2018 CSA Week 6 Recipes
We’re really pleased with the range of color included in the share this week. We’ve included beautiful golden beets, purple top turnips, and the first of our summer carrots. The great part about all of these root crops is that all of the green tops are edible and delicious! We made a wonderful root vegetable dish that has a lot of flavor with not a lot of ingredients. We also included a few versions of pestos which show the range of delicious flavors leafy greens have to offer. We hope you enjoy the recipes this week!
2018 CSA Week 5 Recipes
The weather is great for growing produce. The shares are getting bigger as the season continues. This week we have fennel for the first time this year. Fennel pairs great with orange and we used that pairing with escrole to make a very healthy and tasty salad. We hope you enjoy our week 5 recipes!
2018 CSA Week 4 Recipes
The wide variety of ingredients in this weeks share makes for some very tasty meals this week. The roasted chicken recipe is a great use of the lemon balm. It takes a little extra work because you have to stuff it under the skin but the final product is worth it. We said this in the flyer but it is worth repeating- store the lemon balm like you would basil, don't put it in the fridge. The gardens are growing and we have a lot more ingredients to work with as the season pushes on.

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.
