Weekend Away...At Home

Our kids are off visiting Santa with Grandma & Grandpa and snow is falling a farming family, this is the perfect weekend "away" to think about our 2011 CSA.

Next year, our new CSA programs are challenging us to create three excellent, seasonal experiences -- a spring share, summer share and fall share -- that our 2010 CSA members helped to shape. This year's CSA members overwhelming told us "less greens please!" and as we put together our seed orders for 2011, we're keeping this mind. We're ordering more potatoes, more tomatoes, more cukes. We're thinking in terms of more successions of the things our customer like best. That said, we won't lose the our delicious greens all together (if you didn't try our fall spinach, it's a must-have ;)). Also in 2011, we'll be extending our growing season with hoop structures to get a jump start on a few crops and *hopefully* trying out new drop off locations, too. We're getting giddy with excitement and can't wait to see our friends/customers again in the spring time.

In the meantime, we had an excellent risotto with some leftover celeraic (celery root) from our fall share. Here's the recipe, give it a try! (note: we followed other reviewers ideas and added half white wine, half chicken stock).

Happy shoveling!
