2015 week 7
I don't know about you but for us the big news of the week is SCHOOLS OUT for summer!!! Congratulations to the graduating class of 2015! Let's celebrate with blueberries!
Returning from previous weeks:
Yellow Squash -lots of it! perfect time to make squash casserole!
New this week!
Blueberries - we don't grow blueberries, but we get these direct from the grower J&J in Hammonton, NJ , "The Blueberry Capitol of the World"
Cabbage - This is a great variety that has tender leaves that are very sweet and crisp - perfect form coleslaw or stir-fries.
Carrots! - Have you ever heard it said that carrots improve your vision? Well, that may not be entirely accurate. During World War II, the British government credited carrots with improving night vision which led to a sudden increase in Nazi bombers being successfully shot down at night. The real reason for the success was a secret new radar system. The carrot story offered the Nazis a plausible explanation and helped distract attention from the radar system. Thankfully, it is true that carrots are high in beta-carotene which may help reduce the risk of cataract and macular degeneration. Not bad! The photo shows rainbow carrots, but this week will actually be regular orange carrots and rainbow carrots will be coming next week.
