Week 3: July 28

The rain made our harvest a little soggier this week, but will easily improve the quality of future harvests.  It has been a hard year for rain and most of the irrigation systems at our farms are very labor intensive.
Singing Tree Garden will be on the Detroit Agriculture Network (DAN) Tour this upcoming week.  If you haven’t checked out any of the farms in the city this is a great opportunity.  We’re also tentatively planning a CSA farm tour sometime later this summer.

 

This week we started with 15 empty boxes:

and then added:

Squash blossoms (Fields of Plenty, Farnsworth) You can find some inspiration at http://www.thekitchn.com/five-ways-to-eat-squash-blosso-87564 or check our recipe for squash blossom quesadillas

 

Kale (Fields of Plenty, Buffalo St)

Mixed greens (Vinewood Knoll, Farnsworth, Fields of Plenty, Buffalo St, Singing Tree)
Use as salad greens or cooked

Basil (Farnsworth, Buffalo St)
About half the shares are getting Italian basil, the rest are getting Thai basil. The Thai basil has a more floral smell.

Cabbage (Buffalo St, Farnsworth)

Tarragon (Singing Tree)

Tomatoes (Buffalo St, Vinewood Knoll)

Chard (Vinewood Knoll)

plus the finishing touch of:

Flowers (Buffalo St, Singing Tree, Fields of Plenty)

 

All packed up and ready to go:

We still have veggies to make more boxes!  If you know anyone who would like to join please have them contact us (e-mail Alice at alice.bagley@gmail.com or call 734-788-2109) and we can pro-rate a share for the boxes they missed.
