CSA Newsletter–July 25-27, 2017

P1050449

This post is late this week–due to family visiting, children’s theater performances, and some exciting new additions to our farm.  One week ago, we adopted a new milking goat to our little herd–having given up on turning our other two does into milkers this season.  And then, just when I thought things were settled, our younger goat, Astrid, gave birth to twins!  That’s right–we have baby goats on the farm again ! I will post pictures soon, and those of you stopping by for your CSA on Tuesday might get to meet these two.  : )

We found a terrific recipe for a Napa Cabbage Picnic Salad.  Loved that it included scallions, radishes, cilantro and snow peas.  If you have some of these hanging around in your crisper drawer, this salad is a great use for them.

If you are trying to find uses for summer squash and zucchini, look no further than the CSA recipes link from Driftless Organics.  If nothing else, chop up SSquash or Zucchini and add to a green salad–or to the napa cabbage salad above!

Have a great week!
