Here’s what our members are receiving this week! 

Spring Green Onions

Use the bulbs as any other onion and use the greens like chives. Chop em up and sprinkle on soups and salads. 

Brassica Braising Mix: Assorted Kale,  

Sautée these greens as a side dish or add them to your morning smoothie for a burst of nutrients.


Blackberries are wonderfully nutritious. Eat them fresh, bake them into pancakes, or enjoy as desert with whipped cream or ice cream.

Lemon Balm

Enjoy this lemony herb in salads, or as a seasoning for a lemon risotto/rice dish. A friend of mine recently had a steak with lemon balm seasoning and she gives a great review for the combo. You can also enjoy lemon balm as a tea.

New Potatoes

You’ll get to try two new types this week: “Ozette” and “All Blue”. Ozette is a heirloom fingerling that grows in a tubular shape. All Blue potatoes are just as they sound: a blue purplish hue inside and out.These potatoes have extra antioxidants called anthocyanins,  which are found in blue colored fruits and vegetables.

Fresh Garlic

Yum! Garlic goes great with the spring onions for seasoning any dish. Try them with your new potatoes this week.

Wild Cherry Plums

These delicious little bite-sized plums are just ripening on the wild cherry plum trees in the food forest.
