2018 CSA Week 23 Recipes
We cant believe it is already week 23. The turkeys are getting bigger by the day which is a constant reminder that thanksgiving is right around the corner. We have the beginnings of frost in the forcast so we’re either covering or getting a final harvest out of all our summer crops. With the drop in temperature our root crops and leafy greeens should sweeten up. We still have a full 5 weeks planned for you, and many hearty recipes on the way. Thank you for supporting our farm and have a wonderful week!
2018 CSA Week 22 Recipes
This week’s share includes several tasty members of the allium family- leeks and bunching onions. Both of these crops are primarily desired for their tender white parts, but the greens are delicious in their own right, and can be used in pestos, in soup stocks, or fried as crispy garnishes. We added some variety to the leafy green rotation by including radish greens, which are tasty sauted, or in a pesto, or in a soup, such as in the recipe on the blog this week. Thank you for supporting our farm, and have a wonderful week!
2018 CSA Week 21 Recipes
Fall is finally here. Even though the weather is a bit colder we have plenty of wonderful veggies for the rest of the year. The cold weather will make the leafy greens produce more sugar and taste even more delicious than they already do. Butternut is a favorite winter squash among many CSA members and we have it again for you this week. We have some big projects coming up on the farm. There are a few more crops to transplant and then we will be installing hoops and covering a large portion of the garden, about 1/3rd of an acre, in greenhoiuse film and row cover. We plan to keep many cold-tolerant crops going throughout the winter months. Check our instagram and facebook this winter to see what winter markets we will be attending.

Whats happening at the farm

Click the link to view our farm blog. Cassie and I will each try to write a blog post as often as we can about what we are up to on the farm. This is meant to be a lighthearted way for us to reflect on what we are doing and talk about what we are trying to do. It also lets the people that support us through our CSA and farmers market see what they are supporting. I'm almost certian that both of us will just write about the cats and dog because they are hilarious, but you will have to read to find out.
