Friends of the Farm-

Citrus and winter shades of greens are the theme with this week's CSA produce box. Our first succession of Brussels Sprouts are a welcome treat along with this week's edition of our proprietary greens mix. Representing a "farm field blend" if you will, this is a mix of more than six delicate greens. Lastly, it's only fitting that for the last week of January we feature a new baby cabbage called - January Cabbage. Just in time!

It's happy hour time with Mandarin Pomelo Paloma cocktails featured as this week's recipe! This is our take on a classic recipe that leans heavily on fresh squeezed citrus in place of traditional grapefruit or use of grapefruit sodas. In doing so Pomelos take center stage and the cocktail is instead sweetened with the compliments of the Mandarin juice and some Agave Nectar or simple syrup.

This week's delivery is our last in our current 10-week Winter quarter of Umbel Roots CSA. We thank you for your participation in this Winter Season and sincerely appreciate your support of our growing farm.
It doesn't have to end! Sent this week was an email invitation to join our upcoming Spring season. Umbel Roots CSA - SPRING quarter will run 10-weeks, starting February 11th through April 29.

Great for happy hour and cooking dinner with your Mandarin Pomelo Paloma in hand and Umbel Roots CSA veggies on the stove. It's hard to pick favorites, but if there are any tracks not to miss the Stanley Brother's Still Trying to Get to Little Rock, this version of Toots & the Maytals Funky Kingston (ft. Bootsy Collins), and The Collins Kids The Lonesome Road are great places to start.
