Here are a few ideas for cooking what's in this week's share: https://s3.amazonaws.com/sfc-dynamic-content/uploadfiles/3520/Recipe_Bank_-_CSA_Week_4_Summer_2017.pdf

We can't even begin to tell you how thrilled we are to be harvesting radishes and our first carrots this week! It's been a rough spring, and we are looking forward to a prosperous remainder of the season!

All it takes is some rain (in moderation), warmth, and some sunshine...that's not asking too much from Mother Nature, is it?!

Here you will find our recipe suggestions for this week: 

Week 3 Recipes

It is a slow start across the region, but know that variety and change is soon on its way! The crops are starting to pop and we are looking forward  to what is to come. 

We are busy at work cultivating the fields, staking and trellising tomatoes, and planting.

Many thanks to our CSA members who are already sharing recipe ideas and photos! This one comes from the Parker's who are awesome about sharing the food love:

"I had to pass along tonight's dinner - it was absolutely delicious

Stir-fry
Baby bok choy - rough chop
Small onions - diced
Leeks - diced
Portabella Mushrooms - chop bite size
3-4 Tbsp teriyaki
Stir fry onion, leek and mushrooms in oil of choice until tender
Add teriyaki and sauté until combines with veggies
Add bok choy and cook until wilted and tender and the sauce is at desired thickness
I served with sautéed shrimp but would taste delicious with chicken as well
Serve over brown rice or Asian noodle of choice

Another dynamite dinner featuring the amazing produce from Winni-woods! ❤️❤️"

And for those of you who have not yet used your turnips...this one is from the Brunt family:

"I am not a huge turnip fan,  but my husband is.  I roasted them,  sliced thin,  with Apple wedges, caraway seed, olive oil, fresh basil, s & p, and it was delicious! "

This week's recipes include Parmesan Polenta with Pesto and Caramelized Onions and Spaghetti with Green Garlic.

Here are the answers:

Daffodils  Tulips  Columbine

Yarrow  Delphinium  Foxglove

So how many did you get?!

Aaron was lucky enough to have the opportunity to be a part of this amazing undertaking. Nothing like a day full of teaching students about how STEAM connects to agriculture and letting kids get their hands dirty! Thank you to Karen, Joe, Belmont MS teachers and staff, and all of the community volunteers who came together to make this event possible!

We are now accepting pre-orders for our roasting chickens. This will be the only flock we are raising this year. The delivery will be earlier this season, than last year, and will happen during the week of the Labor Day Holiday.

Orders are taken on a first-come, first-served basis. Orders will only be taken until the deadline of April 24th. Roasters do sell out quickly, so order what you like as soon as possible. 

While the exact weights cannot be guaranteed, the average roaster is around 4-5 pounds. The anticipated cost for the 2017 flock is estimated to end up around $5.50/pound.

Contact Aaron at woodlandsfarmer@gmail.com or by phone at 855-2093 if you are interested in placing an order or have any further questions.

So, Aaron has gone through phases in how he feels about my newfound love for taking photographs of everything "farm". Some days he helps me set up the perfect shot, adjusting the angles, changing the lighting, and suggesting backdrops. While other days, he can be found exclaiming, "Do you need to take a picture of everything we eat?", even going so far as to threaten he is going to start taking pictures of his own daily creations and posting them on social media...

But the reality is that it is such an incredible pleasure to take photos of the things we love. The inherent beauty of a freshly picked bushel of spinach or two intertwined carrots that look like the "El Beso" statue in El Parque del Amor in Lima, Peru cannot be denied. 

I  hope you don't mind my small contributions of positive vibes in a world that doesn't always take the time to promote the joys in life.
