Have you heard the music today? I love it! Each little drop of moisture slides through the air to hit its tuning fork, be it a leaf, metal roof or a rivulet coursing down the road. There is a song, I just don’t hear the complete melody but my heart senses it. What a concert and it is free to the good folks and to those that don’t eat their vegetables!
This has been one challenging summer – if you haven’t caught on yet, come work with us to get a clearer perspective. There must be at least 4 different kinds of insects having lunch on OUR produce as well as a couple 4-footers that live underground and more that scamper across the farm with us. I wonder what the Garden of Eden looked like – there must have been bugs – but with better manners?
All the carrots were harvested this past week since they were so HUGE! Necesity is the bother for creativity. I ran out of refrigerator space so came up with all sorts of recipes. I quickly wrote down this recipe and have no idea where I found it – sorry.
1# carrots, diced and cooked to al dente Add and toss together: 1 tsp paprika 1 tsp cumin 2 T olive oil 1 garlic clove, minced 1 Tbsp parsley 2 T lemon juice salt to taste
We ate it warm but one can also serve it as a cold salad.
There is also a nice carrot & fennel soup but I misplaced the recipe:(
I have a sample of Carrot Cake Jam – wouldn’t you know! Haha. The plan is that you might like it and buy some, of course.
Today, in just 2 1/2 hours, you should expect: red peppers, summer squash, celery, parsley, tomatoes, carrots, fennel, lettuce, onions, beets, cabbage and herbs. We will have jams, broccoli, raspberries, potatoes, red onions, melons and other produce for sale.
