Summer 2017 - Week #12

Featured Producer: Julie Rubaud of Red Wagon Plants/Red Wagon Herbs

As stated on the Red Wagon Herbs website: "The true beginnings of Red Wagon Herbs arose when Julie was just fourteen years old, chopping and prepping herbs in the kitchen of her father's restaurant, Gerard's. Julie's love for herbs came to fruition when, at twenty years old, she grew an herb garden for the restaurant. Later, as a vegetable farmer at the Intervale, Julie always grew herbs and herb plants alongside her veggies." Julie has been a part of the local food community here in the Burlington area for years, and a longtime partner of the Intervale Center and the Intervale Food Hub. Her certified organic herbs are a highlight of our Vermont Vegetable subscriptions throughout the year!

This week, we're featuring fresh oregano from Red Wagon Plants, which is for adding a punch of flavor to a wide range of dishes, and pairs perfectly with many of the veggies in your basket. You can see Julie's recipe for "Best Dressed Pasta" with cherry tomatoes and fresh herbs on her blog!
