Order your veggies today: Fresh, local, organic

Available this week in the weekly Veggie Sale:

Italian Basil-$3/bag
Try this lovely Eleonora and Large Italian Leaf basil combo. This is a great option if you are looking to get into pesto making, to add on top of pizzas, or to incorporate in soups and salads. It can be used in both fresh and dried form. This basil has the rich, traditional basil flavor that we all know and love.

Fresh Chives-$2/bag
Get a large bag of these chives which are a wonderful addition to many of your staple dishes. Chives are rich source of vitamin K, C, and folic acid. They are also high in minerals such as manganese, magnesium and iron. If you are worried about having too many you can always freeze some for a later date!

Fresh Herbs-$3/bag
We have a variety of fresh herbs ready for harvest in the gardens. Add some fresh flavor right away or dry these for later, either way you can’t go wrong! We have the following herbs available; parsley, sage, dill, oregano, thyme, and rosemary. Please specify which herb you would like so I know what to harvest for you. I can also do a combination.

Thai Lavender Frog Eggs-$4/bag
In central Thailand, the natives refer to these small lavender and cream eggplants as “frog eggs.” These eggplant are about the size and form of a cherry tomato. They are very beautiful and probably something you haven’t tried before!

Sweet Banana Peppers-$4/bag
Try these organic and highly flavorful sweet banana peppers! These are a long, yellow pepper with a mild kick. They complement most dinner dishes. I love adding these to stir frys, sandwiches, and in curry! If you haven’t tried a banana pepper before I highly recommend it.

Mixed Greens-$4/bag
Enjoy this lovely mix of organic salad greens that have a dynamic range of leaf shapes and colors.The flavors are equally diverse: spicy to mild to slightly sweet. This mix includes red mustard, green mustard, arugula, Chinese cabbage, pac choi, and tatsoi. Varieties are subject to change depending upon availability.

Red and Green Butterhead Lettuce-$4/bag
This lettuce has the thick, crispy leaves that you’ve been looking for to make the perfect lettuce wraps! This week I will be doing a mixed bag of both a deep purple/red and traditional green butterhead lettuce. The green butterhead lettuce has slightly larger leaves than the red.

Oakleaf Lettuce-$4/bag
This lettuce is some of my favorite! As the name suggests, this lettuce has the shape of an oak tree leaf. The leaves are an attractive, deep burgundy with a green interior to make for a stunning contrast. The flavor is mild enough to be used in just about everything.

Rainbow Swiss Chard-$3/bag
The glossy dark green leaves have crisp multicolored stalks. This fun Swiss chard is sure to add the pop of color your dishes need with its range of orange, yellow, pink, and red stalks. Swiss chard leaves can be eaten raw or cooked but are less bitter when cooked.

Borage Leaves/Flowers-$3/bag
With a taste comparable to that of cucumber, borage has various culinary applications. This herb can be used in soups, salads, borage-lemonade, strawberry-borage cocktails, preserves, borage jelly, various sauces, cooked as a stand-alone vegetable, or used in desserts in the form of fresh or candied flowers. I like to use the leaves for tea and dry them in a similar way to the chamomile flowers. Please specify if you would like the leaves or the flowers of the plant.

Green Bay nears record for wettest year with three months left, media talks to Prof. Fermanich

Wednesday’s rainfall inches us closer to breaking the record for the all-time wettest year dating back to the 1880’s. And we still have 111 days left in the year. “When we get this much rain this often, it has to go somewhere, so it either heads to our streams and rivers or it percolates down into the groundwater,” UW-Green Bay Prof. Kevin Fermanich explained, “and over time the water level in the ground, our aquifers and water tables, come up higher and higher and they’re basically at the surface in many areas now.” Fermanich says the record rains are already hampering agriculture, causing erosion and water quality issues due to runoff. Equally troubling is the urban impact, especially if this wet weather becomes the norm. See more via Green Bay nears record for wettest year — with 3 months left.
