Crop List: Fingerling Potatoes, Rainbow Carrots, Onions, Garlic, Tomatoes Sugar Dumpling Squash, Murdoc Cabbage or Red Cabbage
Last week's frost did more damage then we thought. The broccoli and the cauliflower are not very happy, but we are hoping they can dig deep and bounce back. The Cosmic Mix is taking a break and we are hoping for some more. I know I want at least one more salad! Until then, we will begin digging lots of potatoes and carrots!
Carrots of the rainbow! We hope you enjoy the different varieties we grow. It is fun to step outside the world of orange carrots. Most carrots grown when the carrot was first cultivated were purple, yellow and white. Around the 17th century the Dutch were known to be carrot farmers and the reason we now have orange carrots? Political. The Dutch Revolt against the Spanish was led by William the Orange. To celebrate the conqueror who brought them freedom from Spanish rule the Dutch began to grow orange carrots instead of yellow, purple and white carrots. Quite a tribute! I want to assure you we grow our multi colored carrots with no political figures in mind...past or present!
Mixing up the color of foods can make meals more interesting. Cook up an all purple carrot soup or a rainbow carrot salad. Do a taste test and see which color tastes the best to you. Kids love to be blindfolded for a really "serious" comparison and it is really fun to hear their reactions! Slip a store bought carrot into the mix also!
