Farm Fresh

asparagus, chard, chives, kale, mushrooms, mint, mustard greens, radishes, spinach, sunchokes

What’s for Dinner?

With the sun (mostly) shining now, it’s time to start thinking in earnest about the spring CSA sign-ups. Check out my  “what’s a CSA” page for all the nuts and bolts related to CSAs.  The Oregonian has also done a nice job of detailing out some options. The Portland Farmers Market is open in full force as well, bringing so many of these farms to us each week in the Park Blocks and elsewhere around the city. You just can’t escape it…farm fresh is where it’s at! Thank you Hood River Organicfor this table toppling with bounty from our beautiful Columbia Gorge! Stay tuned, next week kicks off my summer CSA’s (Sauvie Island Organics) season. I can’t wait!
