It's so much fun getting deliveries from our purveyors. They always have such good stories about what's going on at the farm. This morning, we got a special visit from Michael at Millennium Farms in Ridgefield, Washington. We talked about his cover crop of red clover, fresh herbs, greens & leeks - how it's an unseasonably warm spring (wait, really?!), and he told us all about their new tomato plants going in very soon! We're so excited for tomatoes.
Speaking of, Cheffy just planted our own little crop of tomatoes, and they're doing just fine. Our Red Russian Kale has already almost doubled in size since we put it in a few weeks ago. We can't wait to see what happens this weekend when the Portland thermostat is slated to reach almost 80 degrees!
We hope you all get to enjoy the beautiful spring weather. Come see us for brunch this weekend - we've got CHICKEN FRIED STEAK on the menu - and for dinner - a lovely new SPRING GREEN SALAD featuring shaved fennel, bright and crunchy spring radishes, arugula & fresh herbs, dressed with lemon oil; so perfect for warm spring evenings.
