csa 5

another big bag of spinach. leaves are really big. eat raw or mix it up by steaming it with a few hard boiled eggs and soy sauce. classic japanese dish. first of the romaines. these are almost full grown. next few weeks lots of romaine lettuce. eggs maybe some radishes some asparagus. big winds this week. tomato damage was luckily minimal. i planted 250 this weekend and am still so worn out i will probably be at csa tomorrow. see you then.

csa week 3

hey everybody
hootenannies are best in pouring rain according to jeff kohout. looks like clear skies friday but i hope everyone comes out anyway to see the gardens, listen to some live music and have a burger or two. bring a side dish - or not. plenty of food and beer for everyone.
if anyone wants to grow one of the "heavenly tomato plant that eats garbage" (scroll for link) i have a few left. (2500 cherry tomatoes guaranteed - up to 5000)
tomorrow - great radishes. spinach and greens, eggs, asparagus is starting to take off but not sure we are going to have enough tomorrow - next week for sure. Things are slow this spring with these nighttime temps. see you friday!

csa 2

wild mustard greens tomorrow mixed with some overwintered thin skinned spinach. parboil or steam. least palatable most nutritious csa of the year probably. if you lightly boil the mustard greens in a frying pan over rice with soy sauce and you dont like the taste this would be a perfect time to start your compost pile. first radishes. eggs. probably pork products.
