Joyful July

Hello everyone!
We thought you might want another peak at how our garden is doing.  Everything seems to be growing quickly at this point, and we are simply amazed at the bounty.  Also, some new vegetables will be coming your way.  The summer squash is starting to bear fruit, the tomatoes are coming, and  the basil looks tremendous!

Also, here is a great recipe to use for the Kohlrabi that you are all getting these days!

Kohlrabi Slaw
In the food processor, chop 2-3 heads of Kohlrabi.  Then do the same with a carrot or two. Put this in a bowl and add mayonnaise to your liking.  Add salt and a generous amount of pepper.  Last, add apple cider vinegar to taste (maybe 3-4 T).

You could also just take any normal Cole Slaw recipe and change out the cabbage for Kohlrabi!

And here are some photos!

Plethora of Swiss Chard

same with all this kale!

Both green and purple basil


Cloudy day yet everything still looks vibrantly green

pole bean flowers are beautiful!

Bountiful Baskets

Hello everyone!
We hope that you are enjoying your vegetables.  The garden is looking great, and the summer veggies are in full force.  Our lettuce and spinach are getting towards the end and our basil, tomatoes, and summer squash are soon to come.

Here are a couple recipes for you to try with your basket this week.

Watermelon, Arugula, and Feta Salad
This recipe would be great for your Fourth of July festivities.!
You can also try it with Parmesan or any type of goat cheese.

Or try this one:
White Bean and Kale Soup
You will be getting LOTS of kale for the next (if all things going to plan) many weeks, so it's good to figure out the different ways to use it.  We have some other kale recipes on this blog if you look through past posts, also!
