Rounding out July…for 8.1.2015

We’re planting for the fall. We’re harvesting the summer. 
The amazing transformation created by seed, soil, sunlight, and water.

And lots of sweat, of course. 
Pictured above is part of our booth at the Brandermill market last weekend. For those of you for whom that market is convenient, please do continue to tell your friends and neighbors about it. It’s a delightful market with all the staples: vegetables, fruit, meat, seafood, goat cheese, flowers, plants, pasta, bread, cookies… 
…yellow tomatoes. (We like this sweet little variety.) These yellow ones are available right now in our farm stand, along with our wonderful red varieties. AND – we are hooking up our new refrigerator case this afternoon so you can self-serve purchase our cold vegetables – and flower bouquets! We’ll share a photo as soon as it is up and running.

The humidity is forecasted to break tonight, so the next couple of days will be nicer to spend outside. Come visit us at the market or here at the farm to pick up your veggies. Your body will thank you. And your taste buds. 🙂

Meanwhile, the following is…Available for Market Share CSA members to choose from this week: Basil, Beets (without tops), Cantaloupe, Chard, Eggplant, Flower bouquets, Garlic, Green Beans, Kale (curly), Lettuce Mix (just a bit), Okra, Parsley, Peppers (jalapenos, sweet bell, carmen, lunchbox, padron…), Salad Mix (just a bit), Summer Squash, Tomatoes (slicers, cherries, and bulk options), Watermelon…and naturally leavened Hearth Baked Bread.

Recipe Suggestions: see these and others cataloged on our Recipe Page
Stuffed Eggplant is on our list to make this week, Spaghetti with Eggplant and Tomato Sauce is what we enjoyed last week (with pasta from Richmond’s Bombolini Pasta).
Sweet Peppers – the long, red peppers available recently is the Carmen pepper. It looks scary spicy but it is all sweet, we promise. It’s an Italian Bull’s horn variety and we love it. Add it to salad, or slice it and spread goat cheese on the slices.
Chard – We will keep saying it: We love love love our chard scrambled with eggs, as in this Swiss Chard Scramble recipe.
