March 23, 2015 Flowers and Favas

Gardeners are much worse than fishermen- their arms stretch much wider when they are describing the height of their broad beans than when the fishermen are describing the length of a pike, and their tongues run away with them in a dreadful way, as though they were drunk with the scent of the flowers they were describing.
-Beverley Nichols
Dear Friends,
Nope, not a photo of our flowers, although our two pet goats give us as much pleasure as our spring flowers do.  We take them on walks with the Corgi’s and they’re enjoying the last of the spring grasses before they turn brown.
This week I’d like to encourage you to order “Fava” beans from the Green Store to add to your deliveries.  These were grown by the son of one of our shareholders and I think it’s safe to say we all would like to think there is a future for anyone willing to take on the task of being a food producer for next  generations.  Fava beans are delicious, nutritious, and large in the pod making for easy shelling.  They’re good raw in salads, steamed or in soups and stews..
Have you someone you’d like to make happy with a bouquet of flowers?  We have extra right now and you can add to your regular delivery and give them yourself or we can deliver them for you (if in our normal areas), note included,  for $25.00 (delivery charge included).  ‘Make someone’s day’.

May you enjoy and utilize all your items for this week.  If you need suggestions for use or recipes on any of your items, feel free to email me and I’ll help.


Please note that some substitutions may apply from time to time.
