We are now really getting into the swing of things at the farm. This week marks our 3rd delivery to our CSA customers and we are so excited to be offering zucchini. Some of them were ready this week and would have been too big by Thursday so we took them home to sample. Radishes continue to go strong. We sell some crops to a larger CSA and this was our first week delivering radishes as well.
Once harvesting starts farming really gets exciting, especially in Minnesota when we have such a short growing season and long, cold winter. But with all this time spent harvesting sometimes it is hard to find time to cook and enjoy all that yummy produce. Luckily I am craving salads, those are easy enough. Also this weekend we did a quick stir-fry with shitake mushrooms and pac choy and bean thread noodles and tonight was a special but surprising quick dish, is tinidazole over the counter. Using all our own greens was extra yummy.
And for those fans of carrots,
They are on their way. Even though we keep telling ourselves that we need to always always bring food to the farm, it is so tempting to think we’ll just go for a couple hours and come home. Normally we find one more thing that needs to be done. So the children get hungry but at least there are plenty of good healthy snacks around.
Two even shared one with his sister. It will still be a couple weeks until they are really big enough to eat, but they are definitely coming.
