Gearing Up for Growth
So many plants are popping up around the farm this week! Many of them are things we've grown before, but not at this farm, like swiss chard, snap peas, and strawberries. But some of them are things we've never grown before period like sweet corn! We're also turning over one of our faithful winter growing spaces from salad greens to cucumbers this weekend, which is a sure sign of summer to come! We found a few flowers on our strawberry plants this week, so fingers crossed that they'll make delicious berries and that the deer won't eat them all. Cross your fingers for a berry-ful spring!

What We're Eating
Wilted Mustard Greens
This is one of my favorite way to eat greens, period! Put a little bit of a neutral oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the greens, stir, and cook for a couple of minutes. Add about 1T soy sauce, stir, and cook for a couple more minutes. Serve topped with white and black sesame seeds. Enjoy!
Have a great week!
