Looking Like Summer In The Boxes

Now this is what I would call a box full of summer!  Tomatoes, corn, peppers, onions, tomatoes....yum!
The weather has changes things on the farm.  It is nice to be able to be back in the fields.  The plants are soaking in all that wonderful sunshine and the weeds are growing just as fast.  They hope to have more tomatoes ripen with all this great sunshine.  The corn and green beans are soaking it all in also.

Recipe Of The Week: Uses Of Garlic

 Uses Of Garlic
Garlic adds flavor to lots of dishes.   Real garlic lovers get a clove of garlic to saute before they even know what is for dinner!
For delicious baked potatoes (especially early new red potatoes was, and then cube the potatoes into 1 inch cubes.  Place them in a shallow pan, drizzle with some olive oil, and sprinkle with some fresh thyme, rosemary, and sage over all.  Also add several cloves of chopped garlic.  Cover and bake for 1 hour.  Uncover and bake until soft and slightly crisp.  Top with some Himalayan Pink slat and cheese.

The Catch Up Blog

We were out of town last week and missed the CSA drop off.  So I emailed Rue and he sent me a copy of the newsletter to read so I would be all caught up.

Anna has he sweetest way with words.  She just writes in such a calming manner.  Anna explained that because of the cool and wet we have been having vegetables like, beets, carrots, cabbage, and cucumbers haven't done well and they don't want to pack them in our boxes.  But  not to worry the second planting is looking good. Tomatoes are ripening very slowly because they need the heat of the sun.

Last week was the last week of the Spring Share.  Those eight weeks went by really fast.  So that means this week is the first week of the summer share.

So welcome to the fist box of the summer share.  Anna says sweet corn, eggplants, and cucumbers are looking good and they might be finding their way into our boxes next week.
She must love egg plant because she sent an extra recipe.
Please keep in mind that with all the horrible rainstorms that we have been having which results in lack of sunshine which in turn means no heat for the growing process things have really slowed down.  So pray for sunshine in the coming weeks.
