Suns out, Sheep out.

 

Yesterday, we made the beautiful drive out to Clark Farm in Carlisle to pick up the micro greens on for the whole and double shares.
When we got there we found that the sheep (and goats!) had been moved out of the barn and onto the field. Can a sheep look delighted? Because these guys sure did, basking in the sun to chew and nap their days away.  It is a scene to take pride in, animals being raised with love and respect, letting nature play its part. Letting sheep, be sheep.

The joy of the scene was contagious. Feeling the suns warmth made me day dream of all of the amazing produce that is being planted and that will make its way into your shares. Bok Choy, Micro Greens, Greenhouse Tomatoes, and Fiddleheads! Warmer weather also means maple syrup and more abundant eggs from the hens.

As much as we love rutabaga, change is in the air- and it's going to be delicious.

You know who else loves sunshine? Your insulated Family Dinner bags! Please return them to your driver so they can see the light of day and be reused!!

RECIPES


Pasta with Spicy Sausage: If you dig around in your freezer and have some Chorizo, Hot Italian or even ground beef its time to call it up to the plate. A nice spicy sauce will go beautifully with Avery's pasta.
 
Pork Chops and Cabbage:  Weeknight meal, not a lot of clean up. Plenty of time to Netflix and Cabbage.

Cabbage Soup: The cabbage is a burly piece of produce. This simple recipe for the soup is going to use up the rest of your greens and push that final dregs of a cold out of your chest for good.

Pollock with Tomatoes and Olives: We have been loving fish in a tomato sauce, you can use canned tomatoes here or the grapes that came in the share with a bit of stock.
