How Do You Prepare Pea Shoots?


There are many ways to prepare pea shoots.  Some thoughts from friends include:
  • Alone and crisp;
  • In a salad with a light vinaigrette;
  • On sandwiches;
  • Sautéed and put into an omelette, quesadilla, or tossed with pasta; and
  • Alongside some grilled tuna or salmon.

Around the Farm


Welcome to summer (almost).  We have been busy, getting ready for our farm share community.  After studying the forecasts and crop progress, we have announced the first of the scheduled pickup, which are:
  • 15th of June for the Thursday pickups;
  • 17th of June for Saturday; and 
  • 20th of June for Tuesday.  
While also preparing for markets and our stand, yesterday was our first wedding of the season.  And we have some just hatched chicks, and our new little pig is making sure there is never a dull moment.

We look forward to seeing our old CSA friends while making new ones, and for those who have not been by the farm, here are some pictures of what has been going on.

Rhubarb Compote (Stewed Rhubarb) over Ice Cream


Fresh rhubarb is in season for many.  Here is an easy recipe for a surprisingly tasty topping used over vanilla or chocolate ice cream. While some may call it "rhubarb compote," many others prefer the more descriptive "stewed rhubarb."
