CSA Week 2
The end of last week, into the weekend, was very busy. So busy, that I didn’t get a chance to put together a blog post for our CSA folks. Oops! Turkey poults arrived Thursday and we were prepping for Grafton’s Summerfest Parade through Friday night.
I think we got a great float together for the Grafton Farmer’s Market! Farm to Table was our theme. Since we have lots of baked goods at the market, it seemed like a good idea to share doughnut holes and chocolate chip cookies from some of our vendors. That was a hit! Laura, one of the FM board members even dressed as a carrot, and yes, those are real plants on our float! Thanks to Bless My Bloomers, True North Equipment, Bob Meyer, Jeannette Shambaugh, Kathy Gudajtes and Kim Koehn for helping to make our float awesome.
The rest of the weekend was spent taking in the festivities around town. Now it’s back to business, and you’re wondering what was in the CSA box last week!
We had a jar of bruschetta from last year’s tomato crop and a baguette to go with it. I love this baguette recipe, they even have a video if you are new to making bread by hand. Mint made an appearance, I would recommend this yummy Iced Green Tea Mojito or try a traditional mojito or a mint julep. A spring CSA share wouldn’t be complete without greens, most members got a lettuce mix with just a few getting spinach.
The peas have pods and LOTS of flowers, green beans are flowering, we picked our first summer squash and there are even some tiny little tomatoes in the garden! Think dry thoughts and we should have a great season.
