The Farm at Sunnyside for Thursday June 18!
Certified organic produce from The Farm at Sunnyside, which is just 75 miles from Washington DC.

SMALL VEGGIE BAG

Don't have a lot of time to cook? Do a quick saute of the chard + scapes + squash and throw over a bowl of couscous or quinoa. Chop + top with the parsley. It's what tired farmers eat for dinner! 

The small veggie bag for Thursday 6/18 delivery will delight you with

- 1 bunch parsley - Versatile herb. Chop + top your pasta dishes or that bowl of veggies + couscous.
- 1 bag salad mix or head lettuce - We're loving cool salads for lunch on HOT days. - 1 bunch chard or head radicchio - Got chard? Saute lightly with squash + scapes. Got radicchio? We love a radicchio + beet + goat cheese salad!
- 1 bunch beets - Steam me, peel + slice. Toss with some olive oil + vinegar + GARLIC SCAPES + PARSLEY
1 bunch chard
- 1 lb. squash - Colorful, tender + a little sweet. We're loving the arrival of squash + letting it brighten up our meals. Grill. Add to pasta. Toss over couscous.
- 1 bunch scapes or green garlic - Chop and saute lightly to start any meal. We also love this Szechuan recipe and this Chinese recipe for garlic scapes. 
Foraged add-on! We're waiting on mother nature :) Tom is eagerly checking his chanterelle sites - nothing quite yet! Summer Truffle season in Oregon is from May to July. No truffles this week, but we expect a few more rounds!

LARGE VEGGIE BAG

Farmer Casey has been cooking a lot of THAI food lately, so we're thinking broccoli, kohlrabi, onions and radishes or turnips over a big bowl of rice noodles topped with some chili flakes + cilantro or chives. Make a cold cucumber salad to go on the side. Or, chop up cukes + kohlrabi + radishes, top with cilantro + chives + vinegar + peanuts and wrap them with a cabbage leaf for an easy no bake appetizer or meal.
- 1 bag salad greens or head lettuce - We're loving a cool salad on a HOT day!
- 1 bunch kale or asian greens - Saute both lightly for a side dish.
- 1 bunch cilantro or chives - Fresh, versatile. Chop and top Asian or Mexican cuisine. Or, use in salad dressings.
- 1 head cabbage (green) - Make wraps as mentioned above OR shred with the KOHLRABI to make cabbage pancakes. Fry lightly and top with your CILANTRO or CHIVES
- 1 bunch broccoli - More tender + sweet than your grocery store broccoli.
- 2-4 cukes - Crisp, sweet. These are consumed quickly on the farm as snacks. But, if they last long enough to make a salad, we'd add thin slices of ONION and your CILANTRO or CHIVES to liven them up!
- 1 bunch onions - I PLAY WELL WITH EVERYONE. These are sweet + tender. Slice thinly to eat raw or cook 'em up!
- 1 bunch radishes or turnips - Crunchy. Radishes are peppery. Turnips are mild. These will soon be a distant memory of spring.
- 1 kohlrabi - Add some sweetness + crunch to your noodle bowl or CABBAGE pancakes

The Farm at Sunnyside is managed by Stacey and Casey. We first met them at the Arlington Farmers Market in 2013 when starting Number 1 Sons. Stacey and Casey are phenomenal farmers and managers tending to the health of their land, soil, staff and our community with their nutritious + delicious vegetables. You may have eaten their vegetables at the Dupont Circle Farmers Market, Falls Church Farmers Market, The Dabney or A Rake's Progress :)

The Farm at Sunnyside borders the Shenandoah National Park - read more about their conservation efforts on their website. We love visiting Sunnyside and learning about cover crops, compost, field rotation, food safety processes, and working with a seasonal farm staff - Stacey and Casey excel at all these things!

The farm may substitute veggies if they run out. This happens rarely, but does happen from time time. Produce is measured by weight, so quantity may vary slightly from pictures. Sorry, we can't offer substitutions right now.
