Eat more vegetables.
Theme: IT'S WORKING 
Field Goods founder, Donna, just got off the phone ordering from lovely Joe at Vermont Bean Crafters in preparation for the changing season. Here's what he told us: He can buy additional equipment this season for harvesting beans based on our order. THANK YOU for shifting your purchasing to small farms - it makes a real difference!! They can grow because of you.   
PS the edamame in this week's bag is one of the toughest crops to grow in the Northeast. Hats off to Martin at Markristo Farm in Hillsdale!

Sweet Corn We love fresh summer corn right off the grill or tossed in a salad. For a super easy, fresh summer salad, toss with diced cucumbers and tomatoes, then drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice. Add red onion or garlic and an herb like basil or mint. Migliorelli Farm (IPM) 
Storage: Eat ASAP.

Swiss Chard Cooked chard is a great stand-in for spinach. The stems can be steamed or grilled like asparagus. While Swiss chard is naturally bitter, cooking mellows the flavor. Unless the stems are tender, remove them and just prepare the leaves. You can prepare chard in a jiff by sautéing it in olive oil with some garlic—toss in some chili for a little zip. Barber Farm (OG)
Storage: 1-2 weeks in the fridge.

Storage: Up to 5 days in the fridge in a paper bag. 
Edamame The appetizer of choice in most Japanese restaurants, edamame is an immature soybean for mature eaters though kids & immature adults love 'em as well! To prepare: boil water with salt, add the edamame (no peeling or cutting necessary), cook for 5-6 minutes & strain. You can either serve with the pods or peel and pop out the beans to add to salads, pasta, etc. Markristo Farm (CO)
Storage: 1 week in a plastic bag in the fridge.

STANDARD & FAMILY ONLY Purslane Considered by many to be the most nutritious food in the world...by everyone that doesn't consider kale to be the most nutritious food in the world. Purslane tastes similar to watercress. The stems, leaves and buds are edible and can be used fresh in salads, stir-fried or cooked like spinach. Also try using in soups and stews as a thickening agent. Works well with a lemon vinaigrette and is often paired with mint or feta cheese in salad. Rexcroft Farm (IPM)
Storage: Use fresh. Store wrapped in a moist paper towel in the bag.
