Week #2
Dear CSA Member,
We hope you have enjoyed the bounty of the first week’s shares.  It sure is nice to have something fresh after a long winter season.  The weather has been corporative these past couple weeks allowing us to get a lot of work done in the fields.  We have been planting more fall crops, putting away some row cover (that was laid over some crops to protect them from insect damage) to prepare to harvest this week’s shares.  We have also been working daily to keep the weeds down in the field using various cultivators, and the weeds we cannot get with the tractor will get done by hand.
In this week in your CSA shares, you will be getting sage.  The sage has beautiful purple flowers that are editable.  I have a few sage flower recipes below you can try.  This week is the last week for transplants.  This plant should be planted right away in a pot or directly outside in your garden.  The container we are sending the plant in is a decomposable pot and can be planted directly into the ground or larger pot.  The plant should have full sun and watered when needed. Enjoy!

This weeks recipes!  You can find more on our website!
Napa Cabbage: Great to make a quick Kimchi, Slaw, Stir Fry, Spring Rolls or even stuffed!
Arugula: Arugula is more of a spicy green.  It’s a great addition to a salad but, you can also add it to a pizza, wilt in a pot of pasta, make pesto, add to a sandwich instead of lettuce for a little more flavor or add to your favorite soup recipe.
Sage Flowers: Sage is the most flavorful just when the flowers open.  Enjoy the sage flowers in these unique recipes.
Mizuna: Mizuna is another great salad addition.  You can add Mizuna to your Risotto, Stir-Fry, Soups or a Grain Salad.  It has a nice peppery flavor.
