Friends of the Farm-
Happy Friday and welcome back to another week of Live Oak Farm CSA...
It's Bastille Day. Celebrate with some fresh haricots (beans) and Tour de France coverage.
It's going to stay hot, so a refreshing farm Collins is in order for our featured recipe this week. When I smelled the aromatics of the Lemon Thyme during our harvest this week, I knew it needed a cocktail.
I also recommend this featured herb with roast or grilled fish, shrimp, or as an ingredient in a cold quinoa salad, or compliment to warm jasmine rice.
All of our Live Oak summer dinners - Dinner with Your Farmer Series are now LIVE in their ticketing. See below for flyers with link to more info and tickets. We've got some great partners this year and would love to share a meal with you and our community. Book your seat today.
Lastly, we welcome you to enjoy our weekly music playlist.
A fun track featured this week is Vulfpeck's, All That's Left of Me is You. I love the opening line "I'm just a piece of food, Left in the midday sun". Being out harvesting and tending to our summer veggies, I can relate to the feeling. Jain gives us Makeba, followed by Miriam Makeba's Saduva, the South African artist for whom the song is named in respect of. A healthy dose of reggae and Groove Armada's, At the River also have peak summer in mind for your weekend mood. Lastly, in honor of Dead & Co. bringing it home for a weekend of final run dates in San Francisco, the playlist goes out to a 1989 edition of Althea. Enjoy!
All our best from the farm,
Tom & William and Live Oak Farm team
