From 5-4-2012 farm



That Bok Choy is so wild and crazy!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Catch Bluebird Farmer this Saturday at the
Morganton Farmers’ Market 8-noon
Conover Farmers’ Market 7:30-noon
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We’ll have fresh eggs, pastured pork, and chicken, all from animals fed certified organic grains and raises outdoors.

Freshly harvested from the garden:
Bok Choy- Add chopped uncooked Bok Choy to salads to add a crisp texture! Lightly sauté with mushrooms, sausage, and a dash of soy sauce.

Pea shoots- add these tender little shoots and flowers to your salad. The shoots have a snap pea flavor and the texture of delicate baby spinach
Mini Head Lettuce- Romaine and Boston bibb types
Baby Lettuce Mix- You always need a package of baby lettuce mix in your fridge in the spring! It’s the season of freshly harvested salads.
Dill- Sprinkle chopped fresh dill over a salad of arugula, radishes, and goat cheese. The taste of spring.
Cilantro- There is no substitution for chopped cilantro. Try chorizo, kale, and black bean tacos topped with cilantro. You won’t even miss the cheese or sour cream.
Arugula- How about arugula and strawberries or arugula and dill…
Radishes, “French Breakfast”-cut into long slices, round slices, or grate.  William, who used to not like radishes, now happily enjoys entire bunches of grated “French Breakfast” radishes dressed with a sweet white vinegar and a touch of salt. He has been converted.
Kale- We have the first harvest of this year’s spring crop. Try chorizo, kale, and black bean tacos topped with cilantro. You won’t even miss the cheese or sour cream.
