The Springdell Show and Tell – Spring Jumpstart CSA Pickup #2 2


Hello everyone, Jess here with the latest pickup from Springdell Farm. I wanted to remind folks that there’s a special FAQ that includes info on some of what’s available at the farm stand, the hours, etc… Please feel free to check it out, I update it daily and hopefully it can help you find the answers to general questions, and maybe plan your shopping lists and farm visits some. Now let’s get back to the emerald green springtime action found in the 2nd Jumpstart share of the Springdell CSA season!

  • Lettuce (We love the shape of these leaves for lettuce wraps. For longer storage, separate leaves from the core, wash and store damp dry in a cloth lettuce bag or wet paper towels.)
  • Asparagus (Springdell’s yummy ‘grass!- If you’re in the Jumpstart CSA, here’s a reminder to check the whiteboard and don’t accidentally leave these lovelies behind!)
  • Eggs (The perfect protein-packed harbinger of springtime veggies)
  • Fiddleheads(I’m trying out Alan Bergo’s recipe for Bread and Butter Pickled Fiddleheads this week!)
  • Kale (These little leaves look great for kale chips!)
A frittata is a simple and wonderful way to enjoy these spring veggies!
Had some fancy plans for these golden beets, but ran out of time and enjoyed them instead on a pizza! Roasted beets with cheese such as Mozzarella House Mozzarella and balsamic glaze are a favorite of mine.
Our orange seeds sprouted from Farmer Jamie’s garden project! I’m excited to see how big these orange trees get! Lettuce cores are re-growing in the background and we’ll see what happens when we transplant them in our outdoor garden.
Here are some yummy ‘shrooms tossed with spinach, asparagus, cream, garlic, and white wine before tossing with pasta. A meatless treat for sure!
A little waft of steam made this pic a little hazy, but it was too yummy not to share.
The crew was busy hand-trellising these tomato plants in one of the front fields recently. I can’t wait to see what lovely fruits these plants produce!

I think that’s it for this week! Please check in as always, I love to hear of questions you may have about veggies, new recipes you’ve tried, or just generally how things are going. Drop a line anytime!
