Better sign up soon for the Fall CSA because we may scale our numbers back and space will be limited! Stay tuned in the next few days for the e-mail, which will first go out a day before to CSA members, and then to the general public. First come, first serve. This winter, we’re adding MEAT to the CSA! I can’t wait! In other news, I want to say THANK YOU to my co-worker Serena Putterman. They have been putting in 100% – often pulling 10 hour shifts. After a three month initial period, Serena is now our Assistant Farm Manager. Serena oversees seeding, transplanting, washing/packing, documentation, and the Providence farmer’s market! Also, our farmhand Justin Lamouthe will be returning to teach in a week. We are now in search for a new farmhand – 20 – 30 hours a week and pay $10 – 12/hour + unlimited access to farm produce. Please help us forward our job description – coming soon.
YARD LONG BEANS.
These babies stir-fry particularly well, or they can be cut up and eaten raw. They are a whole new bean, so don’t try to compare them to the standard green bean. Here are a few recipe ideas.
