Dear Members, 

The orchard is bursting with fruit that we have been picking for your fruit share and for the farm stand.  Beautiful and juicy pluots, Gravenstein apples and plums are joining the harvest along with our already abundant strawberries, blackberries and raspberries.  
 


Feel free to inquire about bulk fruit for freezing and canning.  We have flash deals on berries, plums, apples and pears during peak season.  We are also offering bulk basil at $25.00 for a 5 pound bag.  Soon, tomatoes will be in enough abundance that we will offer 20 pounds for $30.00

Come out to the farm!  If you are a home-delivery customer or pick up your CSA at one of our area neighborhood sites, I want to again extend the invitation to come out to the farm.  Our farm stand is always open to you and the summer months are the perfect time to see how your food is grown.

Eat well,
Jennifer Branham-Burns
Produce Box:  
Salad Mix, Lemon and Japanese Cucumber or Zucchini, Basil, Bok Choy, Spring Onions, Kale.
This weekend, I wanted to make spring rolls out of my remaining carrots and beets along with our beautiful spring onions, bok choy and basil.  When I looked in the pantry, I found I didn’t have any rice paper wrappers.  So instead, I used Sushi Nori and made spring rolls out of those.  WOW!  I will likely not go back to the rice paper again, as the nori is much easier to work with, imparts more flavor, is easier to cut and chew and is more nutritious.  

Nori Spring Rolls: Sushi Nori wrappers, kelp noodles, seaweed, bok choy, zucchini, spring onions, carrot, beet and basil.

Juice Boxes
Cucumber, Beets, Bok Choy, Pluots, Strawberries, Kale and Celery!


Pluot and Strawberrie Green Smoothie
Green smoothies all have one thing in common: greens!  This week’s juice box features our farm-fresh pluots.  Perfectly ripe and full of sugar.  I immediately froze several and added them to the blender the next day.  Blended up with bok choy,  strawberries and a dash of almond milk,  I feel refreshed and hydrated.  These pluots are super juicy, so if you are planning on freezing them for your smoothie, I suggest cutting them up in small pieces so you blender will have an easy time processing them.
