Arugula Perfect for wilting on pizza or adding some pizzazz to your salads. Kilpatrick Family Farm (CO)  
 


 
Radishes Crunchy and peppery! Perfect with a dab of butter and a sprinkle of salt for a snack. Common Hands (OG)
Carrots A colorful, versatile standard. Roasted, steamed, marinated, or raw, you can't go wrong with some orange on your plate. Try carrots a new way this week—maybe pureed in this delicious and easy Carrot Ginger Curry Soup pre-tested on fussy kids. Juniper Hill Farm (CO)
Delicata Squash Unique for its thin skin (no peeling or removing neccessary) and sweet flesh. Try roasting to soften the flesh and skin. Juniper Hill Farm (CO)
Spinach is best when eaten raw or lightly braised. To braise, toss with hot oil and garlic for a few minutes and then add splash of liquid. We like to add Parmesan cheese. If you choose to steam the spinach, wash and steam for just 5-10 minutes. This preparation method preserves nutrient content. Markristo Farm (CO)
Cameo Apples were discovered by chance by the Caudle family in a Washington state orchard in 1987. Its parentage is uncertain; it may be a cross between a Red Delicious and a Golden Delicious, since it was found near those orchards. It is bright red striped over creamy orange, firm and crisp with an aromatic flavor. Fix Brothers Farm (FAM)
Japanese Turnips These mild and sweet turnips don't need to be peeled—just give them a good wash. You can cook these or eat them raw. We suggest shredding them and adding to a salad. You can prepare the turnip greens as you would kale or mustard greens. Katchkie Farm (CO) & Markristo Farm (CO)

Storage
  • Tip: Any item you would cook, you can also freeze.
  • Tip 2: A dull knife conspires against you and slows you down. A sharp knife makes your food taste better (and look better, too). NY Times
  • Pasta people! Keep it in the fridge 4-5 days or freeze it.
  • Any green needs to be as dry as possible, wrapped in a paper towel in a plastic bag and kept in the fridge crisper.
  • Don't refrigerate the squash. 
  • Radishes, turnips & carrots should last a while.

Key for growing methods:
  • CO - Certified Organic
  • OG - Organically Grown (farm uses organic methods but does not have Certification).
  • IPM - Integrated Pest Management (methods used to reduce the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers)
  • FAM - Family farm (farm often uses organic and IPM methods but may also use chemical fertilizers and pesticides. As a general rule small farms use far fewer chemicals than large industrialized operations).
  • Non-GMO - None of our products are GMO.
