Robins have begun to appear in the fields, and we even spotted a pair of killdeer searching for a nesting site: a sure sign of spring!
The kohl rabi and carrots continue to hold their sweet crisp, and we’re getting more promise of fresh greens to come! It’ll be entirely dependent on the weather, but we may surprise you with things like spinach in the kits in the coming weeks if our farmers can get into the fields and snag it before the cold does!
We’re marinating some vegetables this week using Laurel’s freshly boiled maple syrup, and serving it over blue corn polenta- grown by Kate & Jude at Neighborhood Farm. We’re also taking advantage of the last of the squash with some sunny fritters, and we’re trying a new recipe of Vietnamese Pho (pronounced ‘fah’), which will have scrumptious NH-grown mushrooms in it.
Attention Cambridge dwellers: We’re having a tasting and knitting gathering at Gather Here next Thursday March 16th. Bring a knitting project, eat some al FreshCo, and hang out! 6-8pm.
