Box Contents Week 11 – Summer 2011

Well this week marks the beginning of the second half of Farm Share. Take a minute to think of your experience so far. Did you try something new, discover a new favourite or decide a certain veggie just isn’t for you?

Perhaps you have had to throw away some things that never made it in a meal. May I just encourage you to make deciding to eat better easier on yourself. I recommend washing, drying, and sometimes even chopping off your produce right away so they are quick to grab. You will likely eat what is available and easy, especially when you are tired, so if you have already done the prep work, then that’s one more healthy eating victory you are likely to have.

Please feel free to offer your feedback on this blog, facebook or via email.

This week I am excited to include corn (a first for Zephyr Organics) and cabbage, a fall (gasp!) staple. It seems wrong to even think about the fall right now, but indeed there is an abundance of great produce coming your way soon. Unfortunately the broccoli is not going to win any beauty contests this week (the heat has discoloured it a little) but it still tastes good and you will find that there are 11 items in the half share this week. Zucchini and cucumbers are likely done for the season, so savour them.

Here are the contents:
