Hello community. Last week on October 3rd we welcomed our new baby into the world. It was a bit earlier than we had anticipated and we are definitely still catching up. Excuse my shorter than usual blog posts as I scrounge for some sleep in my free time. Baby Seth Givens and momma are doing great and hibernating at home on the farm. Special thanks to the crew who is making it all happen in my absence.
We are also missing a usual suspect from our CSA box this week. In order to get carrots into the boxes on a weekly basis we are planting them every six weeks and things need to roll right on schedule. Seen as farming is anything but on schedule, the carrots haven’t had a chance to size up. This week we are checking out the rainbow carrot variety picked right here in SB County. Lots of love and veggies from the Givens family.

Week of October 9th

We always have recipes to share and inspire, but this week got a little too crazy so this post is a short one. It will probably be the only blog without recipes so I’m hoping you will get on social media and share what you are eating to help inspire all around you.
Heirloom tomatoes, spinach, salad mix and green beans come from our friends at Sunrise Organic Farm. The family that runs this farm started off on John Givens Farm and has branched out to pave their own path and make even more vegetables available to our community to eat. We love supporting him because they represent the quality and taste we’ve grown to love over the years and they just feel like family.
