What’s In The Box? June 27-July 3

Garden-Grown Delights
From the hoophouse to the herb beds, and the orchards to the vegetable plots, the Bella Luna gardens are bursting to life with fresh produce! Thus, this week, you’ll enjoy such summer ingredients as sunflower and fava shoots, red bunching onions, peppery chives, turnips, and a wealth of crisp salad greens, all served up alongside accompaniments like freshly-baked Pain au Levain bread, locally-foraged Morel mushrooms, farmstead eggs and umami-rich dulse seaweed. It’s a colorful taste of the season; enjoy!

Here’s what you’ll find in your box this week:

Locally Foraged Morel Mushrooms

These seasonal mushrooms are only available in the wild, developing a cult following of local ‘mushroom hunters’ who roam our forests looking for this treat of nature. Woodsy and earthy, yet delicate and rich, they are excellent in a variety of dishes, or simply sautéed in butter or olive oil with a squeeze of lemon and enjoyed on their own.

Garibaldi Dulse Seaweed

Rich in iodine, and high in iron, vitamins A and B, and potassium, this fresh dulse is sustainably farmed on the Oregon Coast. A complete protein full of umami flavor, it can be eaten fresh, or enjoyed roasted, sautéed, or fried.

Pain au Levain Bread

This slightly-nutty, slightly-sweet sourdough bread epitomizes French country-style baking with a chewy crust and light, airy interior. Baked by our favorite bakery in Snohomish, this traditional Pain au Levain is crafted using the bakery’s own sourdough starter.

Tolosa Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Tolosa purposefully maintains the freshness of this Sauvignon Blanc, which is cultivated in a cool climate pocket in the central coast of California, by hand-picking the grapes in the early morning hours before dawn and fermenting it at very low temperature. It was aged in tank, on the lees, to accentuate richness in the mid-palate and features notes of limoncello, lime zest, grapefruit rinds, gooseberry, lemon blossom and a chalky limestone finish.

Farm Fresh Eggs

As they spend more time outdoors in the sunnier weather, our heritage breed laying hens are enjoying an extra helping of grain to supplement their diet, and continue to give us fresh eggs in beautiful shades of brown, beige and cream.

Seasonal Organic Greens

Enjoy another bountiful harvest of tender greens this week: mini red and green Romaine, endive frisée, mini Cegolaine, fava and sunflower shoots, and Belgian endive.

Seasonal Organic Fruit & Produce

This week’s vibrant produce selection also includes Walla Walla sweet onions, red bunching onions and Hakurei turnips.

Garden-Grown Herbs

Freshly-snipped chives from the walled garden at Bella Luna.
