All of our subscribers are requested to attend our CSA orientation on Wednesday, June 2 from 5:30 until 7:30 at our farm in Indianola. Important information regarding how our CSA operates and how to pick up your veggies will be covered in a presentation. You will be asked to pay the balance of your share, and will be given the opportunity to sign up for add on shares on a first come first serve basis. You will pick up your bag of delicious food at our farm orientation, note, no pick up at the Johnson farm the first week. You have an opportunity to look around the farm and meet our new interns. To make the whole thing even more enjoyable, we will provide farm fresh appetizers. We are looking forward to seeing you there.
Monday the lambs arrived! This year, from Ann Morse, who bred our little herd of seven Suffolks on her Bainbridge Island farm. They are beautiful animals. Read about their arrival on Bill’s blog, The Season.
-1 pat of butter
-About 2 ounces of leeks, thinly sliced
-A handful of kale, coarsly chopped
-An ounce of your favorite grating cheese
Beat the eggs with a touch of water and a touch of salt and pepper. Heat a skillet with the butter and add the leeks, cooking till slightly brown and soft, then add kale. Add the eggs to the pan, cook for about 30 seconds, then add the grated cheese. Fold one side over the other. Flip, lower the heat, cover for a minute, and serve with a dollop of pesto or a bit more cheese on top. Enjoy!
Louisa and Rebecca welcomed the 2010 apprentices, Joel, Mondrian aka “Moe”, Caitlin and Greg. The weather was fine for their first week at Persephone. Welcome to Indianola!
Don’t miss, “The Season”, a blog of life through the growing season on Persephone Farm written by Bill Richards. “Our season runs from March 1, when our four apprentices arrive from around the U.S., to the final slaughter of our turkeys and lambs in Nov. Over that time, you will get to know Persephone farm through words, photos, videos and sound bites, and we will discuss issues of food economics and politics through the lens of our farm. Join us in this annual adventure.”
