Second update of the week!
Summer is SIZZLIN

Ok Friends,

Now that things have settled down, and heated up, I should add some notes for this week.

CARROTS AND BEETS ARE NOT HAPPENING. I have just learned that they arent supposed to be ready until mid july. So for those of us that got em in last week, it was a divine treat, but we really should hold our tails a little bit and be patient!

In addition, we will have some local beefsteak tomatoes @ $3.75/#

Local Wild Mint and oregano have been added to the list as well.

Tons and tons of local organic head lettuce, and of course, we have lots of eggs to move through the supply chain.

disclaimer: Fresh Local Foods can sometimes be a hit or miss. Weather conditions in Vermont can sometimes damage crops or effect crops in a way we cannot anticipate. Also, organic food does not get sprayed with chemicals and is therefore more susceptible to pest-related damage. I say this because it is the reality of eating local foods. This is a disclaimer.




So far for this week we can offer the following new products:

PEA TENDRILS - amazingly adorable and delicious. The stems and leaves and possibly flowers of the pea plants. Theyre only here for a few weeks at most, so get em now!

GARLIC SCAPES - Long stringy delicious garliciness. Thats right, garlic scape pesto, sauteed, cut fresh onto salads, or whatever. Theyre just like scallions, but garlic.

MINT, BASIL, ARUGALA, TURNIP GREENS, KALE, CHARD, COLLARDS and much more.

I will send out another newsletter as the day goes on and I hear from more farmers with their availability!

Thank you all so much for your continued participation, patience, and orders.

In Gratitude,

Daniel Stein

If you harvest your scapes young and tender, you can chop them into salads or use them as a topping, like scallions. More mature scapes can be sauteed lightly and used over pasta, with eggs, mixed with cooking greens, pickled or pretty much in any dish that would be complemented by garlic. My favorite way to use them is to make a garlic scape pesto. I've listed some great recipes to get the juices flowing, below.

Pea tendrils, also known as pea shoots, are the young leaves, stems, vines, and flowers of a pea plant. All the parts of the plant are edible. The type of pea plant is typically either a snow pea or a shelling pea, and the original variety will have an impact on the taste of the tendrils. The pea tendrils are harvested before pea pods have developed, and depending on the maturity of the plant, there may only be small shoots with leaves or there may be long stems with leaves, flowers, and vines
