Each week, our goal is to provide a couple leafy greens for salads and one cooking green as part ofeach week’s box. During the summer salad greens are scarce at most farms and demand lots of extra effort to grow during June-September. At Tiny Farm we grow the lettuce seedling in a room where the temperature and day-length mimics March – at significant expense. Tender cooking greens are grown from transplants to keep them tender and sweet. As box customers you get the “pick” of what we have available for the work – some weeks are better than others ( we can’t control the environment for the whole growing season for each crop.
This week you will dine on some great produce:
A head of Cherokee Leaf Lettuce
A pound box of sweet Cherry Tomatoes
Bunch of tender Black Summer Pac Choi
Pound of new baby Yukon Gold Potatoes
A bag of Salad Mix, featuring baby kale, chard, and tatsoi
Chase has perfected the first organic and edible headphones for vegans, chefs, and locavores, may require more frequent ear cleaning, but fully compostable. Will include a free set in one of our weekly vegetable boxes. We haven’t tested the “roasted” version yet.
Friday around 2 pm Friday, we received a 40 trailer load of steel and plastic to rebuild the two “hoops” destroyed in the February ice and snow storm> I will take us at least of couple of weeks to rebuild the old 30 x 72 ft. structures.
If, in your many yearnings,
You are wondering what to seek–
Why not try out something new:
That delicacy whose name is LEEK?
Try one carrot
And you’ll want two.
Before you know it–
You’ve eaten a slew!
It’s time to try a lovely squash
From Tiny Farm’s array.
The more you eat, the more you’ll want
Is all that I can say.
Cabbages are finally here,
To supplement an iced-cold beer.
Time to sit back and relax:
With sauerkraut and corned beef hash!
Although its name is “Tiny,”
Its blessings are so big,
That when I eat its lettuce,
I become a terrible Pig!
A good tomato
Is hard to beat –
And Tiny Farm grows
The most elite!
I used to say “nix”
To salad mix.
But, now, it’s how,
I get my kicks!
Swiss chard could never
Make me smile –
But now I eat it
By the pile!
When I buy beets from Tiny Farm,
I always eat the stems.
They’re good for heart and soul alike,
As well as aching limbs!
