2019 CSA Week 4 Recipes

We’re loving that school’s out for summer because for the past two weeks 3/4 of our farm crew have been working full time over their summer break. We’ve transplanted a TON of crops including beans, okra, winter squash, field tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant, so all of these veggies will be in abundance over the next few months. This week we harvested the first of our summer squash and zucchini. Tomatoes, peppers and eggplant from our high tunnels will be just around the corner. We’re still loving all the spring greens which have great flavor this time of year. Enjoy the spring veggies while they last and have a great week!

2019 CSA Week 3 Recipes
We’re not the type to complain about mother nature’s abundance but this past month’s rainfall has kept some fields pretty soggy around here. Luckily most of our gardens have great drainage and our primary crops are planted in the best locations. Soon enough more fruiting crops will begin producing for us and you’ll be seeing things from the squash and tomato families. This week we included some beautiful beets which are a two for one- delicious roots and greens. The greens are rich and delicious especially cooked, such as in the recipe below.
2019 CSA Week 2 Recipes

Week two is here, and these long spring days have provided us with another bounty of delicious produce. The gardens are starting to take off.  The recipe below and others on the website this week will fill you up on greens without leaving you hungry, despite several being meatless. The tatsoi is delicious to both humans and the flee beetles (tiny bite holes), and obviously pesticide-free. Similarly, the Chinese cabbage has sized up nicely but the early heat this past week has sent the plants into flowering. The brassica family is always a gamble in the spring but the nutritional and flavorful benefits make those crops worth the trouble. Thank you all for supporting us!

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.
