CSA Pickup Reminder Thursday May 25th and Friday May 26th. Thanks for Returning Boxes!

Posted 5/23/2017 7:10pm by Jill Rendleman.

Ok, so last week I did not give credit to K-Noodles for the wonderful noodles made with organic ingredients just for All Seasons Farm.  Thats why the fresh parsley, which I also did not highlight,  was in the share......parsley and noodles and mozzarella equals a meal.  Thats because local farm in soil grown parsley has a wonderful taste and is very nutritious......we often have noodles with an herb and cheese as a simple but highly nutritious meal.   Really you don't need any side dishes......it's all there.  

So this week, tonight, which may change tomorrow based on the weather, we are looking at Sweet Red Kale, Spinach, Chard, early spring Garlic or Garlic scapes, and some form of lettuce plus one or two other items coming on.  If you just hate or are allergic to any of those items, let me know.  We can substitute beets, herbs, cabbage, or something else you like.  Just call or text me 618-308-0217.  I just love when spring garlic comes in, whether it is in stir fry or salads, fresh spring garlic or garlic scapes are something very special, not often found at markets, never found in groceries.  So if you haven't used those noodles, keep them in reserve...garlic in some form not readily available is coming soon from your farmer Jill.  

Looks like we will have zucchini soon as well as cucumbers and cherry tomatoes. Peppers of all sorts have been planted but don't seem to be enjoying all this moisture and gray days.   We are moving into the "warm season" crops.  Today we planted eggplants and various green as well as mild to hot peppers.  Next week, we will be planting sweet corn and green beans. The tomato crop has some issues, but there are cherry tomatoes ripening and maybe next week we can enjoy them.    If there is something you would like to see in the CSA, please let me know.....call or text 618-308-0217.  We can grow almost anything if there is enough members who want it!  

There were raves about the Pippino mushroom shares last week (16 week only), however all mushrooms shares will enjoy Lions Mane Mushrooms this week.  Talk about a gourmet experience, these shrooms are so delicious with an almost Seafood taste and texture, let me ask Mike for recipes.........or go for it.
