For Friday January 13

Posted 1/10/2017 10:27am by Emily Best.

  We’re getting the list out quickly today as we are headed out of the office this afternoon for our annual meeting. We’re hoping to see over 35 of our member growers in attendance, and plan to vote to add two new members (who’ve been growing with us for at least a couple years already). And just to add a bit of fun to the morning, it snowed an inch around here! So will make for some exciting travel (don’t worry, we’re all cautious drivers round here).  

We’re expecting another batch of russet potatoes to arrive by Thursday but just in case they don’t arrive, you’ll find them on the tentative list.  

HIGHLIGHTS:  

FAVA and SUNFLOWER SHOOTS: We’re pleased to be able to offer these delicate shoots grown by Salina Peachey at Greenbriar Farm. We just lowered the price as she’s harvesting a lot so try them out this week!  

BABY LETTUCE HEADS: We’re a bit low on our greens this week but Mark Stanley at Help From Above Farm has a good supply of baby lettuce heads available in both green and red romaine. Very cute, tender, and tasty.  

PARSNIPS: Haven’t featured these yet this year as I wasn’t sure what our supply would be like. But fortunately looks like we’ll have them around for a while. Looks like a carrot but tastes oh-so-sweet. Great for roasting.  

PURPLE DAIKONS: Grower Solomon Beiler grew some specialty purple daikons and we’re happy to add them to the list this week. They’re an elongated purple radish, with a great radish flavor.  

WINTER SQUASH: The farmers at New Morning Farm realized they had more Sweet Dumplings and Acorn Squash than they needed, so now we get to sell it! The Acorn squash is mature so the outer rind is now golden. We’re confident these are still good to eat and should be quite tasty!
