Katie and I are really excited to give you the first ever CSA box from Patchwork Farms. Don’t forget to pick it up Monday between 12 and 8pm. One of us will be there and we’re happy to give you a lil’ tour of the farm if you want one. The plants have recovered really well from the hail and strong winds and the hot weather and rain have been great. Since it’s been so hot all I’ve wanted to eat are salads so this box is going to be all stocked up for salad making. Some things you can expect to find in your box are:
Basil and Lemon Basil
I made a green goddess dressing the other night with some basil from the farm so I wanted to share the “recipe” with you. I say “recipe” in quotes because I kind of made it up and didn’t measure anything but I’ll give you the ingredients and approximate amounts
Basil Green Goddess Dressing
3 cloves of garlic (or garlic scapes if you have them)
Plenty of basil
lemon juice to taste
tamari to taste
a few tablespoons of tahini
a few splashes of apple cider vinegar
plenty of olive oil to make it creamy and liquidy
a couple of tbsp of sunflower seeds
I would just throw everything in the food processor a little bit at a time and keep tasting it until it tastes garlicky and basil-y and delicious.
Also there are 2 spots left for people to join the CSA so if you know anyone who is interested, let me know.
See you soon!
Molly and Katie
