This Week’s Harvest
Potted Basil Plant
Berry Share: Strawberries from Monnin’s Fruit Farm in Dayton, OH
We are thrilled to start our 9th CSA season today! We’ve been working towards this day since February on tasks ranging from seeding to planting to weeding and a whole host of other tasks that are necessary to successfully manage a 30 acre organic farm! We already have about 4.5 acres of vegetables planted and another 4 acres seeded to a cover crop of oats and field peas. Planning for vegetables for 24 weeks means that we are in constant “go mode” from March until November. Our greenhouse is always restocked with weekly seeding, Ben is always out on the tractor prepping more beds, and we try our very best to keep up with all the weeding! We’ve had more than a few late night dinners the past 2 weeks! The farm is teeming with life and we are very happy to see (and taste) the results of our hard work. We hope you enjoy the delicious food as much as we do!
Stir Fry Bok Choy (use 7 garlic scapes in place of garlic. I like to chop the scapes in 1/2 inch chunks)
Radishes with Herbed Butter (just dill will do for the herb if you don’t have parsley on hand. Substitute 2 minced garlic scapes for the scallions)
