New Recipes

Hello everyone!

We hope that you are continuing to enjoy your veggies! We wanted to remind you all that we also have raspberries for sale if you would like to buy those separately from your regular baskets.

We also wanted to share these two great recipes that we recently found in a magazine! Enjoy!

August Photo Update

We would like to reassure everyone that our garden is doing fantastic! New vegetables are coming, while some are ending.  Others are also being replanted for a second harvest at the end of the season.  We hope that you have been enjoying your baskets so far, and that you have found happiness and health among its contents.  We are so glad to be doing what we do, and we're overjoyed that you are a part of it all!

One last thing before the photos---if you are finding it difficult to use your summer squash, look back at the blog post titled Z is for Zucchini.  There are a few different recipes that you can use on there.

Now for the photos!

A little blurry, but you can see that you will now start having tomatoes to go with all that basil!

It's a jungle out there! Corn is taller than us and the summer squash has a mind of its own.

The pumpkins planted in our hay bale experiment are coming along nicely.

Winter squash.

Baby cabbages are a-coming!

Scarlet runner beans are a beautiful addition this year.

Joyful July

Hello everyone!
We thought you might want another peak at how our garden is doing.  Everything seems to be growing quickly at this point, and we are simply amazed at the bounty.  Also, some new vegetables will be coming your way.  The summer squash is starting to bear fruit, the tomatoes are coming, and  the basil looks tremendous!

Also, here is a great recipe to use for the Kohlrabi that you are all getting these days!

Kohlrabi Slaw
In the food processor, chop 2-3 heads of Kohlrabi.  Then do the same with a carrot or two. Put this in a bowl and add mayonnaise to your liking.  Add salt and a generous amount of pepper.  Last, add apple cider vinegar to taste (maybe 3-4 T).

You could also just take any normal Cole Slaw recipe and change out the cabbage for Kohlrabi!

And here are some photos!

Plethora of Swiss Chard

same with all this kale!

Both green and purple basil


Cloudy day yet everything still looks vibrantly green

pole bean flowers are beautiful!
