Peas, peas, peas

3 kinds of peas today! They are labeled with what they are and how to prepare them. I think the shelling peas should be shelled and eaten on your way home :-). Most CSAs do not pick peas, beans and cherry tomatoes. We do - we want you to experience these veggies and not have to do the work of harvesting them. You are always welcome to come hang out with us and work on the farm (Thanks, Sandy!) any time! Call ahead and we can give you an idea of good times to come.

Chard has been called the vegetable with the best return. It grows in all sorts of conditions and soil, from Spring through Fall, and will even winter over.
Good chard recipes:
  • Saute onions and garlic, then throw in washed and chopped chard (stems removed or not, your choice). Saute about 5 minutes longer. Add tamari or salt and pepper, or season with toasted sesame oil and a little rice wine vinegar.
  • Wash and place on a large sheet of foil. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper. Seal the foil and grill both sides for 3-5 minutes a side.
  • Use large chard leaves with stalks removed as wraps for taco-type ingredients. Or wrap any kind of sandwich filling.
  • Chop or shred and add to an omelet.
