Our mass email system had a glitch last week and our weekly email did not get sent out until most of you already had your shares in hand!  Just a good reminder that email or not, the shares must go on!!!    Our farmers have grown these goodies just for you, so the deliveries will be there each Tuesday. The kale bounced back this week with each person getting 2 bunches in Tuesday's shares.  Our organic grower has kale planted in beds in a greenhouse that is not heated.  Technically a non heated greenhouse is called a 'hoophouse'. It works by concentrating the sun's rays, naturally heating up the building during the day with the interior temperatures really only dropping to dangerous ranges right before dawn.  Hearty veggies like Kale can last in these conditions surprisingly well and Dennis hopes to have kale for another week or two.   For kale lovers, this is very exciting.  For the rest of you....take heart that the kale is really really good for you.  Chop it up finely and add it to your soups.  Or better yet, turn it into kale chips!   All shares to receive (and remember to eat from the top of the list to the bottom!) Basil, greenhouse grown, spray free Lettuce, greenhouse grown, spray free.  Don't like salad?  Wrap it up!  Use your lettuce leaves to wrap up thai steak salad,  stir fry,  quinoa salad, spicy grilled tofu, leftovers, chopped veggies and chickpeas.  Really, anything goes.  Short on time, temper and imagination for supper?  Chop up some veggies, stir fry some chicken or tofu, or eggs or whatever you have, boil up some egg noodles or rice noodles, put it all on the table with some sauces, and peanuts and voila!  It's make your own lettuce wrap night.  Or you can make a green salad:) Tomatoes, greenhouse, spray free Kale, organic Beets, organic Another beet recipe here!  It's for beet chocolate cake!!!
