From CSA member (and newlywed!) Amy:
Here’s that fennel recipe I was talking about, it’s in Asparagus to Zucchini – very yummy and easy.    

Baked Fennel
 
3 large fennel bulbs
vegetable oil
3 large garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon vegetable seasoning
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 to 1 1/2 cups chicken broth or vegetable stock
2 tablespoons bread crumbs
 
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Cut tops off fennel bulbs and cut each bulb in half.  Lay fennel, cut side down, on an oiled 8-inch baking pan.  Sprinkle with garlic, oregano, basil, vegetable seasoning, and pepper.  Pour 1 cup of broth in pan and cover tightly with foil; bake 15 minutes.  Turn fennel over and bake, covered, 15 minutes longer.  Add more broth if necessary to keep fennel from burining to bottom of pan.  Uncover pan and sprinkle with bread crumbs.  Turn oven up to 450 and bake until crumbs brown. Six servings.

Fresh vs. Dry Herbs:
Use more of an herb when fresh and less when dry. For Thyme, for example, 1 Tablespoon fresh = ¾ teaspoon dry. Herbs can be stored in the fridge to use fresh, or can be hung in a cool dry place to dry.  Once dry, hold inside a bag and crumble leaves off of stems. Then pour into a jar.

Farm News:
After a very dry spring we are feeling thankful for the rain this past weekend – our farm received a little over two inches! I 6-8-09 week 1 019went to North Carolina for a week (for a nature play training for my day job) and when I returned the plants were noticeably larger. It is an exciting time of year with the plants establishing themselves and starting to show it. The weeds are also staking a claim, and while I was in NC my dad and mom, Darwin and Carol, put in many a hour hand weeding. Once the plants get a little bigger we will mulch, mulch, mulch. The straw helps retain moisture and keep the weeds down.
