Hi, all CSA members wondering if I forgot the blog. No, I didn't exactly forget so much as I've been doing 10 different things at once for the past week. Of course I sometimes love it like that- if there's one thing I don't have to worry about, it's boredome.
On to your week's vegHetables; by now you've probably figured out that there are two bags of spinach, two bags of lettuce. and one bag of arugula. Here on the farm we've been eating salad at two to three meals a day, and Max ate half a bag himseslf for dinner last night. Enjoy it while you can! We try to keep some salad fixings going for you through the entire season, but during the winter I can barely eat the stuff from the store since I'm so spoiled by freshly picked greens.
Another reminder to wash and dry everything well in addition to any washing we may have done. There's nothing worse than sandy salads!
If you are ever in Littleton at one of those big box stores (we all go sometimes), try visiting the farmers' market for a relaxing change of scenery. On Sunday from 10:00 to 1:00 I'm at the market by the river downtown. It's one of my favorites because of the great location and there are all kinds of interesting things to see.
If you don't already know about the Lyndonville farmers' market I'm there as well on Friday for 3:00 to 7:00. In Lyndonville I usually sell lots of breads, cookies, and other baked goods and in Littleton I sell our vegetables, syrup and eggs. I did really well at the markets this past week, and am hoping it continues for the rest of the season!
