Some awesome links to go with this weeks basket.

Last week I included some tomatillos in some of the baskets. This very distant tomato relative is a staple in Mexican cooking, it puts the verde in salsa verde. At the farm we use it fresh chopped with cucumbers and onion in this recipe:

Or in enchiladas verdes

They’re good at all stages of development and keep very well. The greener ones have a more tart flavor and the riper yellowish ones tend to be a little sweeter. I usually use a mix of green and yellow for a balanced flavor, but they are fun to experiment with so use whichever you like!

I also got this link from a customer, a perfect happy soup for a chilly day!

I haven’t had a chance to try it but I’m intrigued. Thought some of you may be interested as well.

Angry Chicken’s homemade deodorant recipe. has a variation that is a little firmer and can be used as a stick.




I had a little free time today so I went out to the hives and just sat and watched them. Interesting little creatures!

I took over 200 images but only a dozen were any good, they move so fast! The one above one is my favorite.
