Beachwood Canyon Pick-up
Mike's son Nicky loves coming to pick-up every week. This week, he drove the bounty home!
Here's what Farmer John had for us at the Beachwood Canyon pick-up yesterday:
Beets - red and golden
Arugula - strip the leaves off the stem and eat the flowers too
Tatsoi - Chinese spinach
Wildfire lettuce head
Romaine - young green and red
Baby Bok Choy
Negi Onions - Japanese
Enjoy! And thank you to our lovely young volunteers yesterday - Willow and Sophia. The girls helped distribute veggies to shareholders as part of the community service program at Immaculate Heart School.
Also, I met Sasha Kanno, the director of Wrigley Garden in Long Beach. She drove up to check out what Silver Lake Farms is up to. Sasha is doing some great work in Long Beach. She plans to start a CSA soon, producing on an acre right in Long Beach City. Go for it Sasha!
