csa Th

tomorrow is a good csa. notice how i didnt say great. maybe the most nutritious though. the key to the pesto is cooking the pasta right. if the bag says 10 minutes that means around 7 take it out and let it finish on the counter with a little olive oil. you can cool it down by stirring in pesto and shredded parm. this one has all the best tasting plants (nettles wood sorrel cleavers and chickweed - links to the right) on the farm. should be a "wow" type moment if you dont blow the pasta.  aquaponics open house next friday afternoon.  come out and meet the tilapia. no gifts. would have been this friday but hallz n oat are at the zoo. keeling is now the bass player-worth a look.

 im not sure exactly what will be in the box tomorrow - a little muddy to dig the artchokes, (jerusalem). lets see what happens. heard there might be music.  aquaponics system is almost up and running and that will almost certainly be a party, at least an FAC.   mabel is probably gonna be there tomorrow she doesnt really like the mud. so she would want to remind teddy butch woo and mack to come over if theyre not too busy.

nettle pesto. mix into warm pasta add parmesan cheese - pretty tasty.  eggs might be light - we will be great on eggs in the near future as a flock of astralorps gears up for egg season. okay lets get down to business: i like creator the 3 horse to hit the board. my long shot as of 5 39 wednesday is majesto the 18. that is subject to change  - good luck to all the horsemen and women out there. see you tomorrow if i am not on scramble. rain coming - first quarter planting on the full moon friday.
