WOW! Kiwi’s from NEW ZEALAND! THURSDAY at Bee Healthy–

business-card

KIWI from NEW ZEALAND!

BROCCOLI RAAB (Rapini) from WASHAKIE TEN!  

LEEKS from WASHINGTON STATE!

THAI BASIL from Thailand??  No, USA!

We are preparing for that THURSDAY trip to BEE HEALTHY–Lots of good produce INCLUDING our own herbs, Rapini, and 5 oz bags of FRESH SPINACH (like, harvested and bagged yesterday!).  We are also putting together some 1# bags of Braising Spinach, real cheap!  More of the Lady Alice Apples from Washington–  🙂

Since not many folks (including myself until Monday) have tried Broccoli Raab (Rapini) we are selling bundles Thursday for $1.75 (Usually $3.75).  Raab is a broccoli known for its huge green leaves and flowery bloom, and best grown in the cool of Spring.  My Monday Experience was delightful as far as the leaves and head and tender stems went, but I strongly suggest you cut off any thick, tough, lower stems.  Broccoli and radishes are in the same family, if you can imagine that, and I think I got impatient and harvested too far down the stalk and got some of that radish flavor. 

As a member of the Brassica family, broccoli of all sorts are high in antioxidants and other nutrients to help our bodies to function right and heal, too!  Good addition to any diet–

 

See you Tomorrow at Bee Healthy!  Try some spinach (PLEASE) and some Rapini (40 bundles for sale cheap)–The Farmer’s Wife
