   Spring CSA season is half over! We hope that you are enjoying your early season greens. Aren't we lucky to live in a climate where we can enjoy fresh vegetables year round!?
   Summer CSA is quickly approaching and many of you have already registered; thank you! If you are craving broccoli, lettuces, tomatoes, squashes, beans and more of your favorite greens, you can register for summer season on the website here. Pick up options will be the same: Tuesday afternoons at John's Creek Yoga, Wednesday mornings or afternoons at the farm, and Saturday mornings at the farm. 
   You may notice a few more holes in the pac choi than last week. As the heat increases, so does the bug pressure on the crops. We do our best to mitigate pest issues by timing our plantings to avoid peak pest activity, by planning for several plantings  of a crop, and by maintaining soil and plant health to increase a plant's own natural defense mechanisms. Nevertheless, a healthy ecosystem must have insects, sometimes even the ones we consider "bad." As organic growers, we do our best to strike the balance.

Spicy Salad Mix

This tasty combination of asian mustards, tatsoi, and tokyo bekana cabbage tastes delicious raw or cooked. Judy enjoys hers raw, served with sesame seeds and a dressing of equal parts asian fish sauce, soy sauce and rice vinegar. Linda adds dried fruit and shaved hard cheese, tossed in an olive oil dressing. And Sandy finely chops hers, sauteing it with onions, garlic, red pepper flakes, and fire roasted tomatoes; then she stirs the cooked mixture into pre-cooked lentils or quinoa and adds spicy ground turkey.
