WEEK 18–6 more to go! Group B- Thursday, May 14th at The Farm

asparagus 2

Spring has sprung!  Hard to imagine with the cold and WIND last Thursday–but we have our own items to harvest from the High Tunnels for the Special Boxes, and for the refrigerator case, too.  The new items this week are OUR OWN Red Rover Radishes (bundles of 5-7), Dwarf Bok Choi (small heads great for stir fry with beef, or in a mixed stir fry), more of our Green Onions, and HERBS (parsley, and a Mix of Oregano, Sage, Marjoram, and maybe some Thyme).  Next week we hope to have some bundled spinach, and some bags of baby spinach, besides the other items listed above…

GROUP B Special Box:  Greybull Valley Living Lettuce (Romaine, or Green/Red Leaf), Honey Mango, 1# bag ORG Kiwi, Dwarf Bok Choi (with recipe and prep hints), Green Onions, ORG Cucumber, 2 ORG Zucchini, head of Cauliflower, 4-5 ORG Roma Tomatoes, and 2# ORG Yukon Potatoes— $30 

6 EXTRA BOXES!  (Text 431-1219 to reserve)

Items of NOTE in The Store at The Farm–

ORG Blueberries--$4.25 (Super Nutrient–Great to Freeze…I can order a case for you!)

Peelz Mandarin Oranges–$12.50 for 5# (Last of the season–only size available)

Honey Mangoes–$2.50 each (I’ve been trying to snag these for the past 6 weeks…by far better than most regular Mangoes…more mango, smaller pit, and last a little longer…tough thing with mangoes is they are sensitive to cold and will brown prematurely)

Artichokes–$4.25 each (These are bigger than last week…smaller ones were not available)

WA Asparagus–1-1/2# bundle–$5.50 each (More of the Washington Asparagus!)

ORG Turmeric root–1-2/3 oz–$2.00 (Anti-inflammatory, add a slice to your tea, grate into stir fry or other dishes…a little goes a long way!)

ORG Colored Bell Peppers--$6.00 Three Pack, or $2.00 each (No green peppers this week, quality has been poor on the greens and super on the red, yellow, or orange.  I think yellow is the mildest. Consider subbing it for a green pepper.  Colored bells are thick meated than the green and last better.)

ORG Red Beets and ORG Watermelon Radishes–price to be determined once we find out their size!  (Beets are in the spinach family, both contain super dense nutrients.  Watermelon radishes are in the Brassica family which many consider to be healing foods!)

ORG Roma Tomatoes–$.50 each depending on size (This is the only tomato for this week, the others are reaching the end of their season in Mexico.  I’m sure we will be transitioning to domestic tomatoes in the next couple of weeks.)

Mammoth Pecan Halves- 7 oz bag–$6.50  (We have been expanding our nut offerings:  nuts provide minerals not normally available in other foods.  A micronutrient diet consists of fruits, veggies, and nuts.  Balance this with fats, carbohydrares, and protein for complete health to build that all important immune system, and to replace your ever expiring cells with new!)

Check out the inventory at The Store at The Farm tab!  Last week to pay for the CSA and get the early discount to save $35 to $65.  Sign Up on line and pay by mail or drop check on Thursday at The Farm–1049 Washakie Ten, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.

To your health–Happy Mother’s Day!   The Farmer’s Wife
