Trying all kinds of vegetables--some were completely unknown to me. Celery Root--love it. Chard (several kinds)--love it. Collard Greens-love it. Had no idea there were so many different types of cabbage. Made fresh kraut, made salads, cabbage rolls, cabbage soup. Had a lot of cabbage over the last few months! Nash's is well-known for their organic carrots which are sweet and crisp. I loved the red and golden beets, but the hubby did not. Well, you can't win them all.
Fresh organic fruit including apricots, pears, and apples. Newly pressed apple cider--very, very good! Wonderful cilantro, parsley, and onions. The onions are a close second to the Eastern Washington onion, Walla Walla Sweet.
Nash's also grinds their own organic flour--very good. Produces organic rolled oats--didn't know there was such a thing--very good.
The kitchen remodel threw a monkey wrench into the whole thing, so had to give away some. Will try again next summer, for sure. Support your local farm! Sign up for your CSA program!!
