Week two... small but tasty.

[2016 CSA Week 2]

Hope you all enjoyed your first pick up. We were thrilled to meet new faces and catch up with past members. This week will be a smaller share for you. We are in between our winter/early spring plantings and the summer rounds of goods are not ready to be picked. There is a lot underway for your share this year though, so please be patient.

We have been busy at the farm this week getting loads of plants in the ground. Kale and chard, peppers, cauliflower, lettuce, leeks and more. I seeded another round of carrots (our forth seeding so far), beets, peas, beans and salad greens.The cucumbers and tomatoes have been trellised in the high and low tunnels and they are looking great. 

New this week is Pac Choi. An Asian green that is used in stir fries, soups and Asian salads. The entire part of the plant can be used, minus the stubby part at the bottom. I personally love the crunchy and juicy stems to this plant. It is great sauteed with a ginger and sesame sauce or I like to add it into my go to peanut noodle salad. 

This week's share...

  • Lettuce
  • A choice of a green (i.e. salad mix, chard, kale)
  • Pac Choi 
  • Herbs

Garlic scapes and green beans will be coming shortly!
