It’s a May Day Celebration and Solomon had it right:
For see, the winter is past, the rains are over and gone. (some places)
12 The flowers appear on the earth, the time of pruning
the vines has come, (and planting the Kale, first harvest of spring greens, seedlings are planted and maple leaves are bursting green) and the song of the turtledove is heard in our land.(we need more turtle doves) 13 The fig tree puts forth its figs, (a touch to the south) and the vines, in bloom, give forth fragrance.
Arise, my friend(s), my beautiful one(s),
Come join us for this celebration of life; this miracle that just keeps happening with such unabashed exuberance (go and do likewise!).

June 13th through October 24, 2017, is Summer Session CSA
Terrie and Mimi will be in the Cascading Kitchen at Jubilee Farm on Tuesdays and Fridays of this upcoming summer CSA session.
Summer session recipes are updated here each week….look for the tab on top that says CSA Recipes. They are sorted by week on the left hand column and by vegetable type in the little red search bar at the top of each page or in the veggie chart on the CSA Recipe page. Find recipes that fit what’s coming out of the fields.
On Saturdays throughout the session please welcome the wonderful addition of Aruna and Aparna to the Cascading Kitchen teaching us how to make authentic Indian dishes. They make quite a team!
We are scheduling our classes in food preservation and scratch cooking as folks express interest.Take a look at the offerings and send us a note. We’ll see what we can put together to meet your needs.
On sporadic occasion we will send updates, tips and encouragement so sign up for the newsletter if you’d like to connect yourself to such meanderings.
Summer In A Jar teaches safe food preservation methods: canning, drying, freezing, quick pickling and fermentation. Additionally, we offer an invitation to remember, or taste for the first time, honest, fresh, flavorful food in season. We teach how to put up the current seasonal crop so it’s available the next winter and how to weave the bounty of your pantry into workable daily menus. There’s a rhythm to it that looks different in every home but the invisible thread that holds it all together is an affirmation to choose healthy, real food, sustainably grown to nourish our families. We don’t get there all at once, but one step at a time. We’ve adopted the word below to emphasize our desire to walk graciously and incrementally toward deeper, richer, healthier living.
…just a little– bit– better. A little more flavor, a little less processed, a little more nutrition, a few less empty calories, a few more meals with family and friends and a bit less fast food on the run. Come and join us.
We’re all waiting for you!
These kids are fast learners; they keep us on our toes. They will definitely be leaders in changing the way America eats.
