Hi Kids-Barb here.  Ross is still out at the farm where he has started Day 3 of not smoking and at least that of not bathing.  I hope that doesn't become Pavlovian to him.  For the first time in the history of our CSA, I can tell you that you get your choice between cucumbers and squash today.  The Mayans may have been on to something.  Green Beans, tomatoes and peppers as well.
See you soon.

might cut some more purslane tomorrow.  barb thinks no one ate it. if you didnt this is your second chance. this stuff is from the garden. has been watered - choice.  i see a purslane fried pepper olive oil garlic thing over pasta.  purslane and hemp are the only two plants that havent been affected too badly by the drought. you definitely want to eat purslane.  i found the best way to eat raw kale is with a very intense dressing like a whole lemon....my friend greg has done the nettle tea regiment - one cup 20 minutes before breakfast for thirty days. said it has cured his painful joints and arthritis. i read about a guy that turned his whole farm into a nettle farm.
T minus 11 days for largest hugelkultur project in the country.

CSA Thurs 8/6/12

my friend bill came through town last week and his kids are pictured above... anyway his wife is a raw foodie and so are the kids.
the kids ate all the chard raw for breakfast. they recommended to eat chard raw just wrap it up in rice or glass noodles....... as a tortilla.....hopefully with hot sauce.
we tried it and it was great. couldnt even taste the chard really. if you love the taste of chard then you could chop up chard and stuff chard leaves with chard. raw
greens build blood according to chinese medicine. if your tongue is whitish you need to eat raw greens. big rains coming tonight!!!!!!!!

csa purslane week!!!

we are going to harvest the purslane and truck it in tomorrow. it is the closest thing to seafood in the plant world. is it a weed?..... yes. you probably have some growing in your yard and if you try it you wont have it in your yard for long. a french cultivar. recipes at right or just saute with garlique. 
also mabel put up a beaut over there on cooking eggs.  lots of tomatoes tomorrow many of them super ripe. sauce them or eat them before they collapse. the second generation layers have just started laying their first eggs so eggs should be great for the second half of csa. these chickens are GMO free. i have decided though i am going to use chemicals on zucchini stems from now on. from the first round of zuke plants we are down to 4 (non producing) out of 40 - all vine bored - next round look fair. going to plant round 3 tomorrow - there will be zukes!!!!! THE greatest food of all time.
