Before we get into this week’s “tell” of the Springdell Show and Tell, we wanted to share that we are continuing our series over on the Springdell Blog called Meet the Farmers/Meet the Shareholders. During the series, we profile one farmer and one shareholder every month or so. This allows an opportunity for us to get to know our Farm Family a little bit better, on both sides of the farm stand counter. Today, we feature Springdell Staffer Sara Bempkins. We hope you’ll hop over to the Springdell blog and check it out, and please tune in tomorrow when we highlight a fellow shareholder!
This has been a busy week of cooking and enjoying! Here’s a recap of what we had in our CSA boxes for the week, and how we enjoyed it all!

Now a quick word from Jess:
Y’all have lots to read tonight with the blog post over on the Springdell Blog, so I’ll keep my notes short and sweet. I did just want to mention a few things I’m eager to taste! Tonight I’m trying out a couple of new recipes, including one that Sharon M shared on the Facebook page. It’s simmering it as I type this, and it smells quite delish in here!
I was in a waiting room somewhere recently and picked up a Rachel Ray Magazine with a recipe for “Scrappy Pickles“. I’m giving the recipe a try tonight, using cabbage and lettuce cores, carrot, zucchini, squash and cuke nubs. These sound like they’ll be ready to taste in about a week, so I’ll keep you posted on the next Tell!
