Welcome to the blog.

Come downtown Madison to the Farmers' Market and find Andy and the Sprouting Acres tent across from Starbucks. He will have zucchini, cucumbers, baby onions, fresh garlic, basil, the first carrots, a little eggplant, red potatoes and more! The weather is going to be great so hope to see you there.

Hello again,


This Saturday there is a self guided garden tour of several gardens and farms, Sprouting Acres is one of them. Andy will not be at the farm till after the market on the square but it is still a great opportunity to see several gardens in the Cambridge area to help raise money for the new library. Below is the press release. Have a great weekend!

Welcome to week 8. We hope you are trying to stay cool. It's hard for us to but we make several trips to the walk-in cooler when we need a break. Problem is, 40 degrees is pretty cold after about 5 minutes. Back out to the fields we go. 

Below is the newsletter link. We hope you try some of the cold dishes this week.

Hello,

 

We sent out the newsletter last night and are just sending out one more reminder that CSA boxes will be delivered today, July 3rd, instead of the 4th. We hope you have a great holiday.

Look for Andy under a white Sprouting Acres tent a few stalls past Starbucks. If not there, keep looking. It's a small 8' tent so don't blink or look at the capitol, you'll miss him. He's bringing dry beans from last fall, chard, lots of different kale, collards, chiogga beets, head lettuce, garlic and more. 

Hope to see you there.

Thanks for waiting for the recipes. I only had to wake up at 2:00 and 4:00 to pump the basement out. Both times feel like I was dreaming. Here is the added page with recipes for the newsletter. The garlic in the box is fresh garlic. It can be used like regular "cured" garlic. It is not as strong as cured but is delicious and fresh tasting. If you leave it out on the counter it will dry in a week or so. Or toss it in the fridge to keep it from drying as fast. 


Here is the 2nd half of the newsletter.

Welcome to week five. We are busy bailing out water in the farm basement(folks out of town, trying to save furnace) so check back tomorrow for recipes and more news. This week is an ODD EOW so you will be picking up an EOW box if your site is Stoughton, Farm, Oregon, or Dean clinic.


We have a lot of plants growing quickly with the water and heat and hope for some new veggies over the next couple weeks. Bear with us as we try to dry out and send some of this water back in time to last season. That would be nice. Have a great weeknd and remember, next week's boxes will be delivered on Wednesday the 3rd instead of the 4th of July. You will get a couple more reminders about the switch next week.

 


Thanks
