What to Do With Your Share---Week 2

As a farmer you have the type of nightmares that revolve around waking up in the morning and finding all of your crops dead. While we certainly did not have that, we woke up to some scary stuff on the 16th and the 17th. As Rebecca filled you in, we are sticking to our game plan and moving forward.

The shares this week are literally heavy with lettuce. We have honed in on some spectacular varieties over the years, and we savor their appearance in the shares. Enjoy this peak season.

Our favorite thing is to make a good dressing, assemble some veggie, carb and protein items, and mix them all together. The salad below of beets and lettuce is topped with Goatsbeard cheese and roasted pumpkin seeds.

Tonight we took advantage  of one of our other partner vendors, Parker Farms for a filling salad. To make the meatballs mix one egg and 2 tbsp. of ground herbs (a mix of mint, rosemary, thyme, fennel seed, oregano, or other savory herbs). Fry them in 2 tbsp. olive oil and drain on paper.

Fill your salad bowl with rice and lettuce. Top with the meatballs, broiled asparagus, pumpkin seeds, and the dressing of your choice. Tough to beat.

All in all it has been a crazy few days. Here are a few more scenes.
