NEWS FROM THE FARM
It's been another busy week of transplanting, seeding, harvesting and irrigating! We seeded the second set of green beans on Sunday. You can expect to see them in your shares some time this month.
NOTES ON THE SHARE
How can you not love this week's harvest? I'm so excited to get into the kitchen after I finish up this newsletter and start cooking! I'll be making the salads I put in the Recipe section of the newsletter. The escarole and fennel salad is a little bit time consuming, but oh so worth it! If you're in a pinch for time, save the white parts of the escarole for salad (dressed in a simple vinaigrette with olive oil, red wine vinegar, good quality mustard and crushed garlic), and cook up the green parts in a simple saute. The recipe for escarole & pine nuts is a good one. You can find dozens of other recipes for this week's bounty on our website. Bon appetit!
