Rainbow Salad Mix

In our CSA shares the last few weeks, we have been including a spicy salad mix with different baby mustard greens. This past week, we mixed our spicy salad mix with our lettuce mix and ended up with a beautiful salad we like to call Rainbow Salad Mix.  It has six types of greens and is, if we say so ourselves, delicious! :)

 It includes:
 green salad bowl lettuce,
 red salad bowl lettuce,
 baby arugula,
 ruby streaks mizuna,
 green mizuna,
 and baby toraziroh mustard greens.

The Fire at Sattva Place

 A few weeks after our last visit to Sattva place, there was a terrible tragedy. The large barn in the middle of the property burned down. The origin of the fire could have been one of many things and sadly some young turkeys were taken in the flames. Fortunately, Scott's farming practices incorporate the barn minimally. He stored his feed and hay in there, as well as his major farm equipment, but the cows and other livestock remain on other parts of the property day and night.  

He invited us over for dinner one evening and we were able to take some photos. Here are some before and after shots as well as some taken inside. It is sad to lose such a large structure (and all of its contents) but Scott has taken it in stride, finding solutions and remaining optimistic.
