Taste Of The Tropics
Thank you so much to everyone who donated! We got an entire carload of dog and cat donations for the animal shelter and it is so appreciated!!
We will have a little taste of the tropics in this week's share. Baby ginger! The roots don't need to be peeled and the tops can be used the same way you would use lemon grass. Ginger leaves are delicious sauteed or dried for tea/herbs. The stalks are great to simmer in soups for that delicious flavor before pulling out. This is a very hard crop to grow in this climate. We started these babies in March and they are just now ready! So hope you enjoy them. We finally got the tractor back yesterday so this week is sure to be a whirlwind of getting everything into the ground as quickly as we possibly can. Thank you everyone for your concern! We made 1200 feet of raised beds with shovels this past week and have never been more grateful for the tractor.
