On the farm this week: These cooler temps and RAIN have been absolutely amazing! For the first time this summer our pump has not had to run 24hours a day to keep everything alive. As we move closer to the fall season we are composting some long season crops we planted back in march and will soon replace them with long season crops that love the cold and will feed us through the winter.
Tomatoes and Basil can not go in the cooler so they are on the CSA ONLY TABLE to the left of the walk-in cooler.

Meanwhile, whisk together the mayonnaise, oil, mustard, lemon zest and juice. Season with the salt and a generous grind of pepper. Set aside.
Drain the cooked potatoes, then return to the pan and crush gently with a masher while still warm, to break them open and create craggy edges. Stir in the mustard mayo, spring onions and herbs. Transfer to a platter and serve.
