Friends of the Farm-
A delivery of fresh vegetables and ripe strawberries is a great way to kick-off your holiday weekend! Add in some cooking, music, and relaxation and you're well on your way.
We're also excited to debut our newest SPRING seasonal herbal tea blend in this week's delivery.
Stinging Nettles, Rose Petal, Calendula, Mint, & Borage makes this season's mix.
To celebrate the Memorial Day holiday and unofficial start to summer we suggest pulling out the grill for your radicchio and fava beans in this week's featured recipe.
Don't forget to tune into this week's edition of our CSA music playlist. Link to our Spotify playlist is attached below to join the groove.
This week, we return with a big dose of African rhythms featuring music from icons such as Hugh Masekela, Tony Allen, & Africa 70. The heavy-funk track Allah Wakbarr by Ofo the Black Company is a forever favorite and not to miss. I highly recommend the compilation album, Nigeria 70 - Funky Lagos the track is taken from for a deeper dive into this genre. Also this week, Duran Duran's, A View to a Kill the title track from the 1985 James Bond film of the same name which stars a very memorable Grace Jones and Christopher Walken as the evil Max Zorin. (Little known fact, Walken was only offered the role after it was first turned down by none other than David Bowie).
Lots of deep cuts & new music favorites to enjoy all weekend long and usher in the sounds of summer! (Summers Gonna Be My Girl by The Go will help). Enjoy!
All our best from the farm,
Tom & William and Live Oak Farm team
