Well, well well - Missouri heat finally decided it wanted to stick around.


We are busily planting daily and starting new seeds in our greenhouse.


What's In Your Box

half share/full share

Petite Beets with Greens - $3.50

Two bunches / four bunches


Like many vegetables, beets are so much more than what most people realize.


You will get a variety of colors of beets, ranging from gold to deep purple.


Origin: many scientists believe that beets originated from the sea beet - which grew along the coasts of Eurasia. They were first cultivated - not for their delicious roots - but their edible leaves.

the ancient Greeks referred to them as teutlion because their leaves resembled squid tentacles.

How Do I Use Them?

You can use the roots for roasting, grilling, soup/puree making, and so much more.

The leaves are unique and an excellent substitute for spinach or cabbage in a recipe.


How do I Store Them?

It would be best if you separated the roots and tops immediately when you get them. The leaves will continue to try to grow (even in your refrigerator), which will result in spongy, soft roots - which no one likes.



Kale, European Mix - $3

2 bags / 4 bags

With this heat, kale won't be around for too much longer, and then we will have to wait until fall to taste this lovely green again. (don't worry - we will have alternatives throughout the summer).


Origin: a staple in Eurasian cuisine, this plant has been cultivated for thousands of years, and in fact, was one of the most widely eaten green in the Middle Ages.


How Do I Use It?

Our kale isn't as tough as the kind you find in the store, so you can go ahead and throw this in your next salad or add it to your next stirfry!

How do I Store It?

The best way to ensure your greens stay as fresh as possible is to wash and spin them as soon as you get them. Then when they are dry - go ahead and store them in an airtight container.


French Breakfast Radishes- $3

1 bunch / 2 bunches



The last of the spring radishes are coming into your box this week.


Origin: Originating in East Asia and spreading west, these little roots became an important crop in the ancient world.


How Do I Use It?

Fresh, pickled, roasted, grilled - you name it - radishes can do it. Their greens have a slight spice and are delicious cooked.


How do I Store It?

It would be best if you separated the roots and tops immediately when you get them. The leaves will continue to try to grow (even in your refrigerator), which will result in spongy, soft roots - which no one likes.


Garlic Scapes - $3

2 bunches / 4 bunches



A true June beauty - these immature flower heads are a treat that can be easy to miss out on.


Origin: Among one of the oldest cultivated crops out there! Egyptian and Indian references to garlic stem back at least 5000 years


How Do I Use It?

I love to substitute or add these instead of garlic or onion in many dishes. It's not as pungent or spicy as clove garlic so that it won't be as strong but will be noticeably more vegetal and fragrant.


How do I Store It?

An airtight container- these don't last super long, so be sure to incorporate them into your dishes soon!


Broccoli Shoots - $3

2 bunches / 4 bunches


We are slowly taking our break from brassicas for the heat of the summer before resuming their celebration in the fall - so here is the spring encore of the family *da da da DAAA* Broccoli Shoots.


How Do I Use It?

The entire plant is edible! Personally, I like to use them as edible paintbrushes + dip them in dressing - but you can also steam, saute, or grill these! One tip that I would mention will be if you are cooking them - separate the leaves from the stem. The stem will take longer to cook- so it should be added and cooked first, with the greens following a minute or two after to wilt.


How do I Store It?

An airtight container- these don't last super long, so be sure to incorporate them into your dishes soon!
