My friend Joan is a member of Bluebird Gardens CSA out of Fergus Falls, MN — about 60 miles away from Moorhead, where Joan currently resides. It was the closest to local she and her partner, Darryl, could find. Joan was here visiting a few weeks ago and generously brought along most of the week’s CSA share, which she made into a beautiful salad for our lunch at Stone’s Throw Farm.

Then I repaid her by putting her to work in the field. Even though Joan spent an hour helping me set up a bunch of drip irrigation, I made her water everything by hand with a watering can. Just kidding. Seriously, though, thanks for braving the sun and heat, Joan. We could sure use a little of both right now instead of never-ending rain!

Joan hadn’t tasted kale that she could recall, so we snagged a few leaves of Stone’s Throw Farm kale and collard greens and sautéed them in olive oil and garlic for dinner one evening. I’m happy to report that she seemed to enjoy both the kale and collards, but especially the kale. Our farm members will receive kale in their first share delivery on June 21, so I hope they like it as well as Joan did!
