Firday Farm Share, Week 3

Before I get back to the front garden, it's time for Friday Farm Share - Week 3. Every Friday through the fall, Holyoke Home is sharing images from our weekly farm share at Mountain View Farm. I hope you enjoy seeing what the farm has to offer.

Mountain View adds sweetness to our visits by putting beautiful flowers here and there.
 It's not at all unusual to find tiny bouquets around the share room - of flowers from the cutting beds.
 New this season? Local grass-fed beef and I-don't-know-how-they're-fed pork.
Have you ever had roasted Cauliflower? 450 degrees, some EVOO, salt and pepper, maybe some Mediterranean spices? Yum.
New this week? Chinese cabbage. I could LIVE on this salad during the summer: Chop a head of Chinese cabbage, add some chopped peanuts, cilantro, mint, scallions and cucumber. Then make a spicy vinaigrette with rice wine vinegar, fish sauce and sesame oil. Toss everything together and season to taste with salt and pepper flakes. Yum!
 Have a great weekend!

    i am so drooly over those veggies. i love napa cabbage, and kohlrabi! oh, i could just die.

  4. The pork and beef are from other local farms, not Mountain View! Erin - I don't know how expensive the meat is. I buy ours at the Saturday Open Square farmers' market.

  5. I'm so ready for our farmer's market to start! Looks like such a fun place to shop and everything looks so fresh too!

  6. Love fresh veggies. Makes me want to eat salads all summer long.
