As we move into January we are ever so slightly starting to see a bit more light each week with a focus on Feb. 7th when 10hours of daylight returns and real growth starts to happen again. We are currently pulling and replanting crops in our heated tunnels and starting to plant transplants in the greenhouse for our unheated tunnels. The new year always brings a fresh look at the coming season as well as anticipating the hustle of spring. We hope you all had amazing holidays and happy new year!
In your bag this week:
Micro Arugula: crisp and peppery, these are great on sandwiches, as a salad or over your morning eggs! Store in your fridge.
Pea shoots: Sweet and Crisp. These are excellent on a grilled cheese, added to a burger or sandwich or just eaten raw. We even have a friend who loves them on a peanut butter sandwich (don't make that face). Store in your fridge.
Spinach: Super sweet and crisp. Eat as a salad or sautee. I have been making a breakfast salad lately by just putting a fried egg over the spinach with a little goat cheese and whatever nuts I have-great start to your day! Store in your fridge for up to 3 weeks.
Mesclun Mix: this is a mix of kale, mustard, arugula, mizuna and tat soi that is great as a braising mix or eaten raw as a salad. With the low light of winter, the purple mustard and kale really take on a deep rich color. Store in your fridge.
Flavor Mix Microgreens: A big bag of our classic Microgreen mix. Eat as a salad with olive oil, salt and pepper or add to a sandwich, your breakfast eggs or pretty much anything else! Store in your fridge.
