We are enjoying this beautiful weather on the farm I hope you are enjoying it too! Sorry this post is so late. We have had an incredibly busy week.
Student or Small Shares received salad mix, radishes, cucumber, tomato, yellow squash, apples and corn this week. 1/2 shares received collard greens, radishes, tomato, yellow squash, apples, corn, green pepper, garlic, acorn squash and cherry tomatoes. Full shares received Everything in 1/2 share, eggplant, red kale, zucchini, cucumber, pepper, potatoes, and brussel sprouts.
Our salad mix is very unique because it changes week to week depending on what is available to harvest. We grow about 10 varieties of lettuce, mizzuna, arugula, kale, swiss chard, beet greens and spinach, which all find their way into our salad mix at one point or another! We hope you enjoy eating it as much as we do growing it!

One of my guilty end of summer pleasures when I lived in the South was Tomato Pie! This recipe is not the one I remember using from Southern Living but it is as close as I could find. I have never tried it with bacon. Certainly not opposed, since I LOVE BACON! Not everyone does though and that’s ok. The recipe I remember so well included tomatoes, mayonnaise, cheese and pie crust. I used pre-made gluten free ones many times! Most local grocery stores carry pre-made pie crusts of some sort. I will have to look to see if I can find my beloved recipe that hasn’t surfaced since my move bask to NY. https://www.southernliving.com/recipes/heirloom-tomato-pie
As promised here is the recipe for radish greens! This recipe is so delicious! I was making chicken stock one day and had a lot of radish and carrot greens on my counter. I checked the internet ot besure they were safe to use and found out that radish greens are a powerhouse of nutrients! They are a little spicy so don’t add extra heat until you try them for yourself. https://thecuriouscoconut.com/blog/how-to-cook-radish-greens-delicious-easy-nutritious-paleo-aip-keto-vegan?fbclid=IwAR0JlH4uWdKGgoEoVIk_10MK2ii5RcDorDy5Js84f4dCxsptGb4Vyk0OIxI
