    starters the Napa Cabbage you ll get can easily be chopped up for a fast coleslaw This Napa Cabbage Picnic Salad is great for a large group and also makes use of the radishes and cilantro in this week s share And don t rule out it out when you re thinking of what to grill because Napa Cabbage is hearty enough to stand up well especially in this twist that flavors grilled cabbage with a Chinese mustard glaze and scallions If you re wanting to take a salad along on an outdoor adventure this NPR piece about a mountaintop picnic takes note of the truth that while other lettuces get soggy while they sit in dressing kale leaves tend to maintain shape and crispness for quite awhile Check out their recipe for a Kale Peace Corn and Feta Salad to make for your next post hike feast Also this Broccoli Matchsticks and Kale Salad recipe offers another kale salad that shows a great way to chop up and use the stalks of the broccoli arriving this week once you re done with the crowns And lastly having become quite a radish fan after working at Green Gate I m happy to have more bunches of these colorful tasty treats in our shares this week This beautiful Radish salad with apple avocado egg shaved Manchego is another perfect picnic dish And both this Grilled Radish recipe and this Grilled Radishes with Herbed Mayo show how easily they can be added to any evening of barbequing However you make the most of the glory of springtime in Texas I hope enjoying some farm fresh food is a part of the celebration Workshare Emily About Green Gate Farms View all posts by Green Gate Farms Garlic Scape Tarragon Pesto Edible Spring Flower

  • Growing Evan | Green Gate Farms
    asked our farm manager at the time Mary Hillemeier if we should hire him her response was You better He s the real thing That realness had come from starting his own farm in Portland as well as publishing a quirky yet heartfelt zine whose title Running with Pitchforks had given me some hesitation Run Evan did from day one Whatever pitchfork we gave him planting harvesting sales web design managing staff he grabbed it with his signature enthusiasm And when we gave him manure he always chuckled and gladly turned it into compost When farming beats me down too frequently I m afraid to admit I can always count on Evan to lighten up my day Maybe it s his Japanese genes but he possesses a Zen like quality His mantra It s all good somehow seems believable and I m grateful to have spent so many days long hard days at his side Punctual reliable professional Evan s qualities have been as dependable as his green pickup truck rolling through the gate each morning But what really has set him apart is his taking ownership of this place In a very real sense Evan does own a piece of this farm he s not only shaped its fields but the contours of its character too He s done more than his part to make sure the gates of Green Gate stay open As he helped grow our farm Evan grew in new ways himself Getting out in front is never easy yet he s left his bootprints everywhere Texas Young Farmers Coalition Moontower Food Coop Texas Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association Like those proverbial seeds cast far and wide former Green Gate employees have put down roots in farming communities all across the country Will Summers in New

  • Growing Farmer Jamie | Green Gate Farms
    own farm with her partner Jacob Among the many crops that farmers raise growing new farmers is the most rewarding Yet it s never easy watching them leave the land they tilled and the community they helped cultivate We ve had other employees who ve become farmers but Jamie has been here so long and given so much that she feels like family Jamie was here in good times and bad She s farmed in droughts and floods worked with bumper crops and busts Those experiences have prepared her well for the challenges that come with growing food whether in hot Texas or cold Wisconsin But perhaps the most valuable skill she takes with her is working well with people Over the years she has dealt with every customer situation imaginable and yet has always kept showing her beautiful smile Keeping people happy on the farm or off can be the hardest work of all One of my favorite photos from our farm is a group of volunteers planting garlic Our first farm manager Katherine who is now a farmer in Alabama is demonstrating how to space and bury the cloves Jamie is there along the row with them fourth from the left and appears to be paying close attention Her attention to details her gift of organizing and analyzing which she honed during her years working for HUD has helped thin the chaos that used to thrive at Green Gate along with the pig weed and the nut grass All the documents and systems she has created will make life easier for future farm managers here As for Erin and me life at Green Gate already seems harder without Jamie We have a great replacement in Katie Tritsch but she s been here only two weeks and Jamie is
