Colvin Family Farm -- Week 23

Large Shares this week include (as seen left to right, top to bottom):

  • Lettuce
  • Arugula
  • Broccoli
  • Stevia
  • Tomatoes
  • Hot peppers
  • Cauliflower
  • Squash (various types)
  • Sweet potatoes
Stevia is an herb often used as a natural sweetener, and it is said that one leaf is about 30-45 times as sweet as ordinary sugar. Even so, it has a negligible effect on blood sugar levels, so it makes a great sweet alternative for diabetics. Try putting a leaf in your hot tea sometime!
