CSA Harvest and Beet Video

Here is the harvest list for your CSA's this week.

Herbal tea package

This week in your herbal tea package
Lemon Balm
Anise Hyssop
Penny Royal
Chrysanthium Flowers
Wild Gooseberries

You can use last week's recipe for the herbal tea, As for the Wild gooseberries you can bruise them a little and add them to the hot water.

I made a cooking video for "how to cook beets" You can add a multitude of different things to your marinated beets. Cooked diced potatoes (Boiled), Sliced cucumbers (without seeds, slice lenghtwise and scoop out with a spoon), Parsley, Basil, thinly sliced onions... All which have been included in your CSA and herb guild.

Whats new on the farm??

Stu and I are glad that Kenny and Nanam are back from their honeymoon. The whole team is back together on the farm and the addition of our two new interns from Heartland Community College. John and Emma have been kicking major butt on the farm. We got a our first seeder in the mail this week and hooked it up. This thing is the best new tool on the farm other than Henry Brockman's Asian Weeders. I can now seed a bed in about 5 minutes when it would have taken me about 2 hours by hand. Now that the rain has been holding off, we have tilled up new ground and seeded everything for a plethora of winter vegetables.

Hope you enjoy the video, I made it in a new style this week. Let us know what you think of it.

  1. I loved the video. I planted a 6 foot row of beet seeds in the spring and have been picking them as needed. A deer just just ate off the tops remaining ones, so I will have a lot now! Thanks for the ideas of what to combine them with. I usually slice them, place them next to a bed of baby spinach with a smattering of walnuts and a drizzle of ranch dressing! Try the walnuts with them - mmmm....looking forward to your restaurant!
