Hi faithful blog readers and CSA members! This week I am going to make the newsletter very short.. my apologies.. long day harvesting, long day tomorrow harvesting, 11 pm and 5 week old baby that doesn't sleep for very long require me to do so!
The main events going on at the farm currently are weeding like maniacs, planting like maniacs and harvesting like... yep you guessed it.. maniacs! This is the time of the season when the produce just oozes out of the field by the truckload and we have to struggle just to keep up with the picking, especially with crops like beans and squash that require you to constantly harvest.
Also we are looking forward to our first peach harvest this year! Three years ago we planted 43 peach trees at our farm. Last year the 43 trees produced 6 peaches! This year there are too many to count. They are not big but they look beautiful and we guarantee they will be luscious!
Also later this season we will have our annual farm tour and potluck. Most likely the potluck will happen in September. We will give you all plenty of time to mark your calendars!
Harvest This Week Includes:
Raspberries (we hope enough for everyone! We will harvest Wed am)
Early Tomatoes! (Glacier and Oregon Spring)
Sweet Red Torpedo Onions
Yellow Zephyr Squash
Italian Flat Beans (also know as Romano Beans)
Green Slicing Cucumber
Since the new items this week are all things you are accustomed to I am going to skip the recipe section and instead direct you to a great recipe source and that is allrecipes.com When you get to the website simply type in the vegetable you want to find recipes for and hundreds will come up! Sorry I promise more recipes next week!
