I hope you enjoyed your first week of produce! We have another bountiful basket loaded with more of our spring crops for you this week. Radishes are coming in and (drumroll....) strawberries! We are still in the very beginning of our strawberry season but we wanted to make sure we could share them with you for the first week we have them. I find nothing can compare to a fresh picked strawberry and they are one of the crops that out of season are pale imitations of what it could be. Cherish the flavors, the strawberry season flies by and will be gone before you know it!
In your share today you have garlic scapes, another emblematic crop of the spring season. Garlic scapes are the flower stem of the Garlic that we pull in the spring to encourage our garlic to bulb up. They are also absolutely delicious! My two favorite ways to have them is sautéed with butter or in my scrambled eggs. Let us know what you think? Have you had garlic scapes before? What is your favorite way to serve them.
The farm has been alive with activity. New field crew members are taking care of all the crops out in the field and finishing out some of our large crop plantings. This time of year always feels filled with potential for me. The potential crops from the seedlings going into the ground, the hints of summer with these warm spring days and the sun staying out and bright through the evening. It's hard to think about the fall when it is dark before CSA pickup is over.
Thank you for joining us on this journey through our growing season, there is so much to look forward to and so much to cherish right now. I am excited to be on this journey with you. If you have any questions about produce or the CSA do not hesitate to reach out. We will see you at CSA pickup!

Note: CSA contents may vary slightly bag to bag depending on availability and consistency of the crop. We are not able to customize bags for specific customers.
Have you eaten your Tatsoi from last week's share yet? If you still have it in your fridge here's a great idea for how to use it that I found from the online blog, Kalyns Kitchen. I've included the recipe for Tatsoi in the recipe page.
If you have a strawberry or another CSA produce recipe you enjoy - please share it in the shared album! Post a photo of what you've done with your CSA and include the recipe in the caption. I can't wait to see all that you create with the share

You are allowed to skip up to 2 weeks (provided minimum 1 week forewarning) that can be added at the end of the share.
