Welcome back to the LocalHarvest newsletter.
This is the time. Hundreds of thousands of people all over the country are signing up for a CSA. Visions of tender new potatoes, taut, warm melons, and tomatoes, always tomatoes dance in their heads. Many – most – will end the season deliciously satisfied. Some, though, will not be pleased with their CSA experience. This month's newsletter is devoted to maximizing your chances of finding yourself among the sated and contented.
As always, take good care and eat well.

Food from the Farm: Roasted Garlic and Parsnip Soup
I consider parsnips to be one of the vegetable world's best kept secrets, but
have never tried them in a soup. I was so happy to receive this recipe from the
folks at the
Cascade Bar and Grill.
It's a simple but flavorful
soup, one that I know my family is going to go back to again and again. When my
sister tasted it she said, "Mmmm… February food." Exactly.
