    CSA Friday Week 10: Summer Harvest Tacos

    Due to unfortunate technical difficulties involving a smart phone that can’t seem to get it together in the screen not being messed up department, I am severely lacking on photographs this week. That being said, the food was out of this world, and I highly recommend trying it out. I found some stellar homemade tortillas…

    CSA Friday Week 7: Ratatouille

    At the bottom of the bag this week, a beautiful little zucchini. “Oh, god,” I thought, “It’s zucchini season.” I’m used to zucchini season being a time when there is just too much god damn zucchini and too many ways to cook it badly. I’ve never been one to enjoy zucchini so much as to…

    CSA Friday 2: Turnip Leaf Pesto

    Permaculture Design Principle: Produce No Waste. When you have an extra bit of vegetable matter such a the tops of radishes, turnips, carrots, etc., it’s always important to remember that these things can still be eaten! There are hard-earned vitamins and minerals in those leaves. Those little plants spend weeks photosynthesizing their hearts out through…
