CSA basket: Week of 6/6

The greens are looking good this week. We like to make them in a veggie pasta, add them to omelets, saute them for a savory pie or empanada filling, or chop them up raw for a salad or taco toppings.

On another note... We are happy to collect your food scraps, yard waste, coffee grounds, egg shells, etc. so that we can make compost! For the past five years we have hosted a "compost collective" here on the farm. We supply you with a clean bucket; you take it home with you, filling it all week with anything organic (meaning, anything that will decompose; i.e., it doesn't have to be organic-with-a-big-"O"). When you pick-up your CSA basket, you can exchange your full (or half-full, or barely-full... best thing is to bring it weekly) bucket for a clean one. Learn a bit more here.

Expect the following in this week's basket:
Lettuce mix, lettuce, chard, collards, spinach, arugula or kale, radishes, scallions/green onions, chives, tatsoi cabbage (maybe)

Healthy collards
Healthy chard
