What’s In The Box? September 8-14
Full of Flavor
Stacked with beautiful late-season produce—from tomatillos and heirloom tomatoes to peppers, cucumbers, sweet corn, purple carrots and more—this week’s box packs in the flavor (and brings a little heat, too!). Accented by peppery edible flowers, fragrant herbs including garlic and Thai basil, as well as a fiery hot sauce crafted from lush cucumber and Bird’s Eye chiles from Seattle’s Häxan Ferments, this vibrant lineup also includes a fresh baguette, our own farm-fresh eggs, and a beautiful mix of salad greens. Enjoy!
Here’s what you’ll find in your box this week:
Cucumber Bird’s Eye Hot Sauce
A celebration of all things green, this lacto-fermented beauty from Seattle-based Häxan Ferments mixes lush cucumber with a fiery wallop from tiny Bird’s Eye chiles. Lemongrass and lime zest bring fragrant citrus notes, and herbaceous Thai basil rounds it all out.
Mixed Edible Flowers
Bright and cheery edible blooms to add color and spice to your salads this week!
Fresh Summer Fruit
Juicy Galia melon grown here in Snohomish as well as white donut peaches.
Baked just for us by our favorite small bakery in nearby Snohomish, this fresh baguette embodies classic French baking with a delightfully-crisp crust and an airy interior.
Mille Prosecco Millesimato Extra-Dry DOC
Fabulously lively and light at every glass, this extra-dry Italian Prosecco features a bouquet of apple and pear notes as well as hints of light citrus.
Farm Fresh Eggs
As they spend lots of time outdoors in their run, our small flock of heritage breed laying hens are enjoying succulent popweed pulled from the gardens along with an extra helping of grain to supplement their diet, continuing to give us fresh eggs in beautiful shades of brown, beige and cream.
Seasonal Organic Greens
A beautiful mix of salad greens.
Seasonal Organic Fruit & Vegetables
This week’s produce selection also includes cucumbers, purple carrots, tomatillos, sweet corn, lemon cucumber, Shintokiwa cucumber, Walla Walla sweet onions, Shimonita Negi onions and the first of the Jimmy Nardello peppers. Also included: Copia tomatoes, a show-stopping sweet, juicy variety swirled with color and stripes throughout, as well as heirloom tomatoes and then even more tomatoes in red and black shades.
Fresh Garden Herbs
Italian garlic, parsley and Thai basil from the herb garden at Bella Luna.
