Box Builder:

We love our new CSA software program.  Farmigo allows us to build boxes (or bags) by adding and subtracting contents specific to each week. Using this as a starting point we can then generate harvest lists, packing sheets, delivery schedules, etc. We can also use it to plan cropping schedules (that’s winter work).  We got a good chuckle when we looked at this week’s packing sheet.  It was a list of best guess items which was put together sometime in February.  We’ve been farming for sixteen seasons, and you would think that we would have a pretty good grasp on what we can produce  and when it will be ready. This spring has been like no other. All the items that we have planned for the shares are in the ground and progressing well now that the weather has mellowed. We’re not complaining about the weather for the time being, but we simply need to communicate that it is going to be a slow start and that we will have lots of great veggies in the weeks to come. Thank for being patient!

Recipes:

Considering all of the salad greens members have been receiving the past few weeks we thought it would be good to share some favorite salad dressing recipes.  Bottled salad dressings are definitely convenient, but home made dressings can be mixed up in a matter of minutes and stored in mason jars (or empty salad dressing bottles).  Just cover tightly so you can give it a good shake before you drizzle on your salad.  These recipes can be doubled if you are a daily salad eater and you just want to have some extra dressing on hand.

Balsamic Vinaigrette (makes 1/2 cup of dressing)

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 large clove garlic (crushed)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Mix all ingredients together in a small jar and give a good shake.

Lemon Honey Dijon Vinaigrette

  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon and/or grainy mustard
  • 1 teaspoon grainy mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 clove garlic, grated (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Mix everything in a small jar and give a good shake.

Blue Cheese Dressing (great on spicy greens)

  • 1/4 cup blue cheese (crumbled, room temperature)
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • lemon juice to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste

Mix everything with a small whisk until smooth.
