Patricia and Tim cooked for our second farm lunch. Curried squash soup with sausages or chickpeas,
cabbage apple salad with a apple cider vinaigrette, butter and fresh bread from the boulangerie la vendéenne.
- Frozen corn for the full monty and vegetable shares.
- The meat share is a cured ham roast and lean ground beef - the ground beef is from Wild Mountain Farm in Baxters Harbour.
- We have a very limited amount of turkeys on add on's. If you are looking for a turkey for your Easter dinner go to the add on's quick and get one before they're gone!
-We got another greenhouse up and running. One is in Canard and one is on Church street. This means two people are up in the middle of the night and first thing in the morning to keep the fires going and make sure our little seedlings don't get cold.
-My mother come over last night and made a killer turnip recipe. It's so easy! Start by grating up a whole turnip, add a few tbsp butter (or half and half oil and butter) to a pan and saute the turnip. Spread out over the pan and put a cover on, and let cook (not stirring). This browns the turnip on the bottom of the pan, and makes the whole thing sweet and mild. Watch out it doesn't burn! We had our with some left over chicken, cabbage apple salad, quinoa and steamed carrots.
-In the results of the survey a few of you said you were having trouble with the celeriac. I've asked around here at the farm and here are a few suggestions on how we use it. Mashed, with salt, pepper, and butter (if you want it to stay creamy white boil it in half and half milk and water. Dice it up and use it in replace of any recipe that uses celery stalks. It's amazing in soups and stews. Cut into slices a little bigger than a quarter inch, with a little oil and salt and pepper. BBQ, flipping over half way through. Let us know how you are using your celeriac, we would love to share with the rest of the members.
- Saturday afternoon at the Farm -
Josh ,Kingsley, Patrick and Courtney got more tunnels up.
One greenhouse has been filled with seedlings and we are now working on filling up another one.

Easy turnip recipe -
a celeriac and potato bake.
Our ham pieces are smaller than in this recipe , but it could be easily adapted. The hams are fully cooked/cured.
