Greetings! Did you survive the rainy Easter weekend?? There is one thing that is a must for farming. That one very important thing is.... HOPE. We were reminded of that this Easter which happens to coincide with the celebration... HOPE. No matter what we all face and as farmers we see a lot of different circumstances as we all do.... hope...is at the center of our scope....hope...here is hoping for a lot of sunshine to dry out the fields, so we may get back to planting our spring crops! Hope for warmer weather to help our crops keep growing! :) Hoping that you awesome customers, we like to call friends, are enjoying eating healthier with our CSA!
This week your box of goodness will contain: Eggplant, Green Cabbage, and Red Leaf lettuce fresh from Florida, Mushrooms from Pa., Red Potatoes from Wa., Orange Cara Cara Navals and Lemons from Ca. Apples from Washington, Cucumbers from Harvest Moon and Greens from McClellan Organics.
I have enclosed a very useful link that I think you will find interesting. You may put in different zip codes or locations and it will tell you what crops are in season. This is helpful to keep you informed as to what you can expect to be in your boxes and where your food is grown. It's fun to follow the seasons with your food!
Creamy Mushroom-Potato Bake Recipe
The day I first made this, we'd invited a neighbor—a bachelor farmer—over, and I wanted to fix something hearty. It was a hit instantly. These days, our three sons enjoy it as a change from regular mashed potatoes. We've found that it's best served with beef...either with or without gravy. —Kathy Smith, Granger, Indiana
