We’ve got some important information you need to read if you’ve got a Spring CSA Share:
Pick Up is EVERY Week! I know we do every other week in the fall, but in spring, the greens are fresh and growing fast so we need to cut them every week. In the fall we have a lot more storage produce which keeps much longer, making the every other week pick up more effective.
Put these dates in your calendar and you won’t miss a pick up:
Tuesday Pick Up: May 15th, May 22, May 29, June 5
Thursday Pick Up: May 17th, May 24, May 31, June 7th
Tasting Tour this week: Tour leaves from the farm stand promptly at 4:45pm Tuesday and Thursday
We are going to do our first Tasting Tours this week. Tasting Tours are really just a short 45-60 minute gentle walking tour of the farm where we get to taste a few things here and there. Your farmers will talk about what’s going on in the fields and help you get to know your food a little better. It’s a lot of fun. No need to RSVP. Read more here.
Seedlings are for sale during CSA pick up hours this week and next. We’ve got awesome seedling this year! Feel free to peruse and purchase during CSA Hours.
CSA Spotlight: What did you do with your share last week?
This is a great way for members to share what they did with their share on a given week to give other members and potential members ideas of what to do with a CSA share. Thanks to our friend and CSA member, Carrie Marsh for the idea and for being first! Want to be in the spotlight? Send me an email and we’ll get you signed up: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Week’s Share:
Micro Cilantro (in a pack like micro basil)
Rosa di Milano Heirloom Onions
Choice: Baby Boy Choy, Baby Kale, Pea Tendrils, Micro-Greens
What to do with the share:
TACOS. This share definitely screams tacos. Toppings: Finely chopped radishes and scallions, cilantro, lettuce/arugula/spinach and your choice of cheese, beef, chicken, beans . . . . you name it!
Salads are also a mainstay of the spring share. Think about stocking up on your favorite salad dressings for the next month, or maybe make your own.
Mizuna Salad With Miso Dressing. Mizuna is a very tender green and can either been enjoyed raw in a salad or very gently braised/tossed in at the end of a stir fry. It has a fresh, sweet flavor. Taste a leaf!
