Little did we know that arugula could be used in so many recipes! From pesto, to creamed arugula to classic salads. Needless to say, we’ve thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful Fall green.
Tommy and I have ventured into gardening alongside our hives and the results have been: great family time; tasty and nutritious local food; more than we can eat! So, we’ve started selling our produce and we gave out the following recipe last week to those who bought a bag of arugula, radishes or pecans.
If you haven’t tried some fresh produce grown here in East Hill be sure to drop by Wednesday! We’ll be up early cutting fresh greens and vegetables then heading to 10th and Cervantes, so come on by, we’d love to see you.
