What I did with the Napa Cabbage is I made

Napa Salad

1 head of Napa Cabbage, large leaves removed ( I use the large leaves as wraps for lunch)

5-7 baby carrots shredded

1 small onion diced

2 T minced pickled ginger

Radish sliced into match stick pieces

1 Package of Ramen noodles slightly crushed (do not use the seasoning packet, I save them and melt ice off of our sidewalk with it in the winter)

Sesame Ginger Dressing of choice, ( I used Newman’s Own)

Slice the cabbage into 1/2″ strips and toss with remaining ingredients and serve chilled.

 

 

I  baked a ton of bread for this week , look for some of our new recipes like Sundried Tomato and Muesli as well of our old favorites like Sourdough Rye and Whole Wheat.

Some other items we will see this week is lettuce, swiss chard, pak choi, sugar snap peas, baby carrots and baby squash.

Weeding Wednesdays Begin!!!

If you are wondering how you can get some volunteer time in, then you can come and join us for Weeding Wednesdays here at the farm.

Also, We can use help to set up and pack up at the markets in the town nearest you.

I love to get recipes from everyone and email is the best way to submit them… Each recipe is worth 30 minutes of volunteer time!

We really appreciate the support and excitement from our CSA members this year thank you all so much!
