I’m so excited about this week’s share! Little Farmer and I were discussing this over dinner last night and we’ve decided that the Baby Salad Kale in this week’s share is probably our favorite crop grown on our farm. (We were both chowing down on the kale salad with lemon, garlic and bread crumbs… recipe below.) DO NOT COOK THIS KALE! It is meant to be eaten raw in a salad. You can dress it up with your favorite house dressing, but I really cannot stress enough how fabulous our kale salad recipe is!

I must also note that this is the first time EVER that we’ve grown napa cabbage for the CSA. It’s a really lovely variety of cabbage with crisp-tender leaves. I’ve shared two great recipes below.

Golden Earthworm welcomes you to explore their website to learn more about our farm and the wonderful things you can do with your weekly share.


If you have questions or concerns about your share, please do not hesitate to contact the farm. That is one of the benefits of knowing where your food comes from!
