Strategies for Survival + RECIPE: Bahn Mi Burgers

This season is a beast. Everything that’s happened so far is just a blur in the rear view mirror. I’ve almost forgotten that this season started with a freak blizzard, a hail storm on our baby brassicas, construction of a second greenhouse, a rhubarb patch, and our first asparagus field. I’ve almost forgotten that we…

Farm Party + RECIPE: Summer Squash Tuna Melt Casserole

There are a lot of things I love about summer. I love the simplicity of grilled meals. I love the bounty. I love the way our little state comes alive with excitement and joy, suddenly remembering all the reasons they love being alive. I love watching my hard work manifest in front of me and the…

Surviving the Heat + RECIPE: Zucchini, Chard & Chickpea Tacos

We followed this strange pattern for the entire month of June. The work week typically began with a major storm event that pummeled our field with anywhere from 2-4 inches of rain. It then gave way to lovely weather that would be perfect to work in had the fields not been far too wet to…

Guest Post: Flowers as Self-Care and Nourishment

This year begins my deep and thoughtful journey into both flowers and self care. If you’ve been reading my blog or following along with my story on Instagram for any amount of time, you know self care is something I fight to fit in on a daily or weekly basis. It’s not always easy, and…

Clean Fields + RECIPE: Shaved Asparagus, Spinach & Mushroom Quiche

Things are looking good my friends. Things are looking really, really good and although I sometimes feel as if my husband is a drill sergeant I’m starting to understand the method behind his brilliance. We’ve been working lots of long days lately– mostly because it’s June and the weeds keep growing, and though sometimes I…

Go Mode + RECIPE: Spring Harvest Grain Salad

I always do this.  I always think that May is our busiest month and I burn my candle at both ends all month long and then when June hits, I’m (not) surprisingly very tired. I tell myself it’s June and I can let off the gas a bit so I make time to rest and…

Burgers & Brews + RECIPE: Ginger Pork Burgers

Was it just a holiday? Did I hear something about a long weekend happening? I can’t be quite sure because I was doing my best to avoid Instagram altogether while sweating out 150+ ounces of water daily from the 90+ degree fields.   For us, it wasn’t so much a relaxing weekend as it was…

May + RECIPE: Ramp Green Goddess Dressing

Can we talk about where May went? Because the hell if I know. All of a sudden I looked up from the fields and not only was one of my favorite months coming to a close, but our CSA is almost ready to begin, our list of crops to transplant is tremendous, and the temperatures…

Mother’s Day Cheese Board + RECIPE: Pickled Shittakes

This spring has already had such an interesting rhythm. A perfect combination of sprinting to get as much done as humanly possible in the span of 24 (or 48 or 72) hours followed by enough rain to give us time to recover. We’re able to keep busy while also able to stay (reasonably) sane which…
