“Hitch your wagon to a star.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
We had a great time with Logan this weekend. He graduated with flying colors and we had a wonderful visit. Hoping he will be able to travel this direction this summer.
Farm News: All the animals and vegetables survived our absence. My late garden is struggling for some reason. I seeded carrots 5 times starting in March in my high tunnel and still no luck. Sometimes it is just that way! I will try again today.
What’s in the bucket this week?: summer squash and/or green beans, Napa cabbage, multi colored beets, kohlrabi, lettuce, greens (kale and collard), snow peas or sugar snap peas, radishes.
Napa cabbage and snow pea slaw
1/2 pound snow peas, trimmed and strings discarded
1 1/2 pounds Napa cabbage, cut into thin shreds (about 9 cups)
2 medium carrots, shredded
1 tablespoon ginger juice
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
In a large saucepan of boiling water blanch snow peas 15 seconds and transfer with a slotted spoon to a bowl of ice and cold water to stop cooking. Drain snow peas well and slice thin diagonally. In large bowl toss snow peas with remaining ingredients and salt and pepper to taste.
