Kale and Strawberry Smoothies

Planting is the theme right now as we get the last of our summer crops in the ground.   It certainly has been a challenge to get working in the ground with all of the rains we have had.   Our melons and winter squash were planted last week, and we are currently trellising tomatoes and interplanting cucumbers with the tomatoes.

Sad news that I will not be baking anymore until we harvest our grains again in August.   For those of you who love our bread, it will return later this summer.   It is kind of a nice transition to harvesting and weeding all of our gardens anyway.   I will have more time to give the growing more attention now that I am not baking.   Our grains are almost out, and the whole reason I bake is because I can use our very own homegrown, certified organic, non GMO grains.   We have a lovely field for harvest this summer, and I will start baking when it’s ready.

We do have lots of growing going on now too!

Kale and Strawberry Smoothie
1 cup Kale
1 cup Strawberries
1 cup of plain greek yogurt
1 cup of ice
1 tablespoon chia seeds (these can be purchased at Everything Natural in Altoona, Wholesome Living Marketplace in Bedford or Fisher’s Country store in Cessna)
1 tablespoon honey
Combine ingredients in a blender and run on high until the kale appears to be well incorporated.
 The CSA’s will be all market choice this week.   Half shares will have a credit of  $11.00, Regular shares will have a credit of $21.00 and large shares will have a credit of  $32.00.   This way you will be able to really customize what you get this week.
