Mint, Markets, and Cinco De Mayo

To say that April flew by is a huge understatement. I cannot believe I only managed to make three posting during the month of April. As I mentioned before the garden is keeping me very busy. Now that May has arrived however, you can expect a lot more postings centered around the farm fresh produce available from Inverbrook Farm. Market season has begun--the Kennett Square Farmers Market opens next Friday, May 14th and I have also "opened" here at the Farm. On Mondays and Wednesday 2-7PM through out the month of May you will be able to stop by the farm and purchase seasonal produce, eggs, Highland Farm sheep yogurt and cheese, Buck Run Farm burger, and frozen Inverbrook chickens. If you need directions to the farm please contact me through our website. Seasonal produce right now includes mint, lettuce, arugula, asparagus, rhubarb and spinach--tender and delicate tastes, a delicious way to start the season off right.

Although much of the month of April was spent in the garden, I did manage to sneak into Philly one weekend afternoon to celebrate GRID magazine's 1 year anniversary. Grid has an amazing blog complete with seasonal recipes from Food In Jars Blogger Marisa McClellan. Here are two posting--one on Asparagus and one on Rhubarb--perfect for this time of year.

Last but not least, happy Cinco de Mayo. What a perfect day to celebrate Mexican food culture. Get yourself an Inverbrook chicken and check out these Cinco De Mayo recipes.
