CSA WEEK 1!

Welcome to Week 1 of CSA! We are glad to be starting deliveries, and only a week later than last year, which is pretty good considering the late spring we've had. We have had a lot of help this spring and we've managed to whip the garden into pretty good shape. There are other things that loom over our heads though, consuming time and thought and worry and energy. There is a baby coming in July, there are consulting opportunities developing for Joel, there is a future and potential final settling place for Abraham's Table Farm. It gets overwhelming very quickly. But for now, lets focus on how green everything is! We are always surprised at how many different shades of green exist around us, even in one species of plant! This is the season that green leafy vegetables love, and they thrive and sweeten with the cool nights. You're getting a lot of greens in your share this week, and we have some good ideas for how to use them up!

Yesterday, inspired by the vibrancy of the spinach in the garden, I made spinach pasta. After it had dried, I cooked it and threw it in a frying pan with some asparagus, chives, garlic, and butter. A sprinkle of sunflower seeds on top added crunch. We all loved this and it was fun and beautiful to eat! What are some ways you're using the greens?


Spinach

Salad Mix

Head Lettuce

Kale

Broccoli Raab-an Italian green we always grow, read about it here

Arugula

Rhubarb

Oregano

Chives

Flowers

Eggs


This is a basic recipe for a frittata, which we eat a lot of. The possibilities are endless! Riff around with the herbs, greens, and cheese and you get something different and delicious every time!


My favorite salad dressing(for all the lettuce!):

Serves 2

2 TB balsamic vinegar

6 TB good olive oil

Splash of soy sauce, to taste

TB of mustard, any kind

1 large clove garlic

Blend all with an immersion blender, taste and correct seasonings, then store in fridge.


There are many ways to eat rhubarb, and they're all good!


Enjoy the share!

Hmmm...how did I use the greens? Spinach went into a quiche with some of the eggs. The broccoli raab was new to me, so just did the basic blanche and saute in coconut oil method. Awesome stuff! Salad mix went into chef salad with some more of the eggs and some store-bought veggies. Cooked the rhubarb with some strawberries and used for sauce on ice cream, and then took the rest and mixed with home-made mayo to make a dressing for the chef salad. Kale was made into kale chips in the oven, except the spine, which I pureed and put into a smoothie with bananas, pineapple, raw pumpkin seeds, and sterilized egg shells. Head lettuce going int…
