Farming is a pretty easy job to romanticize. We work outside in the fresh air all day, we harvest baskets full of beautiful vegetables and we are rewarded at the end of the day with a sense of accomplishment in seeing that tidy row of carrots we just weeded. It is a pretty awesome job and there is nothing we would rather do! But I'm sure you know it's not all sunshine and rainbows running a farm. We work outside in every kind of weather Vermont throws at us, we haul around really heavy bins of vegetables and throw a lot of it in the compost, we spend hours on our hands and knees weeding tiny carrots knowing we will be back weeding those same carrots again in a few weeks. And we absolutely love it, it is the most rewarding and humbling job we have ever had. We are surrounded by so much beauty here, from lovely little cherry tomatoes to the compost bucket filled with swiss chard stems!
This week in your share-
Hakurei turnips, Lettuce mix, New Potatoes, Tomato, Carrots, Herbs, Bunched onion, Green cabbage, Kale or Chard and a choice of Zucchini, Summer squash and Cucumber.
Since we are swimming in summer squash & zucchini right now I gave these a try. Next time I'll add some herbs and spices to the bread crumb mixture, but they were pretty good just like this-
Parmesan Squash Chips
Cabbage, Kale & Carrot Salad-
