Week# 2 Veggie CSA Shares!

Posted 6/20/2019 8:02am by Aaron Lichtenberg.

Greetings to all,

This week marks the final week of school, so our staff will officially double come Saturday, yay! 

We already have had two takers on the recipe "contest"! Here is the link to Drew DiCarli's Pac Choi Stuffed Pork Tenderloin with Maple Bourbon Sauce. (by the way this is a rising star chef-in-the-making...this is a 13 (soon to be 14) year old boy!). 

The second winner is Anne LaVin. She came back strong after attempting to foil the judges by submitting a recipe from last season's CSA...with not one, but two submissions: A Strawberry Rhubarb Jam and a Strawberry Rhubarb Galette! (Both can be found in our recipe bank under rhubarb)

The third winner is Dorothy Allard with Maple Cinnibarb Rolls. They sound fantastic!

Keep those entries coming in. We love to share your recipes. (and keep the humor coming...we enjoy having fun with you all, and it helps us through the long days of farming!)

Farm happenings include Aaron's newest experiment with working with nature instead of against it: mycorrhizal fungi. It is a complicated process of encouraging the growth of arbuscular mycorrhizal to support the nutrient needs and help with water uptake (Liz tried to take a crash-course by reading an felt a lot like her time taking Organic Chemistry - lots of reading, rereading, and processing). Aaron is now on the third stage of the process that started with fermenting cooked rice, and the heat it is generating is pretty amazing...@ 120 F. We can't wait to see what benefits might be yielded from this trial...we hope there is one as it feels a bit like blind hope!
