On this episode of Growing with Letty & Lucy, we explore the topic of what to do when. you get your Farmstand! Where do you set it up for the best results? What do you need to have access to, if you want to actually have a lush, picture-worthy tower of abundant bounty. How much room does it take? Can I grow indoors (the answer is yes, but we are still looking for an expert indoor grower to be a guest on the show!)? All of the natural questions you may have are answered here… and we even give you all the details you’ll need for Tara’s delicious “Chimichurrrrr-ish” recipe (it’s below too, but we talk at length about it on the show!).
Letty & Lucy
*This adaptation of the herbaceous South American sauce. Chimichurri is a delicious way to use up lots of herbs. Use this as a guide, but have fun switching it up to your tastes and what you have on hand.
1 Cup rough chopped Herbs (make sure you are measuring the chopped herbs, not unchopped). This can be a mix of almost anything on your stand. Traditionally this is made heavily of parsley, a small amount oregano, maybe cilantro. You can do basil, garlic chives, thyme, mint is delicious.
1 Cup good extra virgin olive oil
1/2 Cup Vinegar. Traditionally, this would be red or white wine vinegar, but any lighter vinegar you have will work. Sherry, champagne, even rice wine.
3-4 garlic cloves
Salt & fresh pepper to taste
Extra credit: Jalapeño or red pepper flakes for spice. Dried oregano (2 tsp) if you didn’t have fresh to add. A little citrus, lemon or lime, either some zest or a small squeeze. If you love citrus, you can add more, just pull back a bit on the vinegar.
Throw everything in a blender or food processor & pulse to desired consistency. Traditionally chimichurri is on the chunky side. This can be accomplished by finely chopping everything by hand or by being careful to not over mix in a blender. I like it a little smoother, so I just use a blender. This can be stored in the fridge for at least a week. I like to live on the wild side and will keep it a few weeks. Not dead yet!
