What do these fruits, vegetables, and herbs all have in common?

Carrot, Cucumber, Celery, Spinach, Lettuce, Kale, Arugula, Tomato, Beet, Cabbage, Strawberry, Blueberry, Raspberry, Apple, Melon, Grape, Pear, Mint, Basil.

They are all excellent in smoothies and green juices!   Also, this list of produce is quickly becoming available locally (and famously at Bertrand Farm).

Here are two of our house favorite recipes:

 

Green Pear Eye-Opener

  • 1 ripe pear
  • 5 inch cucumber
  • 2 cups spinach
  • ½ cup grapes
  • 1 carrot
  • 3 stalks celery
  • 1-2 cups water

 

Sweet and spicy V-8

  • 1 apple
  • 1 tomato
  • 3 stalks celery
  • 1 carrot
  • 3 inch cucumber
  • ½ cup strawberries
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 cup arugula

 

Planting Potatoes

The soil temperatures have been about 20 days behind schedule this spring. We are planting potatoes a bit later than usual but making good time of it. We will plant several plantings before June 10. We’ll look forward to new potatoes in 10 weeks.
