CSA - Week 6
What's in your share this week? - taprootfarms.ca/shares
Josh posted this picture. This is the pigs coming out of the bush to get their morning meal.
We have pea shoots and a few bags of arugula available on add on's. To get some with your share login to your TapRoot account and they are under vegetables.
Josh is cleaning up the squash wear house this week, getting part of it turned into the seeding area. The first to be seeded in trays will be celeriac, fennel and cortland onions (a fresh and storage onion).
The Hubbards squash is peel on. You can either cook with the peel on, or cut it off before cooking. Just note that the hubbards peel is super hard, so be careful!
Our coworkers who come from Jamaica are getting their medicals done today. There are 14 men who come each year, and many of them have been here working at the farm with us since we started. They have so much knowledge about the farm and are an essential part to our success.
Sunday we had some beautiful weather and Famer Josh said he got quite excited, thinking about the season to come. Once we start to get more warm days the over wintered greens in the greenhouse will start to grow. We have spinach and mixed greens that we planted in the fall with a plan to harvest them this spring.
Seeds are arriving!!! A true sign that spring is right around the corner. 😀
Share recipe inspiration:
Radish and Peas - Kim says she cooks this a lot less than it says to, and adds the radish at the end so it's just warm, but still crunchy.
A member shared her super easy and delicious cabbage recipe - Thanks!
Thanks you so much to those who are helping to inspire us in what to cook for supper :)
The tunnels need to have the snow shoveled away from the bottom so the snow that sticks and then falls off the top has somewhere to go.
Otherwise the snow load would bend or break the metal.
Have a great week!
Justine and the whole TapRoot Team
