Backyard Gardens CSA: Week 5 – July 4, 2018 go here DIRT FROM THE FIELD:

inchallah rencontre What a great week to be a Backyard Gardens CSA member! I hope you remembered to pick up your bin yesterday instead of today, but if not, it was a cool night and your veggies are still sitting pretty out at the drop-off sites. The crew was ogling your shares with a mixture of pride and envy (but mostly pride!), as we packed bunch after bunch of brightly colored root veggies- carrots, radishes, beets, and turnips- into your bins. Large shares also received giant napa cabbages, perfect for making a big batch of kimchi- I’ve included my favorite recipe below. We’re in love with the carrots in particular, having patiently watched them grow from seed to sprout to full-fleshed taproot. Wednesday morning, we sunk our forks into the bed and gently loosened the soil. We harvested the entire bed and bunched 33 1.5 bunches for you, our wonderful supporters. I hope you enjoy this photo tribute to the first spring carrots, and your root vegetables this Fourth of July!

Ciò è particolarmente vero nel caso in cui lo stoppino sostituisce la lunghezza del corpo della candela stesso enter o se lo Nicole in her namesake “Freshley” overalls harvesting your carrots.

The featured item this week is obviously the classic orange carrot. These carrots were directly seeded into Big Bob in April, while the next round, including a colorful mix of Ya Ya, Purple Haze, and White Satin varieties, is germinating in our upper field. These carrots have a delicious crunch fresh, but baking them brings out an earthier richness, so for the featured recipe this week I’ve included a healthier, and even more delicious, twist on the traditional carrot cake, which I often find to be too sugary anyway.
