Rainbow OMG Weekly Post 7/12/22

Lingering Green Tomatoes

What a unique Spring we are having, the incessant rain and cool weather have certainly slowed down the beginning of our warm season crops and it feels like each week I promise ripe tomatoes yet we are still waiting. We have hundreds of green tomatoes slowly ripening on the vine and can’t wait to share them with all of you next week. Our current crop of Lettuce is the best we have grown in a a few months and we have plentiful Carrots so make sure to order some this week.

Some of our products may be a little different to what customers are used to so we will be providing Product Profiles in our Weekly Post and in a dedicated page on our website. This will provide recipe ideas and nutritional information for all of the vegetables and products we offer.

Product Focus: Carrots

Everyone is familiar with carrots. They can be eaten raw or cooked and are one of the most popular root vegetables on Earth.

Did you know that the original carrot was purple? It is rumoured that the orange carrots we know and love today originated in 17th Century Holland where growers bred orange varieties to gain favour of Dutch Royalty, orange being the colour of the royal family. This may or may not be true but it is a good story anyway 🙂

In terms of nutrition carrots contain:

  • Vitamins A, C and K
  • Thiamin, Niacin and Vitamin B6
  • Potassium
  • Beta Carotene, Lutein and Zeaxanthin

Carrots can provide the following health benefits and more:

  • Protecting Eye Health
  • Boosting Immune System with Antioxidants
  • Decreasing Risk of Stokes and Heart Disease
  • Protecting Against Cancers
  • Maintaining Oral Health
  • Boosting Skin Health and Wound Repair
  • Protecting Brain Health and Improving Cognitive Function

Order your Carrots today.
