Week Five Spring CSA: Rainy Days, Lush Gardens, and a Grand Event

Celebrating Spring: Week 5 of Our CSA Adventure

As we embrace the fifth week of our Spring CSA, the farm is a canvas painted with the vibrant hues of spring, despite the rain that has our boots a little muddier than usual. It’s a beautiful reminder of the cycle of growth and renewal that we are so fortunate to witness and be a part of each day.

A Morning to Remember

This week began with an extraordinary start as Deborah, Alexandra, and Michael had the honor of attending and participating in the Garden Clubs of America Event at the Grand Bohemian in Lane Park, Mountain Brook. Deborah took the stage as the keynote speaker, sharing our farm's journey, our conservation efforts, and the dreams we're nurturing for the future. It was a heartwarming morning filled with connections, both renewed and newly forged, set against a backdrop of stunning blooms from fellow green thumbs.

The Farm This Week: A Symphony in Green and Grey

Back on the farm, the theme of the week is undoubtedly 'wet'. Yet, with the rain comes a lushness that can't be rivaled, painting our acres in every shade of green imaginable. The raindrops that dance on the leaves and the cool breeze that follows a downpour are nature's own melody, a tune we've come to cherish, especially in the spring.

From a zesty cilantro-lime dressing perfect for those frisée greens to a savory leek and mushroom tart that’s just the thing for a rainy day. We’re eager to hear how you’re using your weekly bounty in the kitchen!
