some green garlic, minced

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons sunflower seeds, toasted

 

Toss greens, garlic and oil in large sauce pan or skillet.  Cover and saute until greens are just wilted.  Add a splash of water if necessary to prevent greens from sticking to the pan.  Toast sunflower seeds in dry skillet or hot oven for several minutes, tossing often and stir into greens.


 

WhatŐs Going On?

Hello folks!  I wanted to first let you all know that the farm will be featured at the Lantern Restaurant this Sunday night.  The Lantern, which is usually closed on Sundays, opens to feature a specific farm every now and again.  There is a set menu with all the vegetables coming from the farm.  Check out the Lantern website at www.lanternrestaurant.com to learn more about the dinner and to see some pictures that are posted there of my farm.  If you are interested in going, I am, and would look forward to seeing you there!

I am thinking of hosting another CSA workday here on the farm either Sunday May 28th or Sunday June 4th. Please email me with your preference if you have one, and I will let you all know the date for sure in next weeks newsletter. 

I am excited about the new group listserve that was just created.  A good number of you have asked to be signed up for the listserve, and I think I still actually need to add some of your names to it, but have added most.  Lets get some conversation going!  Also, I am sorry I was a day late on sending out the early notification email this week, this is going to just take me getting used to it, sometimes I am not totally sure on Mondays exactly what you all will be getting, but I guess in that case I can always send you a tentative list.

What To Look Forward To....

There is a lot to look forward to right now as the later spring crops are starting to reach maturity.  The broccoli is starting to head up, and I am pretty sure that we will have enough of it next week to give to everyone.  We may have to wait two weeks though for enough of them to reach maturity, hopefully not though.  The cauliflower is coming on as well, carrots (orange, red, yellow) are all doing well and will be in boxes most likely by next week.  That is all for now, look forward to chatting with those of you I see at market, and please, donŐt forget to email me with any feedback.  Thanks!  Elise.
