Welcome Jad Wilder Quinton

7 Aug

I am going to make this letter brief this week so I have some time to get the farm house ready for the newest member of our household.  Lindsey and Rafe just welcomed Jad Wilder Quinton on Friday at 2:41 a.m.  He was 5lbs. 14oz.  and 18 1/2 inches long. He has a head of dark hair and great color in his face.  Jad and Lindsey are doing great; happy and healthy.  The whole family is enjoying the new arrival.  I’ll see if I can get a picture up at some point soon.

I felt honored to attend the birth of Jad and am so thankful to our families, crew, friends, and most of all Seth, for helping me to find the space in my schedule to be there with Rafe and Lindsey.  It never ceases to amaze me the support that is out there and seems to come through for us.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Thanks so much for giving us the first look at our grandson. Hope to be there to meet him in person in a couple of weeks. What a beautiful baby boy!

    It’s another bountiful, colorful, and delicious share from our Weathervane folks – thank you, thank you! We couldn’t ask for more nutritious and various foods each week. I’m enjoying new culinary risks with the fantastic asian greens. I often go to Simply Recipes for ideas and always to Golden Earthworm Organic Farm website for storage recommendations which helps to preserve the greens all week until the next installment. My ritual has become to unpack all the “goods” onto the kitchen table to “ohh and ahh” with anyone I can get to join. This past weekend we had family visiting so I started a round of “can you name this vegetable?” – no surprise they got stumped on the yakuna savoy and napa cabbage (I would have too without the past few weeks of crash-course-in-asian-greens from our shares). I’m continuing to make big stif-frys with a variety of greens, sesame/peanut oil, fresh ginger, onion, garlic, tamari, red pepper flakes, rice wine vinegar and some protein. Yum! And, welcome Jad to the farming family…

    This is a recipe found by Rita.

    We just had this “crab cake” dish for the second time this summer and it is just the greatest. No seafood is involved, the starring ingredient is shredded zucchini. The recipe is called “I can’t believe it’s not crab crab cakes” and here’s the link to it:

    I thought maybe some other CSA folks would enjoy trying it too.
