May 14th, 2016 Market

We finally made it to our first market!  For the first time, we were able to bring our seven year old son, Sage. He was such a big help and I am so proud that we are raising a child with a strong work ethic. He proudly boxed and displayed the romaine lettuces for us. The best part was him helping us prepare for market Friday night. It was awesome watching him play.

We really missed our customers and they missed us!  It is so good to feel loved! We brought out a great spread. We had honey, spring garlic, the most beautiful leeks, arugula, field greens, chard, spring onions, cute baby butter crunch lettuce, and romaine lettuce.

My favorite thing this week was the romaine lettuces. I love to copy cat PF Changs famous lettuce wraps with them!  Total fresh yum!

Spring garlic is an awesome treat this time of year. For some great ideas click here.  My favorite way to eat this is truly the simplest. Sautée in olive oil and toss some fresh shrimp in it and DONE. Easy and healthy dinner!

Matt grew the best leeks ever!  Many folks told me they were going to grill them!  Simply split them in half, brush some olive oil on them and put them on the grill.  Yumm!

Get ready for squash and garlic scrapes!  We expect to have them next week. As always, thank you for patiently waiting for our return. I am happiest at market because of each of you!  Blessings until next week.
