Many of you have heard that we hired a farmer and have begun the (huge) task of giving our once-forgotten garden on the hill a beautiful face-lift, complete with a new name: Frog Creek Farms.
With many hours of hard, physical work, the team has tilled, amended, weeded, planted and tended to several areas that are growing thick, rich, deep-green kale, lettuces, tomatoes, potatoes, cabbage, arugula, spinach (just to name a few). We have also begun planting flowers, lavender and ferns. We will be planting radishes and broccoli and cauliflower … all amazingly nutrient-rich food to serve YOU in our dining room! Needless to say, there’s a lot of good things growing out here in West Marin!
My favorite way to eat our lettuces is with tomatoes and maybe a little arugula and spinach … AND with a small drizzle of our delicious Herbed Buttermilk Dressing on it! Below is the recipe so you can make the dressing at home to enjoy with your family!
