Magney Legacy Ridge Farm:  CSA #14

Dear CSA-ers,
This week’s Preassembled Bag will contain Spinach, Summer Squash, Kohlrabbi, Lovelock Head Lettuce, Swiss Chard, Snow Peas. Orders may now be placed on the online market at:

Bright sunlit days punctuated by bouts of heavy downpour have thrown growth on the farm into full throttle. This has some real positives in terms of vegetable production and keeping our water usage and irrigation bill at bay. The downside of this is that the grass and weeds that frustrate our production are also clipping along at full pace. To a large extent, agriculture is trying to find a balance between what can be managed by our actions and the things that are beyond our control. A wise and experienced grower once described this as “massively humbling,” and those words come to mean more each day.

That said, things on the farm are coming along very well. Those of you in Murray may have seen Hannah and Katie at our farmers’ market stand the past two Saturdays. We are also looking forward to being at Paducah’s market which is set to open two weeks from now on June 13th. We are rolling into the season of summer vegetables and with the season change, so too will the items we have available through CSA. This week we are coming into zucchini and spinach in a big way as well as our peak production of snow peas.

For this reason, our featured vegetable this week is Snow Peas. This was a largely experimental crop for us this year and one of our earliest planted outdoors. They struggled along, the sprouts frozen twice and nibbled by rabbits all March and April. We had largely written them off until just last week when they seemed to burst forth with flowers and delicious pods. These tender treats are nutritional powerhouses full of Vitamin C, Vitamin K, trace minerals, and dietary fiber. They are best stir-fried or lightly steamed after removal of the tips and fibrous string along the top of the pea pod. We are very happy to be offering this one in CSA and look forward to growing more snow peas in the future.

As always, we thank you for your support of our CSA. We love hearing from you and seeing what you create with our dishes. We encourage you to reach out at any time! Wishing you and those you hold dear the best in your week to come.

The Magney Legacy Ridge Farm Team

Update from Carole’s Herbs (CS3 We have carob power balls, two flavors of shrub concentrate (drinking vinegars), and flowers!

Our carob balls are handmade, with raisins and astragalus. Carob tastes a little like chocolate, is Nutrient-Dense, low in calories, and a good source of calcium.

Try a gut-healthy Ginger-Fig or Wolfberry Mint shrub/tonic for great taste combined with nutritious ingredients. Use them as a salad dressing poured over your choice of salad greens or microgreens, or mixed with water for a delicious and refreshing drink.

The field daisies are blooming brightly — get you a dozen to brighten your home! The bachelor buttons (cornflowers) are also showing off. Bachelor Buttons are edible and medicinal, so you can “recycle” them after they are finished blooming! Make a bouquet or an edible centerpiece.

Look forward seeing you “At the Curb" of Quinn’s Mercantile Wednesday June 6th from 5:00 – 6:30pm, please contact me if you are unable to make delivery or are running late, please phone, email or text me so we can make arrangements to get your order to you.

Champaign, OH:  Garlic Scapes-Culinary Delights

Hello, and once again, new growth in this season…

We now welcome Garlic Scape season!! It’s a short lived season, they are AMAZING, and it’s like being given a gift to treasure in your foodie bag of tricks…

A word from Carla and Jenny of JCGrowers!!

C Growers Gourmet Garlic Scapes are available this week on the Virtual Market

Thankfully they freeze well because the season comes and goes so quickly. They can be used in everything. Our favorite is the garlic scape green bean style, sautéed in olive oil or butter until they are the color of a cooked green bean salt and pepper to taste. I love the wizards home made pasta with garlic scape pesto way to much. Great on salads, baked potatoes even eggs. Use your imagination and enjoy.

Champaign, OH:  Helplessly Hoping

Gasping at glimpses of gentle true spirit he runs
Wishing he could fly…
(Crosby, Stills & Nash)

I’ve had this on replay, all morning, for it’s beauty, it’s message of hoping…

I wanted to wish you a love filled day, and to remind you of the love that you will find, each and every time you place an order for market goodness.

Your market manager is taking a bit of time, today, to go hang out with long time friend from high school. She has a lovely oasis of a backyard, we will be socially distanced, sipping chilled afternoon drinks, and having some much needed chat time.

I hope that you find a bit of an oasis for yourselves, today, wherever that may be.
