Rainbow OMG Weekly Post 14/09/22

Eat The Rainbow

At Rainbow OMG we chose “Eat The Rainbow” as our slogan for two reasons. Firstly when purchasing and consuming our produce you are literally eating part of the town of Rainbow, we grow in Rigg Street, not Queensland. Secondly eating the rainbow is a directive to follow for optimum health. Every colour visible in a plant co-relates to a particular Phytonutrient which in turn assist our bodies in alleviating disease (dis-ease) and maintaining optimum performance. Our signature product to help you Eat The Rainbow is Rainbow Chard which we grow all year and is currently in growing in abundance thanks to all the recent rain. We encourage customers to try some Rainbow Chard this week in your order.

Notes From The Garden

This is a Root week in the Lunar Calendar so we have Direct Seeded Carrots and Beetroots while also cropping out a mature bed of Carrots. Our Garlic beds are looking very healthy, our Onions have really put on growth with the slight temperature increase and abundant rain and our cover crop of Daikon Radish is looking massive and will be turned in very soon in order to plant Ginger and Turmeric. We hope to have some Garlic for sale later this year.

We will be making our next batch of Gardenkraut very soon. This will be a more traditional Kraut with Red Cabbage forming the base.

The latest Sunshine Salve is ready! Our new jars are 2.5 x the size of our previous jars so we have raised the price but increased the value for money. There are less than 20 available this time around as we are reserving quite a bit for our growing family. The larger jars will last a very long time, likely more than a year for most people.

A reminder that some of our range is limited so please get your orders in quickly to secure your desired organic vegetables.

This week the Garden is providing Butterhead Lettuce, Rainbow Chard, Spinach, Celery (Limited) Red Russian Kale, Broccoli (limited), Carrots, Beetroots, Coriander and Parsley.

Crops currently growing but not ready this week are Sugar Snap Peas, Bok Choi,  and Red Cabbage.

Rainbow OMG Buyers Hubs
Jeparit, Warracknabeal, Hopetoun, Beulah, Nhill, Dimboola etc

Are you interested in our delicious vegetables but live just that little bit too far away to be worth the drive to Rainbow just to pick up one order? 

We are looking for Rainbow OMG supporters from other towns in the region who are interested in working with us to increase the distribution of our organic vegetables and healthy lifestyle products. Buyers Hub organisers will be rewarded for their efforts.

If you would like a Rainbow OMG Buyers Hub in your town, please email “evan@rainbowomg.com” with your name and town and we will be in contact ASAP to kick start the process.

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: Rainbow Chard
The ever beautiful Rainbow Chard is simply multi coloured Silverbeet. Rather than just green and white Silverbeet, Rainbow Chard comes in red, pink, orange, yellow, white with pink stripes, white and more allowing you to Eat The Rainbow. Rainbow Chard is far more heat tolerant that traditional Spinach and is generally available all year. 

Rainbow Chard is a nutritional powerhouse being low in calories and containing:
  • Vitamin’s K, A, C & E
  • Manganese
  • Magnesium
  • Iron
  • Potassium
  • Copper
  • Anti Oxidants
  • Phytonutrients and more.

Rainbow Chard can be best described as salty spinach crossed with celery. It is best served lightly cooked and is generally prepared by cutting the leaves off the stem, then slicing the stem up like celery and the leaves like spinach.

Rainbow Chard can be used a spinach substitute in any cooked meal such as:

  • Soups
  • Stews
  • Stir Fry
  •  “Spinach” Pie
  • Added to baked beans
  • An ingredient in vegetable stock

Rainbow Chard grows all year in climate and is an important staple in a seasonal diet. We invite you to try Rainbow Chard today.
