Fresh Take Farm News 
Dear <<First Name>>,
What a beautiful couple of days to end the month of April. We have been making the most of the lovely weather, working long days getting crops planted, fertilized and watered so we can enjoy them sooner! Look for bunched radishes -first of the year- on the market table this week, and only if you arrive early because they will be popular! We are also featuring beautiful ramps (wild leeks, pictured above) and "kalini", our specialty kale florets that are only available this time of year.
Beans, cukes, squash, cauliflower, assorted greens and plenty more went in the ground this week, and we can't wait to share the bounty! Speaking of sharing the bounty, I would like to remind everyone that our Summer CSA share is still available for sign-up. CSA is an ideal way to support local farmers and get a great deal on fresh, delicious produce all summer long. Sign up with this link: http://csa.farmigo.com/join/freshtakefarm/summer2016 and check out our website for more details.
Here are some of the sights from this week at the farm.
Top left- "kalini" are the delicious, tender flowering tops of kale plants and they are only available for a limited time! Top right- some fresh greens for mesclun mix growing in our hoophouse. Bottom left- ramps, also called wild leeks, SO delicious; come ask us about them at the farmers market. Bottom right- happy cows graze on rolling pasture hills at the Liebig dairy farm (also headquarters of Fresh Take Farm)
Here's a very simple recipe from our website that I think everybody will enjoy. Try this one at home:

Creamy Spinach Dip

This is an easy dip recipe which beats anything from the store because it's made using fresh, delicious spinach. Perfect for dipping raw vegetables or chips. Best if made a day ahead.

10 oz (2 bags) Fresh Take Farm spinach
1 pouch Knorr vegetable soup mix
16 oz sour cream
1 cup mayonnaise
1 small kohlrabi, diced (optional but adds a great crunch)
3 scallions, sliced thin (optional)
Steam the spinach for 7-10 minutes and remove from heat. Next, squeeze the cooked spinach between your hands or in a cheesecloth several times to remove excess water; work in batches for a better result (important step). Once the spinach has cooled, combine all the ingredients and let sit for at least an hour. Serve and enjoy!

Swing by our market stand to try this delicious dip tomorrow, but of course its always best when you make your own! Hope spring is treating you well, that the wind is at your back and the sun shines warmly on your face, and that we will see you very soon!
Best,

Reeves
