Welcome to the 2020 Season! We’ll start with some details you’ll need to know!
Please remember to practice safe social distancing when you pick up your share. Masks are recommended, and we will have hand sanitizer available at each pick-up location. We will provide clean pens to check your name off, but feel free to bring your own if you prefer. Also please take all of the veggies in your box with you this year, and if you are sharing with someone make arrangements to do that outside of the pick-up site.
A reminder for Half-Share folks! Those of you receiving the 10 week share will pick-up this week, and those of you receiving the 12 week share will begin next week. Receiving this blog doesn’t necessarily mean this is your week to pick up!
Please refer to your delivery info, and if you have any questions give us a call at the farm at 541-935-1920 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are excited to kick off the season and are thankful to each of you for being members. We welcome those of you who have supported us for many years, and welcome all of you who are new to our “farm family”. We are heartened that so many people care about the source of their food and the intention put into it. Our crew is keeping busy, the markets are in full swing, and the energy at the farm is buzzing.
We have quite a few new crew members and we look forward to sharing their stories with you all through out the year. Getting to know these amazing young farmers is exciting and inspiring. Shannon has done an exemplary job in the greenhouse, and all of the plants are healthy and strong.
I will be passing the “BLOG” torch on to Bronwynn for the season, and want you all to know how much I’ve enjoyed sharing “our farm” with you all through the years. I’ll probably fill in now and again through out the season.
WHAT’S IN YOUR SHARE THIS WEEK
- Lacinato Kale
- Red Leaf lettuce
- Oak Leaf lettuce
SOME SITES ONLY
For those of you who are new to our CSA, we don’t always end up harvesting veggies in equal amounts. If your site didn’t get peas this week, you will get them next week. Our office gnomes are keeping track, don’t worry!
WHAT WE’RE MAKING
Bronwynn’s favorite use of turnips, or as they are called in the British Isles, “neeps” Disregard the Haggis part, unless you really want to try it! (Not for the faint of heart)
Good tacos call for pickled radishes, here’s a quick and easy version. Leave the jalapeño out if you don’t like super spicy.
Strawberry sorbet is a perfect summery desert, no need for an ice cream maker.
Looking for a fresh twist on kale? Try this!
Need a delicious take on breakfast?
We have some other tools available for recipes using farm fresh veggies. The following sites offer great tips, and we do have our own pdf veggie handling guide booklet, email us if you would like us to send you that.
This is a great cookbook if you prefer a more hands-on option.
Looking forward to a great season!
Linda, Bronwynn and your Winter Green farmers
