Farm to Table: It’s summer!

“Farm to Table”…..This might become a reoccurring Blog subject; seeing as I now live on beautiful Vashon Island ~ where many small farms operate and flourish. Fresh, organic goods are available left and right here…so it only feels natural to capture it and take you along for the ride.

First up is: Hogsback Farm! A really cute farm, exploding with everything green imaginable. It is summer folks (finally)!

This means: Green salad mixes, Kale, Mustard Greens, Cabbage, Broccoli, Leeks, etc! Hogsback also had some home starters like: Basil.

These are called “Farm Stands” or “U Pick”…and it’s pretty amazing (and addicting). You roll up, grab your goods and drop your cash in the money box. Although most of the Farm Stands cash boxes are securely nailed down now…it’s still an ‘on your honor’ system which makes me say, “aww” ~ and smile. Simple livin’ friends!

It’s nice to be able to support local farmers. While meeting some of these locals, I noticed how hard they work ~ and how passionate they are. (Even after one day of volunteering on a farm, this is apparent!) Hit up your local Farmer’s Market!

This time around @ Hogsback, I grabbed some Kale. My next posting will be about the dish I made using this yummy Kale! Stay tuned…
