Where Do Tomatoes Come From?
Some of the tomatoes you’ll be eating this year will have started in our new germination box. Katelyn and Dave made this from various stuff that had been hanging around. It holds several trays of starts, has a little thermometer, a light in the back to provide some heat, and a door that you can’t see here-pretty fancy!

It will be a huge help getting a little extra heat on our tender young seeds as they become plants. We’re beginning the season long journey of growing tomatoes! You can see the little starts popping up. These are some of the tomato varieties that we will be grafting when they get larger. They will need time to heal after grafting so they get started first this season. 
Cheese News
This year at the Pennsylvania Farm Show the first ever PA Cheese Competition was held. Our local cheese artisans won big! Member and customer favorites The Farm at Doe Run won Best in Show for Seven Sisters (the cheese recently included in the Winter CSA Cheese share) and we’re very excited for them! Local favorites Birchrun Hills and Yellow Springs Farm (also Cheese Share artisans) brought home ribbons and medals for their top cheeses as well. We’re so lucky to have such amazing, award winning cheeses right in our backyard and we couldn’t be more proud to have them on our farmstand and in our CSA! A member of the team from The Farm at Doe Run will be at the farmstand this Saturday, January 24th sampling cheeses, talking tasting notes, and discussing pairings so you can meet their award winning cheese!
This Saturday Mucho Bueno Food Truck will be at the Farmstand! January 24 • 11am-3pm. Come out for Tacos and BBQ Sandwiches, and a Greensgrow CSA Special Taco; Crimini Mushrooms, Goat Cheese & Greensgrow Grown Arugula. We will also be joined by Reanimator Coffee, Girl Scouts of America, Mycopolitan Mushroom, & Doe Run Farms sampling a few of their special cheeses. 

This week we are most excited about the high tunnel grown Long Dutch Cucumbers from Weaver Farm. They’ll make an excellent tzatziki with Pequa Valley yogurt & shallots. Also very special thins week: Three Springs Fruit Farm was gracious enough to press a custom order of cider for us. If you can make it home without drinking all of it try braising fresh tofu or pork chops in it with some sweet Lutz beets. 

Try some Tuscarora Organics baby fennel and shallots – perfect for roasting with root veggies or wild game. Leeks, Brussels Sprouts on the stalk, and a wide range of spuds (both sweet and savory) are great this time of the year.

Greensgrow Debut: Country Time pork roll! It’s thick cut, slightly sweet, and renders beautiful fat. The only dilemma the omnivores among you will face is how many packs to buy.

Milkshake Piggy Banks!

Proceeds Support the Greensgrow Animal Family
We’re very excited to offer this little ornamental piggy bank. They’re in the greenhouse on the farm! Get a keepsake ornament of your favorite neighborhood porky pal and help feed the Greensgrow Animal menagerie.

Kensington Homestead Book Signing

March 21 • 11am-2pm
Nic Esposito will be at the farm to sign books, meet & greet the Greensgrow community. We have the book in stock now in the greenhouse.
Mary wrote one of the blurbs for the book cover; 
“In Kensington Homestead Nic Esposito recounts the daily grind, calamity, futility, and insanity of his life as an urban farmer/homesteader. Whether he’s tracking imaginary voodoo chicken thieves, finding himself in the middle of a real Halloween shootout, or finding inner peace as he harvests his first jars of honey, Esposito delivers in poignant prose and a journalist’s detail his stories of seeking an antidote to the blandness of modern urban life. If you think you know city life, think again.”

Guest Blog: Vegan Creamed Corn & Stuffed Cabbage
Indeed, it’s hard to improve upon such a time-honored classic, so we simply adapted it to what’s available in your recent CSA pick-ups. In place of tomato sauce, we used last pick-up’s Winter Sun Farms frozen corn to make a creamy corn sauce. Normally we’re averse to frozen food, but this corn—was harvested locally in August at it’s apex of ripeness and flavor. Read more
