Spring, is that you? (2015)

This spring we are incredibly thankful for the green house addition to the farm. It has given us the freedom to plant early, while sweet spring takes her time in blessing us with the warmer weather. The green house is filled with happy sprouts that are eager to be transplanted into the garden. With the gorgeous weather this week, we have officially broken ground, and begun planting. So far this week we have planted potatoes, swiss chard, kale, onions, and garlic with lots of time to get more plants in the ground before weeks end! Check out our CSA advertisement in the Kearsarge Shopper, you wouldn’t want to miss our best year yet!

How to Cook Komatsuna Greens

Komatsuna Greens are a favorite dish on the farm throughout the season. This recipe is very easy and quick to make!

  • One Bunch of Komatsuna Greens
  • 1 – 2 Tablespoons of Sesame Seeds
  • 2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil
  • Dash of Bragg’s Amino Acids (like soy sauce)

Chop all of the Komatsuna greens, stalks included. In a dry pan lightly brown/roast the sesame seeds on medium heat. Then, add the oil and Komatsuna greens, mix everything together, and saute for 3 to 5 minutes. Enjoy! (Caution: this is an Asian Green so if you’re about to cook with Olive oil and Garlic be aware that those flavors do not get along)
