The Farm at Sunnyside for Tuesday June 9!

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 6/9 delivery will delight you with 

  • 1 bunch Dill : Spring + summer herb that pairs well with the first SUMMER SQUASH of the season. Chop and sprinkle on top of sauteed squash or your fava beans/peas.
  • 1 lb. Summer Squash : It's here! Now, it's starting to feel like summer. Saute me lightly or slice me lengthwise and throw on the grill with a little oil + THOSE SCAPES!
  • 1 bunch Garlic Scapes : These are only around for a couple weeks, so enjoy them while there here. When grilled, they taste like buttery garlic. You can also chop + use like garlic while cooking.
  • Peas or Fava Beans : This might be the last week for this springy items, so don't miss out! We've been enjoying chopped, sugary sweet snap peas in our salads as well as the nutty Favas.
  • 1 Asian Green : If you're grilling squash + scapes, why not throw the pac choi on the grill, too? Or, you can lightly saute as a side dish. Or, make a stir fry with THOSE TURNIPS!
  • 1 bunch Turnips or Radishes : These soon will be a distant memory and we'll be awaiting their return in the fall. Enjoy crunchy slices to dip into hummus, top a salad or saute lightly.
  • 1 Bitter Green (Spigarello or Escarole): If you're afraid of bitter, try cutting the bitterness with lemon juice and adding some fats like olive oil, parmesan or feta, or even bacon! Don't be afraid, you might just like it! If you got FAVAS, sprinkle those on top. Last but not least:
  • 1 head lettuce and...
  • 1 bag salad mix : Fresh greens like this make us LOVE salad!!! Make a DILLy dressing if you need to use that dill. The head should last longer than the bagged mix, so use the bag first. It's an easy lunch or dinner to throw together when you just don't wanna cook. Bonus points for throwing some Number 1 Sons ferments on top! :)
  • Foraged add-on! No foraged option this week. Stay tuned for what Tom is foraging next!

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. Sunny Side
