Beets are back this week, and based on multiple request, we have included the beet greens as well. We have clipped and bundled them separately as they wilt very quickly if left attached to the beet. If you haven't used them before, the following recipe is simple and good: cooked-beat-greens.html
The chicken's new pasture this week is a field that I planted a clover mix cover crop into this spring, the clover is now about 18" tall and the chickens have been feeding on it like crazy, they have actually left food in the feed trough during the day in favor of the clover!
This will be the last week for the McIntosh apples, but the red and golden delicious should be ready to start this weekend. It looks like we will have many extra bushels of the goldens and some of the reds, if anyone is interest in purchasing extra quantities please let me know. Pricing is $12 per bushel for shareholders and $15 per bushel for non-shareholders.
This weeks shares will include:
- Green Beans
- Onions - White
- Beet Greens
- Jalapeno Peppers
- Cayenne Peppers
- Apples - McIntosh
