Week 12 - Sept 11th, 2013 - Better make some salsa!!


Tomatoes!!!!  We have tomatoes coming out our ears.  We loaded you up this week and at the end of this newsletter we re-posted our fresh salsa recipe.  It is perfect for this box since you have an abundance of tomatoes, peppers, cilantro and onions.
The CSA potluck is THIS SUNDAY!  We are really excited to have you out and get to know you better.  We will also have some produce available for you to take home if you would like it.  Things like tomatoes for canning and large zucchini for baking.  Please feel free to bring the whole family!  We only ask that you don’t bring your dogs.  We love dogs but not everyone shares that feeling (including our chickens).  Also, it may become an issue with so much food around.  The last event we had this year, our own dog ate ALL the cookies while we were giving the farm tour.  I love cookies. 

Please let us know if you plan on attending so we can get a head count and give out directions!

WHAT’S IN YOUR BOX THIS WEEK:
Tomatoes
Eggplant
Green Beans
Onions
Cilantro
Sweet and Hot Peppers
Rosemary
Swiss Chard
Cucumbers

We will be having a mushroom inoculation workshop on Sunday, Sept 29th!  The cost is $75 ($60 for CSA members) and it will include a presentation, farm tour, lunch, hands-on inoculating experience and a shiitake log to take home.  Let us know if you are interested in attending!

Your Farmers,

Bryan and Katelyn

RECIPES WE THOUGHT YOU WOULD ENJOY:

Molly Lynn’s Fresh Salsa
1 pound fresh tomatoes
1/2 small onion, roughly chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed
1/2-1 jalapeno, seeded or not (depends on how spicy you like it)
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
small to medium size handful of cilantro
juice of 1 lime
Salt to flavor
Put all the ingredients in the base of a food processor or good blender and pulse to combine for 30 seconds or so until all the ingredients are finely chopped and salsa is desired consistency. Taste for seasoning and adjust to taste. Serve with chips or over tacos.
