, Watermelon Radishes), Brassica’s (Green and Red Cabbage, Baby Bok Choi, Broccoli, and Cauliflower), Celery, Citrus (Grapefruit, Lemons, Heirloom Oranges), ORG Bananas ($.99/# for today!), ORG Honeycrisp Apples (ORG Pink Lady on Thursday–last of the Honeycrisp in stock now), ORG Yukon Potatoes, and ORG Yams.

In the back corner of Bee Healthy, the Tea and Coffee Corner, bulk loose leaf, bagged teas…and infusers, coffee presses and cast iron tea pots. A wide selection of herbal and various degrees of caffeinated teas!

As I say every week– WE HAVE LOTS OF GOOD STUFF IN THE STORE! Stop in and check it out– gifts, essential oils, all kinds of good foods, CBD, Tinctures, and Mushroom Extracts, a wide range of supplements. And don’t forget your HoneyBryant Raw Honeys and Bulk (coming soon – our GLASS honey bear containers), and Queen Bee Honey candies from Lovell. Bee Healthy, 635 Big Horn Ave, WORLAND!

Fresh Produce– Every Thursday! Group B Boxes this Week– AND Specials to Move Surplus Veggies!

It was a great Fresh Produce Day on Thursday, but we have some goodies left that need to move, so we have marked them down to make room for the NEW STUFF coming in May 19th (Thursday):

Washington grown Asparagus—$6.75 for over 1-1/2#–great steamed or as Creamed Asparagus on Toast (Check out the Ezekiel or Silver Hills sprouted breads in the freezer! Also some interesting Mighty Manna bread that is Rye and water…that’s right: Rye & water! They also have a Seeded Manna…)

Ripe ORG Roma Tomatoes—3/$2.00 (Feeling adventurous? Make your own fresh spaghetti sauce…recipe at http://www.lloydcraftfarms.com…I let mine cook down, set over night, and serve the next day. I cheat a bit by adding a small can of tomato paste to thicken it up…)

Ripe ORG Tomatoes on the Vine—$3.50/# (bundles average less than a pound…do I hear a ho-rah for BLT’s?? Wheat Montana Bread–Flax is yummy with Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomatoes…)

Ripe ORG Bananas–$.99/# (easily frozen…dip in lemon juice, freeze individually on a cookie sheet, and transfer to a gallon freezer bag…enjoy slightly thawed as an alternative to ice cream…nice with frozen cherries, chocolate syrup, and walnuts…also handy when froze for morning smoothies!)

Why do we ‘push veggies’? Because it is the foundation for good health–our bodies are in the business of making new cells to replace those that wear out and pass on…may they rest in peace… 🙂 Give the body food it can work with, and you will have less problems with faulty DNA, and the ailments that follow…that’s one perspective! Of course, health is a little more complex, but let’s start there–

Bee Healthy is stocked with good groceries, great gifts, an abundance of teas (bagged, loose, or in small cannisters), adaptogenic Mushroom Extracts from LifeCykel (new supply that includes Oral Sprays), MedTerra CBD products, wide selection of supplements from NOW and Nature’s Sunshine, Essential oils and accessories, Candles and Salt Lamps from Aloha Bay.
