"If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny."

csa thirzday

the kimchee is maybe more on the side of medicine than food in the let your food be your medicine
thing. kimchee is great for stomach problems.  if you cook it is no longer raw enzymes but kimchee pancakes are incred.  i fed a bucket of it to chickens once and it was almost frightening to watch them devour it. tomorrow - all you can carry kale.  eat it, chip it.......barbs birthday today - celebrating that tomorrow with cherry pies.  a la mode?

csa thirz

first hugelkultur potatoes of the year tomorrow. these are early season potatoes - thin skinned, like rand paul. probably great roasted, confirmed great mashers, key to hashbrowns is to get the water out of them - easily done by slicing, salting and pressing with towel after they sweat.  i want to become a hugelkultur connosseiur where i can tell what type of wood they're grown in.  favorite so far is "old lumber".  these are elm and cottonwood.  kale and potato dish called colcannon is delish and irish.

csa is cole- slaw- anyone? get weird with it.  barb made a crazy one tonight with beets. the miso is a little different - its a short term - the japanese call it "ofdorko" used mainly in cooking and salad sressings.  legal restraints are prohibiting any pictures posted on this blog of the hugelkultur. someone bought the photographic rights to the whole month of june on all the beds out there. you can get pics by emailing EVirgilFalloon@sleepycreekseedco.com.

Hey kids. This week will be very similar to last week except with the addition of chard. Treat chard like any other green. (saute with garlic/onion). I have also posted a beet/chard fettuccine recipe for your consideration. Eggs will be light this week. We have no idea why. Usually we can blame it on their move to the egg-mobile but they are still in their old residence. Next week you can look forward to cabbage (regular not chinese like last week) so get your coleslaw recipes together!
In other news, Augo (our farm employee and photographer extraordinaire) is back from India. This means new photos on the blog next week.
See you soon!
