Le Menu (what's cookin'?)

NEWS FROM THE FARM AND RECIPES
The radishes are fruiting and the first wildflowers are ready!  The tomatoes are just beginning to flower and we have hopes that the year, off to a slow start, is finally getting underway!  This week also we have some interesting white oyster mushrooms to try, and delicious bean greens!  Garlic scapes are always a good idea, as are onion flowers and mustard.  Give them a try on your sandwhiches, mixed in with your mac and cheese (veggies and mac and cheese are actually quite good together!) or on your pizza!
We are beginning to plant the autumn crops!  Let us know the kinds of things you'd like and we'll plant them!

 > Sprouts - our own special method makes these tastier and more nutritious!
> Meat shares - from the Rev. Ronald Taylor's ranch.  These meats are from a neighbor of ours, he uses no hormones, and both grains and pastures the cows on natural feeds.  He raises holsteins.  In the hard economic times, he is adjusting his prices to allow microshares.  If there is more beef than expected, you can either pay the difference or return to him what you did not pay for!
