Second Harvest!

"One of the nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating"

-Luciano Pavorotti

Last night's harvest was like plucking living art from the dirt. Here' s the line-up for your second week's box:

Spring Onions

Can we say "ooo la la!"?

chop up the green bits to sprinkle over stir fries and salads. The height of culinary luxury has arrived.

"This is every cook's opinion

no savory dish without an onion

but lest your kissing should be spoiled

your onions must be fully boiled"

-Jonathon Swift

Baby Bak Choi greens for saute' or snacking!

another lovely asian green to saute in olive oil and toss with new potatoes and salt and pepper, or for stir fry, fried rice, pasta, risotto, or omelet filling!


"The greatest delight the fields and woods minister is the suggestion of an occult relation between man and vegetable. I am not alone and unacknowledged. They nod to me and I to them."

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Mustard Greens*

for braising or saute'.

a few boxes are without mustard greens this week.

Asian Cabbage

Swiss Chard

check out our recipe for Chard Tart in the newsletter this week.

French Breakfast Radishes

dip them in butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper...add to salads, stir fries, and tuna salad. Revel in that magnificent color!

Buttercrisp Rosette Lettuces

serve as a bed for roasted chicken, tossed in a vinaigrette.



dress up your salads and sandwiches

Deer-Tongue Lettuce

"We should look for someone to eat and drink with before looking for something to eat and drink"


An array of extra lettuces and surplus to

choose from at your dropsite!

Happy Eating!

  1. Poetry for the palatte. I am now starving. You have fresh arugula? and radishes? and onions. Be still my heart...

  2. Jen Baadte here...what a great basket today! Love the mitzuna! We had a great asian chicken salad tonight with the bok choy, the spring onions and the asian cabbage! Yum! So good.

  3. WOW, I wish I lived in Gowen, Michigan! Food never looks as good or sounds as wonderful as Mrs. Farmer makes it look via her photography and sound via her poetic descriptions of their harvests!
    Cheers to all, Aunt Shannon
