Some welcome rainfall over the last week has given us a moment to put down the irrigation pipes and update you on some Root 5 Farm news.
Succession plantings of greens, herbs, and roots over the last two months have filled our farmers' market stand and our CSA boxes with a beautiful variety of vegetables. The shares have been bountiful and most crops have been loving the heat this summer.
We've been working hard to keep the crops planted, weeded, watered, and harvested on time. Our fields and greenhouses are looking great this season! Tomatoes are ripening and other summer crops like squash, cucumbers, and peppers are coming in strong now.
Sweet potatoes, winter squash, and melons are vining out and we've also planted many of our late fall storage crops like carrots, beets, and cabbage.
We hope you'll enjoy this recipe for Summer Greens Rice Casserole from our friend, Chef Alison Price. You'll find that this delicious and simple recipe is easily adaptable for any cooking greens you find in your CSA box or at our farmers' market stand.
