Happy Monday!  Buyer’s Group is finishing up the 2nd month of  5 months.  (Our last Box is May 30th.)    This week there are 2 EXTRA BOXES, and 1 OPENING in Group B.  (If you are interested in being a part of this endeavor with the guarantee of 2 Special Boxes a month at a reduced price, send me a text to sign up! 431-1219)  

This Week’s Box–$30:  ORG Blackberries and 2# of Heirloom Oranges, AND Cauliflower, Eggplant, Yellow Bell Pepper, 1.5# Fingerling potatoes, Red OnionAll ORGANIC–and a head of Butter Lettuce from Greybull Valley Produce.  Info Sheet included.   Text if you are not in the Buyer’s Group and would like this box!  431-1219

Riced ORG Cauliflower–it’s easy enough to ‘rice’ your own cauliflower, but this is pre-riced and ready to go!  (You know, one of those time savers.)  I think it could speed up some of the other processes with cauliflower, like using cauliflower to make Pizza Crust.  This is the first time we’ve ordered the Riced Cauliflower–check it out and let me know what you think!!

ORG Red Radishes–$3.75 a bundle.  We will have more of our Alpine Daikon Radishes.  These are a mild, large radish–great stir-fried, fried, or fermented.  Also good cut into thin slices and put in water in the fridge to crisp as a snack.  (A member of the Brassica family, high anti-oxidant! Nutrient DENSE!)

ORG Eggplant–and yes! some ideas on how to handle, store, and use.  Eggplant is a very mild flavored ‘fruit/vegetable’.  As most in the nightshade family (tomatoes and peppers) it is mild with a different texture.  (I find folks not fans of Eggplant are usually a victim of ‘food texture disorder’…its flavor is mild but the texture can be considered ‘spongy’ by some– )

ORG Asparagus–someday we will have a quarter of an acre of asparagus grown right here in our garden in the Big Horn Basin, but until then we’ll rely on the asparagus coming out of Mexico and Washington state.  The importance of a good experience with asparagus is trimming it to eliminate the tough ends!  It’s great steamed with a cream sauce and served on rice or toast!

Halo tangerines–We’ve had the ORG Clementine/Mandarin’s but this week I decided to go with the Halo’s and add an additional pound for the same price.  (Hope they are as good as the ORG have been!) Citrus is one item we order conventional–the peels provide a good barrier against pesticide sprays, and few other chemicals are applied when the fruit is forming.

Come and visit us Thursday at Bee Healthy!  Open at 10:00, best selection earlier in the day–  The Farmer’s Wife
