Field Update: We have ORGANIC blackberries! Blackberry season often lasts until sometime in August. -July 20
Certified organic produce from The Farm at Sunnyside, which is just 75 miles from Washington DC. The large veggie bag is great for the person who eats most veggie-filled meals at home or the couple who cooks some meals at home!
The large veggie bag for Tuesday 7/28 will delight you with
- 1 bunch basil or cilantro - Basil plays well with all the summer flavors, from TOMATOES to ZUCCHINI. Cilantro goes well with Asian or Mexican inspired cooking; chop and add to stir-frys or tacos!
- 1 bunch chard - Delicious greens that come in a rainbow of colors, chop and saute with ONIONS. Great on top of a pizza!
- 2-3 onions or 1 bunch scallions - These fresh spring onions are super sweet and are delicious raw and cooked! The scallions make a crisp topping to a bowl of noodles or a stirfry.
- 2 lbs squash and cucumbers - Grill the squash with ONIONS or SCALLIONS. Slice up the cucumbers and layer with TOMATO slices and BASIL for a simple salad.
- 1 fennel - Cut the bulb into chunks and roast with the ONIONS until caramelized and soft. The tender fronds can be used as garnish.
- 2 lbs tomatoes - Heirlooms or hybrids, these tomatoes are practically bursting with summer flavor and especially shine in simple applications like a classic tomato sandwich.
- 1 box cherry tomatoes - Snack on these little cherries or slice in halves and mix with the BASIL for bruschetta.
- 2-3 peppers (sweet and hot mix) - Purple or green, these early peppers are sweet and vegetal. A jalapeno or fresno can add some heat to your meal.
- 1 box blackberries - What a treat! These berries are plump and juicy and probably won't last long in your fridge. If they do, add them to a trifle!
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. Sunny Side
