For Week #8 – August 1 — of the 2019 FACSAP Summer Harvest, we anticipate the following this Thursday:
HARTLAND NATURAL FARM – Jamie Whitaker
Herb Assortment (rosemary, basil, lemon basil, thyme, etc)
GUERRA FARM – José Antonio Guerra Martinez
DOWNTOWN GREENS YOUTH FARM PROGRAM – Jennifer Gron
I think DTG needs to take a break for this week. The cumulative effects of high heat and little rain has slowed growth on many of our crops.
ROCK RUN CREEK FARM – Francis Ngoh
Okra coming soon!
TERRA STONE GREENS – Caroline Nicotera
I will be providing two options so the share members may choose from: delicious, nutty Sunflower or spicy, crunchy Radish and Mustard mix - all (1) oz containers so the Large Shares may take 2 units and the Small Shares may take 1 unit. I put my microgreens through 3 baths, but I always recommend rinsing prior to use.
Try the sunflowers on your sandwich or salad and the radish on appetizers or a green smoothie for a full morning kick!
We have started preparing this year’s honey harvest for FACSAP members. Members who have purchased full-season Summer Shares have the honey included with the shares. The honey is not included for the10-Week or 4-Week short-season shares, but they will have the option to purchase from the extra jars of honey Pete will deliver.
