Ideas for Eating,Cutting,Cooking and Keeping the new stuff:

Basil has arrived and personally my favorite herb.Great in and on everything,raw,cooked or smoke it!It is all good. Store it in the fridge in its baggie,but beware basil will turn black in your fridge after a few days,so use it while it’s perky and green!

Cabbage Is a great standby veggie to have in your fridge. It will keep in a plastic bag for weeks and weeks (just slice off the browned edge of a cut cabbage to reveal fresh layers beneath), and is wonderful raw or lightly cooked. Add to your greens for more crunch.We’ll often make slaw with ours (check out our all-time favorite Kaleslaw recipe – you could use your kale or rainbow chard). It’s also tasty steamed lightly and doused with olive oil, salt and cider vinegar. It stir-fries well, or can be boiled with a chopped onion for five minutes and added to mashed potatoes. Last but not least, you could give wild fermentation a try: sauerkraut or kimchi which uses both your radishes and cabbage. Fermented foods like kraut and kimchi tend to be tangy, salty, sometimes a little spicy – and one of the secrets to a long, healthy life!

DIG IN

THANK YOU to those who have come and weeded. It has been a huge help!

The best looking entry in the 24th of July Parade in Enoch was by far Red Acre Farm. I can say that Lynn Sara and friends created it. Not a picture taker but our friends blog has it all tommymom.com. The best part was our Share Holders that came all dressed up and walked. We just love you all. No we did not grow all the food on that cart! Us Foods, Linns other local gardens……
