We still have lots of beautiful butter leaf lettuce and peppery arugula to cool you down in the summer heat with a refreshing salad. The honeybees have been healthy and have made plenty of extra honey to share, so come and get it!
Organic Heirloom Tomatoes– full crop (over 30 varieties) within two weeks and some limited availability this weekend 7/20-7/21
Basil– within two weeks (Genovese, Lime, Royal Thai)
Tomatillos– within two weeks (Green and Purple)
Peppers – within two weeks (multiple varieties sweet to spicy)
Crop Focus: Cucumbers
Our latest crops to ripen are sassy pickling and delicious Marketmore cucumbers. Marketmore cucumbers are the perfect snack for hot weather with a simple sprinkle of pink salt or you can dress them up a bit by adding a squeeze of lemon and a drop of hot sauce as well.
Our pickling cucumbers are also ripe and ready to harvest. We are planning on making several batches of pickles this season: dill, semi-dill, bread-n-butter, sweet, hot-n-spicy, and all variations in between. We will be preserving our pickles via the pressure canning method so as to have some shelf-stable jars for winter. We will also do several small batches of refrigerator pickles that we will consume regularly with lunches and dinners over the summer and throughout the fall.
So I ask you my dear readers:
1. What is your favorite type of pickle or types of pickles?
2. What are your favorite recipes for preparing pickles?
3. How do you serve your fresh homemade pickles or what do your serve fresh homemade pickles with?
