2018 Week 49, Winter 1 of 13
Sixty-plus degrees though today may be, welcome to the Winter CSA! How exciting. I spent a really, really lovely afternoon digging another bed of carrots, and even stopped a bit on the way back to … stop. As my friend Ferris Bueller likes to say, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
There is sugar spinach in the pile this week. Not for the tongue-in-cheek diabetic, nor those watching their sweets before the holidays. Spinach uses sugar as an anti-freeze in its leaves, which means some super — sometimes cloyingly — yummy greens at this time of the year.
I’m super excited for you guys to try the Althea Bread this week. If it’s half as good as last week’s, I will have to sell the farm to support my new lunchtime passion. If you’re not on the aforementioned sweets-free diet, try it toasted and spread with butter and the farm honey! Mmmm … Or, dipped into some rooty stew. I have had the heat off and the slow cooker on, tiny as the office is, working my way toward some winter soup for just such a purpose.
See you on the farm,
