Extended Winter 2016 Week 1 (Feb 2)

Three years ago David added a winter season to Zoe’s thanks to his knowledge of root vegetable storage and a high tunnel that could keep him growing cold weather veggies all winter long. This year he has more produce than usual and can keep us eating local and healthy during his normal February and March break. This is my 5th year getting shares and I’ve almost felt lost those two months of the year, wandering in the grocery store. Thank you to everyone that signed up. We still have room for more members, so if you’re happy with Zoe’s we’d love any referral.

Also, I just figured out how to get two instagram accounts on my phone, so if you’re interested, search for: zoe.garden. I’ll post recipe ideas, visits to see David at the farmer’s market, and trips to the farm when it warms up.

On to our boxes. Lots of greens today. I would go for the spinach first, it’s looking more delicate than the others. Here’s a recipe for a crockpot friendly red lentil soup with spinach that’s a go-to for me.

Small: Onion, shallot, garlic, apples, potatoes, spaghetti squash, spinach, broccolini, salad mix, extra greens (spinach in my case) cabbage, multi-color carrots, parsnips.
