Path Valley Farms - June 6 Lineup

From Katie at Path Valley Farms: We've finally turned a corner, as it warms up! The few hard frosts in May certainly slowed some growing down, but things are looking up from here! We anticipate asparagus for a few more weeks. The frost was very hard on the strawberry plants, so we're unsure if bags/boxes will contain strawberries this year!

Here's the lineup for Saturday 6/6 delivery: 

Happy Family Veggie Box

  • small bag of mint: Kentucky Colonel Mint is the best variety of spearmint to use for mint juleps, also great for iced tea!
from Katie at Path Valley: I was 21 before I learned that Mint Julep was a common alcoholic drink. My friends' Mom used to make n/a mint juleps every time we were together. She made a concentrate of of orange and lemon juice, sugar, and crushed mint and kept it slushy in the freezer. We drank them year-round, but those with fresh mint were the best. There are strong opinions in this country about whether or not peppermint is a legitimate substitute and it is NOT.
  • 1 lb mix greens: ever changing mix of mizuna, tatsoi, red/green kale, red/green mustard, scarlet frills, beet greens, and some sylvetta.
  • 2 bunches of Swiss Chard or Italian Dandelion: dandelion is a great bitter green! incorporate into salad or create a bitter dish for your table. read our post about dandelion here!
  • 4 cucumbers: cucumbers make the perfect snack or use for smashed cucumber salad!
  • 2 ripe red tomatoes: some of the best greenhouse tomatoes we've ever had :)
  • 2 zucchini: what about grilling them with some of the green onions?!
  • 1 lb of asparagus: store in a jar of water in your fridge for freshest asparagus when you're ready to cook!
  • 2 bunches of spring onions, garlic or shallots: aliums make us :) too many for you to garnish and cook with? throw some on the grill or wilt them in your pan to add to your dinner plate!
  • 1/4 lb of ramp bulbs: the last hurrah for ramps!
