During these cold months fresh greens can be hard to find but fear not – our farm stand this week will feature an abundance of fresh greens including lettuce, baby kale, and savoy spinach.  Red, white, and blue potatoes may evoke a slight patriotic feeling among locavores and roast beautifully. Carrots, beets, and cucumbers are in abundance right now. To make a quick tzaki sauce simply dice half of a cucumber in Pequea Valley plain yogurt with finely minced garlic and let sit for a few hours. Pairs perfectly with Misty Knoll ground lamb!

After some well deserved upgrades to our kitchen, Greensgrow prepared foods return on Saturday with a refreshed product line! The beloved Moroccan carrot salad is back in addition to breads & a vegetable stock. On the farm stand we’ll be sampling some new concoctions including house made pimento cheese and truffled mushroom pate. Constructive feed back is encouraged.

Christine Patton, a.k.a Juice Girl will be out to demo and sell some sunshine in a glass. Mucho Bueno Taco truck will be on site from 11 am – 3 pm featuring a special farm stand themed taco. Tyler from Mycopolitan mushrooms is bringing Pom Pom’s & King Trumpets.

Check out the full list of what’s available this week.
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.” 
– Mary Seton Corboy, CIO, Greensgrow Philadelphia Project. You can check out the recent Philadelphia Inquirer article online here.
