Cold hardy crops coming your way!

Hope you are all staying warm this week. This new cold front has forced us to say an early farewell to our warm weather crops. The beans, tomatoes, squash and pepper plant have now returned back to the soil but only after providing a great harvest for our community. Now we will focus just on the winter crops.

One of the most cold hardy crops we grow that can easily withstand freezing is Tatsoi. This dark leaved green is also called Rosette Bok Choy and is one of the most nutritious of all the Asian Greens, with lots of Calcium and vitamins. Like many of the other greens we grow, Tatsoi can be eaten in soup, salad, stir-fry or juiced, enjoy and be creative.

Reminder:  We especially need volunteers to help with harvesting during the colder winter months when everyone would rather stay indoors.  Please join us on Thursday, Friday or Sunday mornings starting at 8:30 a.m. in the barn.

Also, CSA shares are picked fresh for our members on each pick-up day. We plan the crops months in advance in order to have the correct amount of veggies for each week in the season. If you miss your pick-up and cannot send someone else then your CSA share will be donated to The Children’s Home and/or the Food Bank. This is Sweetwater’s way to help those in need, thank you for your support.
