Backyard Gardens CSA: Week 15 — September 11, 2014

Brrrr, it must be chilly because the geese are packing up and heading out for the coming winter. We’ll do our part and help keep the tomatoes around a little longer, especially since next Thursday, at the last Enterprise farmers’ market, as well as at the Saturday market, there’s a tomato tasting with 50 or […]

Backyard Gardens CSA: Week 14 — September 4, 2014

Welcome to another edition of the BYG CSA. As promised last go round, potatoes are in, and everybody gets some! Three pounds worth of Red Pontiacs to do with as you please, though I included a classic potato and green bean recipe because, you guessed it, green beans are in, too. Don’t be fooled by […]

Backyard Gardens CSA: Week 13 — August 28, 2014

What a beautiful day! I’ve taken after Glen, who we all keep seeing at work on the front porch while we’re washing, and so I’ve co-opted his office since he’s out for the afternoon 🙂 Glen knows that with this lovely weather it’s hard to stay inside for long, especially after it’s warmed up a bit from […]

Backyard Gardens CSA: Week 12 — August 21, 2014

Dear CSA members, If you’re out and about this weekend I recommend packing some fennel for your trip. When I was hiking the other week, I brought some and paired it with some apple, my favorite hard cheese, and some elk summer sausage. Mmmmm mmm mmm—it doesn’t get too much better than that in the backcountry! Below I’ve […]

Nick, in his Christmas suspenders, had a whale of a time bundling bouquets of flowers.

All right, all right, I made it back from my many trips within a trip safe and sound. Thankfully, with such a great crew, the farm is all in one piece and not too much has changed. That said, there are more butterflies out and about pollinating everything they can get their proboscises into, and […]

Hello CSA members! Kiersten here, filling in for Garik while he enjoys the many adventures he is experiencing this week. For those of you I have not met at market, I’m originally from Wyoming and have been filling my time after college with a number of short-term life projects. I’m definitely loving the Farm gig, […]

Backyard Gardens CSA: Week 9 — July 31, 2014

Hello again! Have I told you that I’m a hiker? Well, I am, and in the hiking world there’s a short saying we have: “The Trail talks.” Lately it’s been calling to me, so this next week I’m using all my vacation to go adventuring around Oregon and California with friends and family. On my […]

Backyard Gardens CSA: Week 8 — July 24, 2014

This weekend is Chief Joseph Days, and thus there won’t be any Saturday Market. Instead of attending the rodeo, we’ll be heading down the Grande Ronde for a little 3-day weekend fun. Hopefully you can squeeze some activities in, too, around town and elsewhere in The County. In your bins you’ll find a big bunch […]

Wooowee, it is seriously hot. On fire hot. But that’s okay because you’ll be able to cool off considerably with some BYG goodies, such as taking some basil in order to whip up some fresh, and refreshing, lemonade. Or, better yet, take a look at the basil-lemon granita recipe below and just try to say no to […]

Backyard Gardens CSA: Week 5 — July 3, 2014

Ah, breathe in that warm air, cause summer finally decided to show! Hopefully you’ll be able to use some of this week’s produce for the impending Fourth of July festivities, wherever you are. New to your bin are kale and garlic scapes, Nature’s very own Krazy Straw. While it’s safe to say that everyone knows […]
