A Worker-Owned Crop.

 Laguna Farm onions are grown by Gerardo and Miguel who sub-lease the land, rent the tractor, buy the seed and tend to their crop after their regular work day. The value of this crop is returned to the men who grew it and they were proud to harvest a bumper crop this year!

Laguna Farm Happenings!
Dear Members,
Cabbage is in abundance at Laguna Farm.  We put it in the boxes last Tuesday and it will come later this week for the Thursday boxes.  Large heads of cabbage can be overwhelming to a small family, so I suggest using it in a kraut or kimchee. Fresh cabbage is best for fermenting and any variety will do.  Here are some links that utilize large amounts of cabbage for fermenting.
Quick and Spicy Kimchee
The Old Farmer’s Almanac Sauerkraut Recipe
Once you have made your big batch of Sauerkraut, here are 5 ways you can serve it other than making a Reuben.  Lastly, traditional coleslaw is another easy way to enjoy your cabbage.  Here are 12 easy coleslaw recipes.  I’m sure you can find one you will like.
So there you go!  Lots of ways to enjoy that big head of cabbage.

Be well,
Jennifer Branham

Put the liquid in first. Surrounded by water or juice, the blender blades can move freely. Next, add your greens, with chunks of fruit or vegetables going into the pitcher last.

Start slow. If your blender has speeds, start it on low to break up big pieces of fruit, then work your way up to high for a puree. For blenders with function buttons, pulse a few times before switching to puree mode.
Freeze your greens in ice-cube trays.  Simply blend your spinach, kale or other leafy greens with juice or water and freeze them in ice-cube trays or muffin tins.  Silicone molds make for easy removal.
