From the farm….
Forget the groundhog. The days are certainly getting longer and we start seeding in the greenhouse in about 3 weeks, so I’m just going to go ahead and plan on spring coming soon. Until then, we have lots of delicious winter veggies to fill up your kitchen, your table, and your bellies. I’ve been supplementing our own produce at the grocery store this winter and it’s pretty depressing, Everything looks limp, lifeless and sad. What a difference when I opened up the winter share box this afternoon! Even though these root veggies have been stored in our coolers for the past few months, they are so full of vibrancy, color and nutrition. They’re also bursting with flavor! My week’s menu includes celeriac soup, sweet potato pie, rutabaga & root veg galette, juiced carrots and beets and hash browns. What are you guys making? Post your recipes and tips on our Members Facebook page and follow along on our Instagram feed to see what we’re cooking here in the farmhouse kitchen. Bon appetite!
