If it has been a while since you have reviewed proper procedure for dismantling your CSA box, or it is your first season as a member, please take a peek at the short video linked here.. Proper handling of CSA boxes prolongs their lives and helps keep the cost of shares low, and you all may have noticed the boxes are suffering from poor handling of late.

Happy Week 3 of the Spring CSA!
Here are some recipes inspired by the items in your share this week:

Spinach and Mushroom Frittata with Smoked Gouda
Chicken Tostadas with Radish Slaw
Savory Roasted White Sweet Potato
Baby Joi Choi Salad With Sesame Dressing <--MUST TRY! This salad is the best! We have moved all of our USDA organic veggie transplants from Greenhouse 2 to Greenhouse 3 at the farm. In House 3 our baby herbs and onions will be spoiled by warmer nights (we'll keep the thermostat around 60 degrees for them) so they get nice and big for planting out in the garden April 1st (as long as the weather cooperates!) Soon we'll be sowing early varieties of tomatoes and basil. One of the best things about working with the seasons, we are always planning for planting ahead of the weather. Warmer weather is on the way, and we intend to be ready! We hope you all have a great week, and thanks for taking a few minutes to check in with news from the farm.
