Never Better Naturals
Thanks to the sun, we’re all able to soak up much needed Vitamin D!  If you are an outdoors person, like me, you can be sure that you are protected from the risks that the sun brings without accepting the risks that come with wearing sunscreen.  Our “Beam Banish” is a light, creamy formulation from 100% non-GMO plant based sources!  It protects at an approximate SPF level of 40-50, without white residue or a greasy feel.  It will also stay strong in water for up to two hours!  Stop by and sample some.
Of course, we will also have our chemical free natural herbal remedies, baby care, facial care, lotions, soaps, bug spray, lip butter (also with a natural SPF of 10-15), lotions, ad cleaning products!  Please don’t be shy about asking to try anything- we always have samples!  Also, take advantage of the available refills on bug spray, sanitizer, and Turn Back Time serum.  It’ll help the Earth and your wallet at the same time!  See you there!  Rachel

Shady Side Farm of Holland
Planning on a cookout for the 4th of July? I have a new recipe for a cold bean salad with a tangy dressing and some crunch. It calls for Zebra beans, but you could also use Painted Lady beans. It would be a great option to make ahead and take along to a food-related gathering.

Saturday I will bring along an array of our certified organic edible dry beans and Grassfields Farm’s organic aged cheese made from unpasturized cows’ milk. I will also ake a little bit of wool roving, some felting kits and some hand dyed wool yarn for those of you who need a crafty summer project.

If you need specific wool items, or would like more than 2# of a certain type of beans, please email me before 6 pm on Friday.

Cooking notes:
• Garlic Scapes – all can be used except for the tapered tip which is tough.  Chop small or coarse and add to eggs, stir fries, or anything that you would put garlic in.  Garlic lovers might try tossing them in oil and grilling.  Cooked scapes are less intense than bulb garlic, something like the green onion of the garlic world.
Kohlrabi & Apple Slaw
Ingredients
• 3/4 cup mayonnaise
• 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
• 1 tablespoon lemon juice
• 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
• 1 teaspoon white sugar
• 4 kohlrabi bulbs, peeled and grated
• 4 apples – peeled, cored, and diced
• salt and ground black pepper to taste

Cooking Notes
• Garlic Scapes – all can be used except for the tapered tip which is tough.  Chop small or coarse and add to eggs, stir fries, or anything that you would put garlic in.  Garlic lovers might try tossing them in oil and grilling.  Cooked scapes are less intense than bulb garlic, something like the green onion of the garlic world.
• Salad Turnips – tender white turnips with greens.  Roots can be eaten raw without peeling (salad!) and greens are cook-able like spinach or kale.
• Red Mustard – while it is spicy raw, it mellows in cooking.  Combine with a sweet sauce like sweet and sour or sweet chili.  It does well with roasted or grilled asparagus.
• Salad Mix – 5 or so varieties of lettuce plus baby kale, arugula, tatsoi, and mizuna

Returning Vendor!
Little Red Organics Farm of Freesoil
With the happy return of spring greens and lettuce, we find ourselves loading up meals with these simple staples.  Here are some ideas. . .
Grilled Bok Choy (you can substitue Komatsuna here too! – the stems are edible)
Cut larger bok choy in half, leave small plants whole.  Wash thoroughly, shake dry and toss in a bowl with salt and sesame oil.  Grill on low until the larger stems are tender.  Hit with an acid like rice wine vinegar or lime juice if desired.
Salad on the Farm
At the moment our leaf lettuces are looking awesome!  We combine one head of romaine with a lighter lettuce like New Red Fire or Red Sails for some varying texture.  After adding whatever else we have on-hand (cucumbers and basil at the moment) we hit it with EVO, lime juice, and sea salt (poached egg?  ham?!).  Boom.  Salad.
This week at market:
Seedless Cucumbers
Pea and Sunflower Shoots
Basil
Bok Choy
Komatsuna
Leaf Lettuces
Romaine Lettuce
Salad Mix (red and green leaf with baby kale, mizuna, arugula, tatsoi, and red mustard)

Shady Side Farm of Holland
Busy week! Lots of tillage, corn planting, haying, and a new baby calf… I’ll make time to come to market this Saturday, though. I will have along 16 varieties of our certified organic dry beans. Have you tried the Painted Lady bean? I like to cook a bunch of them up, and refrigerate them in a mason jar with balsamic vinaigrette (or some other nice dressing)—ready to add to my salad greens at lunchtime. A 1/2 cup serving of cooked beans has as much fiber as FIVE raw apples, and around 7-8 grams of protein.

In addition, I’ll have along our stone ground corn meal, and some wool yarn fresh from the farm. I will also have along aged cheese from Grassfields Farm. The milk used to make this cheese is certified organic raw milk (meaning it is not pasteurized or homogenized).

Please note: My plan for the summer is to attend Sweetwater Market every other Saturday. So when you see me, stock up on enough good food to last for two weeks!
