The “Tell” – Springdell Winter CSA Pickup #9


Hi everyone!

Guess what?!??  Springdell Farms opened for the season today!  (Ok, April Fools, it actually opens tomorrow, April 2nd!) To celebrate, they are having BYOD (Bring Your Own Donut) and Tim from Muddy Water Coffee in Acton will be there.  Grab a cup of Tim’s delicious coffee and take a morning stroll around the farm!  We hope to see you there!

In the meantime, we’ve had a busy and delicious week with pickup #9.  Let’s review our “Tell”

Here are some recipes featuring Springdell meats:

 

Jess has been hoarding the remainder of her meats as we slowly worked our way through holiday leftovers this week. However, Nan baked a blueberry pie using some of my berries frozen from last summer. (Yes, this is the same Nan that just suffered a stroke a few weeks ago.  If this isn’t a boon for eating local, I don’t know what is!) These blueberries were as beautiful and tasty as the day they were picked!

Here is whats left of an edible Easter basket from Fat moon filled with beautiful pea shoots. My kids adore these, and taking a picture of these without little hands involved proved to be tough. The shoots are tiny sugar snap pea plants which are edible, tasting just like peas. It’s one of our favorite snacks of the season, and a great way to get little ones to eat their veggies!
