CSA 6.23.11

Hi Guys-
Chinese cabbage, beets, cilantro, kale and broccoli tomorrow. Kale and cilantro
are great for chelation...which you will hear a lot about in our newsletter tomorrow. I am sorry to say that we won't have eggs. Next week, we should be back on track with them. Ross is busy setting snare traps tonight but sends his love.
Thanks to Augo for the great blog photos.

had to thin some of the beets. beets are related to chard. leaves of young beets indistinguishable from chard. you can see for yourself - chard also. i like them sauteed in olive oil, garlic......then lemon. good over pasta. everyone is probably wandering where the peas are. planted them three times. the third time they came up sparsely. not sure if it was the seeds or the dirt. anyway ill try to get peas in for the fall. chelation csa a week away. heard theres some kind of nuke accident in nebraska somewhere. just got in from the sticks for three days and need to catch up on the disasters.

Hey kids-
Lots of lettuce and broccoli today. We had to cut some of the broc before it flowered
and it didn't store optimally. It will be delicious cooked but did not hold the crunch
of raw so I will also cut you some fresh from the yard when you get here. Lettuce is red and butter crunch. With the storms this morning it is a bit dirtier than normal...so
take extra care in washing it. Loose leaf cannot be vigorously washed or it will disintegrate. Kale and mustard greens also. Fox hunt is ongoing. I saw one today running with the goat herd. They probably think its our dog Chicken...I did at first.
See you soon.

csa thurs

when the foxes hit the trailer last week i moved it along the road where lloyd and the llamas hang out and they have been doing great until yesterday. now importing eggs and implementing zero tolerance for fox kills until next round of layers start laying (a month). hitting the foxes with a full court press mixture of legal and illegal extermination methods. one down one wounded. found their headquarters - there was chicken bones and baby goat hooves strewn all around. augo said he found some beer cans.
