According to the radar estimates, we received just over an inch of much needed rain. I will let you know in tomorrow’s blog post how much water fell into our two rain gauges at the farm. The sun looks like it will come out this afternoon and we will have a couple of very pleasant days before more warm, humid weather makes another return towards the weekend.
What we are having today:
Young and tender green beans by the bag and peck. Ask about larger quantities!
Freshly pulled Crunchy Crimson red radishes that are sweet and mildly spicy.
Garlic scapes, which can be chopped up and used in any dish where you want a mild garlic flavor or roasted with just a little olive oil and salt to taste. (See my daughter Rebekah’s YouTube video: https://youtu.be/M-18duA9zBo)
Freshly dug RedGold potatoes (red skin with yellow flesh) and Red Norland potatoes (red skin with white flesh). (See my daughter Bernadette’s blog post)
Freshly pulled sweet and mild Newaygo Newaygo sweet onions with tops.
Balaton sweet/tart cherries: very limited supply
And you may find some broccoli, cherry tomatoes, and zucchini. These are coming along slowly so some days we won’t have any.
Fruit trees and shrubs, perennial and annual flowers and ornamental plants and many kinds of herbs!
Also, we have lots dried gourds for crafting and making birdhouses! Browse through our pile near the side of the greenhouse!
Take note that we now accept all the following:
