Pick-Your-Own, Farm Market & CSA

Weekly Update

March 28th, 2015

Greetings!

White to green, 41 degrees to 70 plus in the blink of an eye...it's spring in Colorado! Green and "greens" are the story this week. The deep blue greens of new grass, the yellow greens of newly formed leaves, the sage green of tiny kochia (weeds!), the rows of narrow green garlic leaves and the delicious greens of spinach, chard, kale, micro-greens and more.

Our farm market will be open tomorrow, Saturday March 28th, from 10 am until 2 pm. If you are feeling hesitant about trying chard or kale, these are the ones to try. They are extremely fresh and full of flavor - mild, non-bitter flavor - and are among the easiest of vegetables to prepare. They are also sublimely versatile in the kitchen. We have a number of simple and tasty recipes for you to try. You don't want to miss out on these spring super-foods!

Eggs supply is continuing to increase. We are nicely stocked with the wonderful grass-fed beef from Heartsong Farm. Grilling season is upon on - their steaks are so tender and delicious. We also have roasts and a prime rib roast perfect for Easter dinner.

Here's what's growing in our hoophouse

The alpaca worm compost is in. This is THE stuff to use in your garden to give your soil the nutrients and humus it needs. It is wonderful in containers and for house plants as well. Larger quantities are available and are on sale through April. Information is available in the market.

Lots to do as we enter spring planting season on the farm. I'm off to pick! Enjoy!

CSA enrollment continues through the end of March. We have a few shares left and would be glad to serve you. Think a full share might be too much? A half-share is every other week pick-up.

Bread shares are a delicious and healthy way to eat your whole grains. Great Harvest freshly grinds their organic wheat to make breads for us. The CSA share offers a great value on a great product.

We welcome you to join us and experience for yourself some of the joys of our journey on a beautiful early spring day. We can't guarantee a meadowlark will sing but can assure you that you will see roosters, mountains and early spring green! Enjoy!
