2nd CSA bunch


We got our second CSA box today. Looks like we’ll be eating a lot of salads this coming week. ๐Ÿ™‚

The box included spinach, arugula, lettuces, garlic and parsley.

Sara with Groundswell Farm shared a recipe for this week too:

This is an Argentinian dip/sauce/spread that’s a lot like pesto. — Sara Fennell

Olive oil
Lemon juice (optional)
Pepper (optional)

Mix all ingredients in a food processor until smooth. If you like a strong garlic flavor use a couple of cloves (or green garlic). Serve at room temperature.
Sara also told the CSA subscribers about Weathertop Farm in Floyd. The farm sells pastured chickens, turkeys, pigs, rabbits and eggs. The farm’s website says it doesn’t use antibiotics or hormones and the pasture is pesticide-, herbicide- and synthetic fertilizer-free.

I’m talking with Chris about buying chickens from them now. I’m glad there’s a source for hormone free chickens in the area. I’ve been able to find hormone-free beef and pork at the farmer’s market and Yoder’s Farm Market (my favorite!).

  1. I love the salad comment. The beginning of the CSA season is always a little more green than a lot of people expect. I usually hear back, “so what am I supposed to do with all the lettuce?” Ahh seasonal eating… I hope you have a wonderful CSA experience!

  2. Thanks, Minnesota CSA! So far I'm enjoying it. I'm gonna have to get creative and find some new dressings (I've been making them all from scratch) to keep the hubby from getting bored. ๐Ÿ™‚
