This is the 7th week of my CSA from Sol to Seed Farm and what a box! This share is generously filled with colorful vegetables. This weeks box includes:
Salad Mix – 1.25 lbs!
Beans – 1.5 lbs (Haricot, Yellow, Dragon’s Tongue)
(…and free loaf of Como bread from Grand Central Baking Co.)
In Farmer Matt’s opinion, the Haricot (a French green bean) is the best tasting bean one can grow. I’m anxious to try this first bean harvest lightly cooked with a little butter and sea salt. I’m considering making a pint or two of pickled yellow beans (they’re great garnishes for Bloody Mary‘s or in salads).
The Snoqualmie Valley Preservation Alliance (SVPA) is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization committed to the safety of residents and businesses impacted by flooding and to the preservation of the rural nature of the Snoqualmie River Valley. Growing Things Farm (my previous CSA farm) and Sol to Seed Farm are part of SVPA, a group farm neighbors and land owners that took the Army Corps. of Engineers to court in order to prevent a widening at the mouth of Snoqualmie Falls. Today the SVPA is hosting a “Taste of the Valley Dinner & Auction” at the beautiful Jubilee Farm to help raise funds for legal costs. Even if you cannot attend this event, please consider supporting the SVPA with a tax deductible donation at http://svpa.us. You can also see photos of previous floods and get the latest news and information.
Eat it to save it.
