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

Week 17- GROUP A, May 7th, 2020…Don’t forget to get signed up for CSA :)

Great week last week!  And thanks to all the folks that came out to support FRESH VEGGIES for our last FIFTH Thursday Market!  If you are not a member of the Buyer’s Group and would like to continue getting veggies and shopping at The Farm each Thursday, TEXT 431-1219 and sign up for a box in Group A this week, or Group B next week.  No prepayment required for the Buyer’s Group, just a commitment for 2 Boxes in May.   We hope to keep this up until the garden is ready and can transition direct into the CSA. 

Please consider joining the CSA, if you haven’t yet.  CSA members help to fund our garden, and in turn we help to supply them with fresh veggies for at least 13 weeks from July through October!  Pay before May 15th and save $65 on the Weekly Share.  Consider the Monthly Share EVEN if you are planting a garden this year.  Believe me, it’s a small investment to expand what veggies you’ll have for the summer, to back up your garden just in case it does not produce as you expect, and to add fresh lettuces and fruits each week!  (Monthly Share cost is $130 which gets you 4 Shares and membership in the CSA to shop every THURSDAY at The Farm!)

A note on the Carrots in the boxes…I ordered pre-bagged carrots last week as we didn’t have time to bag them.  In going through some of the extra’s the following day we found some spoilage. IF YOUR CARROTS HAD SOME SPOILED ONES IN THE BAG, PLEASE TAKE A PICTURE AND TEXT IT TO 431-1219. If you ever get some spoiled produce, let us know by the following Sunday of the date you received the box.  We will make all efforts to make it right!
