There is still a chance for you to come to the morning work party next Saturday 23rd.
If you are already coming or you are interested in coming, check out the deets on the work party here.  And RSVP if you already have not
I honestly thought I would probably never say this. But it is time to catch up with the times a bit so….
Many of you might not even notice, but the address of this little blog has changed. We just switched to .net. But you probably never will never notice. Especially if you are clicking the link in the weekly email reminder.
The .org address now belongs to the our farm website. We needed it to help facilitate the new simplified ordering and csa management system that we will be implementing pretty soon.
Here is list of 5 beet green recipes adapted from an article by Robin Shreeves on 
  1. Beet Greens and Feta Pasta – Wilted beet greens, sauteed onions and garlic, along with a little pasta water make a simple sauce for Penne pasta that’s topped with Feta.
  2. Grilled Goat Cheese Pizza with Figs, Beets, and Wilted Greens – Sweet figs and tangy goat cheese pair with beets and their greens on this pizza that’s perfect now that we’re all firing up our grills.
  3. Lemon and Butter Braised Beet Greens – Simple and quick, this side dish comes together in less than 10 minutes.
  4. Spicy Beet Green Crostini – Beet greens are sauteed with red chile pepper flakes and garlic, then placed on top of toasted baguette slices.
  5. Salad of Edible Radish, Beet & Carrot Top Green – This no-waste recipe uses the tops from three different root vegetables and tops them with a vermouth vinaigrette. Add any other salad topping you like,  

Remember, if you do not have enough spinach for the amount you want to make, just add some chard or even beet greens!
This salad can be a dinner in itself with roasted beets, berries, feta cheese and spring mix.  I am guessing that the satsuma’s will go well quite nicely here too.
