Friends of the Farm-

Happy Friday! Happy Fourth!

Wishing you a happy holiday weekend.

We're up to something fun this week! In our harvest of Mokum Carrots for your CSA box we've dug-up two sets of these "Lover's Carrots" (seen in the photo). Find one of these bunches in your CSA box this week, snap a photo, and tag @UmbelRoots and you'll get an addition of 1 doz eggs in next week's delivery, on us. Best of luck!

This week's recipe features a quick beet tzatziki which can be enjoyed at this week's picnic or summer barbecue. It's a great complement to many of this week's vegetables and your favorite crudité.

Reminder that this and other past newsletters from this CSA quarter can now be found via our website at In the case of wanting to revisit a recipe, produce guide, or past playlist they are all collected here under the Newsletter Archive tab. We will continue to update each week.

This week's playlist has a splash of summer. Rumble by Link Wray, Oakland's-own Tower of Power, and The Ramone's Rockaway Beach all invoke the summer spirit. Not to be missed is Bob Dylan's take on a summer picnic as you enjoy yours this holiday weekend!

All our best from the farm,
Tom & William
