Strawberries, Ground Beef, Tomatoes, Spinach and more
The strawberries were a big hit last week so we’ll feature those again this week. Strawberry season is very short in Ohio; this will be our last time to have them until next year!
This week’s bag has a slight “taco salad” theme. We have fresh hoop-house tomatoes, leaf lettuce, cilantro, green onions, and grassfed ground beef. These should pair nicely with our heirloom corn chips, made from organic, heirloom corn varieties grown and produced by Shagbark Seed and Mill Company. I personally never liked corn chips until I had these and I couldn’t put them down!
These corn chips are thick and crunchy. They have organic cornmeal, organic flour, salt, water, and coconut oil in them. They are baked to create a healthy treat. These go great with salsas, dips, and of course, taco salad! This will be a product we will have regularly on the back of the truck so you can get extras in the future for your picnics and cookouts.
Rounding out this week’s bag are eggs/milk and braising greens, mostly field grown spinach and swiss chard. Oh, and this week we have the first of this year’s zucchinis coming in. There won’t be a lot, so everyone will likely get 1 zucchini (2 if they are small), but those will be coming on more heavily in the coming weeks.
