Theme: Busy Bees
Did you know? Bees are the prime pollinators of one-third of all crops worldwide. Honeybees’ pollination services are estimated to be worth $10 billion to $15 billion a year. Scientists have noted a sharpening decline in bee population in combo with poor bee health. Here's how you can help: wild flowers! Honeybees need varied diets just like we do. For our region, good stuff to plant and scatter includes thistle, milkweed, wild geranium, goldenrod, and wild bergamot. Keep our bee buddies buzzin'.

Sunflower Oil Sunflowers are among the oldest oilseed crops in North America. Unrefined sunflower oil is low in saturated fat and rich in oleic, monounsaturated fatty acids, and Omega-3, 6, and 9 and is a great source of vitamin E. It tastes so fresh! Full Sun Company (OG - Cold expeller pressed)
Storage: Store in pantry until label date. 
“Sunny” Dijon Vinaigrette 
1 tbs Dijon Mustard, 2 Cloves of Garlic (minced,) 1/2 Clove Shallot (minced), 1/3 cup Sunflower Oil, 1/3 cup Canola Oil, 1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar (to taste) ,1/2 tsp. Maple Syrup + pinch of Salt
Cauliflower Cauliflower has an exceptional nutritional density, which means it contains substantial amounts of vitamins and minerals with very few calories. Mark Twain calls cauliflower "cabbage with a college education". For a quick fix, sauté cauliflower florets and sliced garlic in olive oil until browned and tender. To boost the flavor, toss with raisins, pine nuts, crushed red pepper, and salt. Klein's Kill Fruit Farm (FAM) 
Storage: One week in the fridge.
Cauliflower Popcorn: Kid-friendly alert! May even rival kale chips. Snip the cauliflower head and reserve the core and stems for another use. Coat with salt and olive oil, then spread on a lined baking sheet. Roast in the oven at 425 degrees for a half hour or so, turning the cauliflower over halfway through. Serve warm and toss with Parmesan cheese.

Storage: 5-7 days in the fridge. 
Kale Chips
Strip the leaves off the stems, place in a plastic bag with a little oil and soy sauce mixture (by little we mean enough to lightly coat—worse thing you can do is add too much), shake the bag, and place in the oven at 280 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

Asian Basil (aka Asian Cinnamon Basil aka Thai Basil) Thai basil is wonderful eaten raw, slivered, and added to salads, both your plain old cucumber-tomato salad or with meats. Its hardy leaves stand up especially well to cooking—their flavor infuses readily into food and the leaves don't wilt quite as much as Italian sweet basil's would. Try Thai basil in simmered dishes and stir-fry. Rexcroft Farm (IPM)
Storage: Basil will turn black in the fridge. Trim the ends and stick in a glass with about an inch of water and loosely cover with a plastic bag. 7-10 days in the pantry. To freeze: wash, chop, and allow to dry thoroughly. Once dry, transfer to ice cube trays with a little bit of water, oil, and lemon juice.

Storage: 1-3 days in the pantry until ripe, once ripe you can refrigerate but it is not recommended (may damage flavor and texture). To speed ripening, store in a paper bag.
