Week of June 5th

I have to admit – I’ve never eaten a parsnip. In fact most veggies I’ve eaten are newer to me as of 10 years ago when I was rescued by the farm life. So when Tutti Frutti offered their parsnips for our CSA box I jumped on the opportunity to try something new. It’s all about diversity right?! With diversity comes an array of different nutrient complexes. Parsnips have a slightly sweet and nutty flavor (as I’m told) and they are an excellent source of many important nutrients, packing a big dose of fiber, vitamins, and minerals into each serving. They are fantastic roasted and can sub for potatoes in a mash making them a lower starch, yet delicious dish.
Tomatoes are just starting to ripen on the farm as some of the first big tomatoes are trickling out behind our cherries. With the big rainy season this year, we got behind on planting and with these foggy days, what is planted, is not ripening as quickly. I’ve been surprised to see everything on the farm take a big leap in growth though over the past week. Fruit is ripening on the trees and melon vines are taking off. Hoping to see the first apricots come off the trees and into our fruit expansions soon.
