First Spring Salad Share
This Friday marks the first pickup at Field To Fork and we are so excited to start connecting with our CSA members again! If you have joined the CSA for the spring share please dont forget to come grab your fresh spring greens. We are very happy with the crops that will be available to you over the next four weeks and we hope you will feel satisfied as well. The Author Barbara Kingsolver in her book Animal Vegetable Miracle writes about the cycle of farm life and gardening. She has really nailed how the first leaves of the garden are by far the most anticipated and warm feeling food. There are times we overlook the spring crops since we are lucky enough to live in a culture that can have any food at our finger tips at anytime. Through out the next few weeks you will nibble, dine and devour some of the best salad greens and spinach of the year and will then be paired with sweet baby root vegetables, sweet peas, snow peas, strawberries and some fancy herbs and spring onions. One of my favorite crops we offer with the spring salad share are the beautiful Peonies and Irises that the farm has been growing for over a decade. We also have garden plants available for your home gardens.
We are very excited to see you this week and please set a reminder to pick up your spring share. We do a market style pickup to save on boxes so please bring your reusuable bags to get your food home. We will provide paper bags if you forget.
“Once you start cooking, one thing leads to another. A new recipe is as exciting as a blind date. A new ingredient, heaven help me, is an intoxicating affair.”
