2018. Week 7.
New this week:
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 had a secret new radar system that was dramatically increasing the percentage of Nazi bombers being shot down at night. Not wanting the enemy to find out, the British credited carrots with improving night vision of the defense gunners. 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!
Red Cabbage: This cabbage has a slightly sweet and peppery flavor. I can't wait to make some fish tacos with red cabbage slaw! Here is a recipe for red cabbage and carrot slaw
Golden Zucchini: is a beautiful variety of zucchini, I'm going to try my best to get 1 of each color in the share, but we will have to see how the plants produce this week. Golden zucchini can be used the same as regular zucchini, it just adds a brilliant color to your stir fry.
