CSA - Week 7
What's in your share this week? - taprootfarms.ca/shares
You might start thinking that all I eat is cabbage. Well, this time of year I do eat it everyday. It is delicious and simple and nutritious so tonight for me is sautéed leek and cabbage and a few pieces of steak. Join in...eat cabbage everyday:)) - Patricia
Seeding has begun! Tim is working on number eight of fifty trays of celeriac. We are waiting for more soil to come. Once is does and thaws out we will start seeding tomatoes.
If you are making payments on your account (monthly, or otherwise) you will receive a statement at the beginning of each month. The purpose of this statement is to keep you up to date on what is happening with your account. Statements only show activity on your account for the previous month (ie the statement I send out this week will show activity that took place between February 1st and February 28th) so if you make a payment on March 1st it will not show up on your statement this week. This statement should correspond with your online TapRoot Farms account. If you notice any discrepancies or have any questions about your account statement, please let Falicia know by emailing email@example.com.
Thank you to the few who have written to me about the boxes letting go on them. We do reuse boxes, but do look out for ones that are looking to worn to make another trip. With the heavy items we have in the CSA lately (cabbage and celeriac), they do bulge in the bottom, and are prone to let go. The best bet is to hold your box from the bottom rather than the handles. Thanks!
To keep the boxes in top shape, it may be helpful for some of you to learn how to properly unfold your box. Check out Geoff showing us how HERE.
We are happy to share our 3 liter Northern Spy Apple Cider. Available via Add-on's with your CSA or soon at Noggins Locations.

Share recipe inspiration:
Sometimes even the simplest recipes can help us get supper on the table.
This Roasted Celeriac and Carrots is dead easy, but provides a little inspiration to you.
Potatoes and leeks are a perfect combo. Try this Leek and Potato Gratin and see why!
A full Monty Member sent us a recipe she tried. She said she used parsnips in place of the potatoes. Looks delicious!
Indian-Spiced Tomato and Egg Casserole:
Tim in the seeding room, starting the 10,000 celeriac seeds that he's going to plant in the next few weeks.
Have a great week!
