Napa Cabbage
Swiss Chard
Green Garlic



Napa Cabbage Slaw
Napa Cabbage can be used like cabbage or kale, cooked or raw. It's even great instead of romaine in a Caesar salad. We've been enjoying this fast and simple slaw:

1/2 Napa cabbage, julienned or grated
A few kale leaves, julienned or grated
1 Bunch radishes, greens removed, thinly sliced or grated
1-2 Heads kohlrabi, grated
1/2 Head fresh garlic, minced

1. Mix the veggies in a large bowl
2. Add: a couple glugs of apple cider, rice, or white wine vinegar; a few squirts of soy sauce, tamari, or Braggs; a quick drizzle of sesame oil; the juice from a lime; and salt and pepper to taste.

Chard and Beet Pasta
You can use the beet greens just like Swiss chard. This is how we make a hearty meal in a flash:

1. Steam or roast chopped beets
2. Cook 1 lb pasta of your choice according to the instructions on the box.
3. Cook sausage of choice, throw chopped beet greens and chard in at the end to wilt.
4. Put everything over the pasta and add feta or chevre

Next Week's Harvest (we think...)

A few members have asked for a look ahead into what we'll be offering so they can get their grocery shopping in order. We are going to try to give a few non-binding predictions, since we can't guarantee much in this uncertain business. So for next week, we think you can expect:

Garlic Scapes
Lettuce or Salad mix

Plus (or minus) some other great veggies!

All the best,

Salad Daze

Upgrade your salad game this week: chop salads, wilted salads, lettuce wraps; heck, we use lettuce for dipping in humus and baba ganoush! Salad turnips and kohlrabi are also great as cracker substitutes and grated or thinly sliced they improve any salad. Recently, we've been really digging grated beets and cheese with a homemade ranch. To help you embrace your inner rabit, here are few easy-peasy salad dressing recipes. Don't like what you see? The trusty Martha Stewart has loads of recipes here.

Rhubarb Vinaigrette

1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup water
4 stalks rhubarb (about 2 loosely packed cups), cut into thin slices
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
Zest of one lemon
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Pinch coarse sea salt
Several twists freshly ground pepper

Heat water and honey over medium heat. When the mixture begins to boil, add rhubarb and boil five minutes more, stirring often. Stir in vinegar and lemon zest, and cook five to 10 more minutes, until dressing is reduced by about half. Remove from heat, and let cool slightly. Whisk the olive oil into the dressing. Season with salt and pepper. Serve warm or cold over fresh salad greens.  Yields about 2 cups. 

Lime Vinaigrette

This is our go-to, salad dressing. It's fast, easy and we almost always have the ingredients on hand. I use our immersion blender to get a nice emulsion, but a whisk does just fine.
2 parts olive oil
1 part balsamic vinegar
1 part lime (or lemon) juice (fresh is best, but bottled will do in a pinch)
A good squirt of Dijon mustard or a couple pinches of powdered mustard
1-3 garlic cloves, pealed and smashed
A glug of maple syrup
A few turns of the pepper grinder
Lots of salt

Homemade Ranch

1/2 cup mayonnaise or yogurt
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
OR 3/4 cup buttermilk (instead of mayo and vinegar)
1/4 cup chopped dill and/or parsley
1 Tablespoon salt
1 Tablespoon maple syrup
1 Tablespoon chopped scallion, onion, or shallot
Plenty of black pepper

Ginger Miso

This one is great for kale salad with grated turnips, radishes, scallions, and KOHLRABI!
2 Tablespoons miso paste
1/2 cup rice, white wine, or apple cider vinegar
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 Tablespoon pealed and minced ginger
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 Tablespoon maple syrup

Happy munching!

Thank You!

We couldn't be more excited for the second season of The 607 CSA. We couldn't do it without our stellar members, so thank you! We hope you enjoy eating your food as much as we enjoy growing it.


All the leafy things this week store best in a plastic bag in the fridge. The radish and turnip greens are great sauteed!


We've been devouring this Thai Salad recipe using kale, bok choy, grated radishes and turnips for the veggies. Also, when we're out of coconut milk we substitute a hefty spoonful of coconut oil and a couple of tablespoons of butter. Grated coconut is yummy too!

Check out these rhubarb recipes including a simple syrup, pie, and much more.

Farm News

Both farms have long to-do lists now that June is nearly upon us. Farmers often claim June is the busiest month because seeding, planting, weeding, and harvesting are all in full swing. We're just keeping our heads down, doing all the things, and waiting for it to be over. Oh, and praying for rain! But even in June, we wouldn't trade it for anything.
