Amazing Spring!

Posted on May 1st, 2024 by Farm Manager

We hope you enjoyed your first CSA box! It is such a joy to be back into the swing of harvesting and packing shares. Did you celebrate tried-and-true recipes with vegetables you know and love? Or did you explore something new to kick off the season? However you choose to enjoy your share this season, we have a whole variety of recipes and culinary tips on our website that are sorted by vegetable to bring some ease to your weekly meal planning. 

The last week of April was grey and drizzly, but we're hopeful that the old adage about early showers will ring true for May flowers. And spring greens, too! It's that time of year when leafy greens are tender and abundant, which we revel in by making big, lush green salads with micro greens, chickpeas and radishes, and simple frittatas with fresh herbs. After a long winter of eating heavy comfort foods, it feels so good to have fresh greens on the table again.

Speaking of fresh herbs - these aromatic beauties are also abundant this time of year! Have you tried chopping tangy lemon sorrel right into your salad or adding spicy chives to vinaigrettes? All of our herbs bring vibrant new flavors, and it's a great way to use up those bunches (stems and all!) before your next box is delivered!
