On the farm this week: This week on the farm we have been weeding like crazy. It does not matter how good a farmer or gardener you are, weeding is always a constant task on the farm. We are starting to see some good fruit set on our tomato plants and are getting excited for summer crops to come on strong.
This week you will see our 'CSA only table' near the cooler. please grab your basil from it before you leave :)

Simple Butter Lettuce Salad | Serves: 6 | Total Time: 10 mins
2 heads butter lettuce, roughly chopped
1 cup castelvetrano olives, pitted, cut in half
1/2 cup panko
2 tbsp butter (or olive oil)
1/4 cup chives, minced
2 oz manchego cheese, grated
freshly ground pepper
Apple Cider Vinaigrette
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar (unfiltered)
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp olive oil
In small bowl whisk together ingredients for the dressing, set aside.
In a small skillet set over medium heat, melt butter and add panko. Stir often until panko is golden brown in color.
Arrange butter lettuce on a large platter, shave manchego over lettuce and add olives, pepper, panko and chives. Drizzle with dressing right before serving and enjoy!
** If you dress this salad too soon, the panko will get soggy. We recommend saving the panko until after it is dressed and sprinkle it on right before serving.
We wash everything in your bag but we wash them in bulk so some things may need an extra rinse at home. Please bring your bag back next week so we can re-use them! thanks!
