Veggie Sale this week

Available at the Veggie Sale on the Green Bay Campus this week:

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.

Lime Basil-$3/bag
Spice up your basil experience with this incredible lime basil. This heirloom seed originates from Thailand and has a true lime smell and flavor. You could add this to oils, salad dressings, pestos, or really any dish that could use a refreshing twist.

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, oregano, thyme, dill, and rosemary. Please specify which herb you would like so I know what to harvest for you.

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.

Green Bell Peppers-$4/bag
A classic green bell pepper to add to anything you need. I have personally been loving to roast the peppers and then add them into a homemade hummus.

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.

Beets-$3/bundle
Enjoy a bundle of these beautiful deep reddish/purple beets. These beets are perfect pickled, fresh, cooked, or in borscht. Enjoy the health benefits of fiber, folate, manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C. Beetroots and beetroot juice have been associated with numerous health benefits, such as, improved blood flow and lower blood pressure over a period of time.

Red Russian Kale- $4/bag
Add some variety to your greens life with this kale. Stems are purple; leaves are flat, toothed, and dark green with purple veins. This plants also has leaves that are more tender compared to other kales. Great for salads and light cooking.

Rainbow Swiss Chard-$3/bagThe 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.

Butterhead Lettuce-$4/bag
This lettuce has the thick, crispy leaves that you’ve been looking for to make the perfect lettuce wraps! Also great in tacos!

Oakleaf Lettuce-$4/bag
This lettuce is some of my (Libby) 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.

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.

Motherwort-$2/bag
Motherwort is a plant in the mint family, although it does not taste minty. It is bitter and I recommend adding a natural sugar to it if you are consuming it in tea form. Motherwort is a highly praised plant in herbal medicine. It is said to help with heart conditions, anxiety, absence of menstrual periods, intestinal gas, and over-active thyroid. I encourage you to do some research and see if this plant is right for you!

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!

Video: Garden partners

Campus Garden Intern Libby Schmit and faculty member Debra Pearson (Human Biology, Nutrition Science/Dietetics) take us behind the scenes to the campus gardens. The gardens and hoop house provide more than an opportunity to consume fresh, pesticide free produce. It’s also an applied learning opportunity for students. UW-Green Bay’s Sustainability Committee financially supports the intern each year along with profits made from summer’s veggie sales. Libby helps with harvesting, planting, watering and weeding along with the Wednesday sales. “The goal is just to promote some healthy produce,” Libby says. Watch the video on YouTube.
