We finally got a break from the heat wave. The nicer weather has allowed us to get a lot done around the farm. We included some big beautiful golden beets this week. If you are not a beet fan we encourage you to try these. Golden beets are sweeter and have less eartheness to them, but are still very nutritious. We used them in a hearty stew this week. The sweet dumpling winter squash recipe is super easy to make, and tastes incredible. much like delicata squash, sweet dumpling squash is another winter squash that you can eat skin and all. most of you know that all of these winter squash that we give you will keep for months in a cool, dry location, but cook them if you notice any soft blemishes forming on the skin. Have a great week!
I don’t know if you guys have noticed, but it has been hot! We are excited to get through this heatwave and into some cooler weather. We have been working early mornings and late evenings to deal with the heat of the day. We have also kept our irrigation going almost nonstop. We’ve been doing a lot of transplanting, and will have more great crops going into fall. All the produce is still looking good and we have another great bag for you this week. We included a large butternut squash this week. This squash is very versatile and can be used in both savory and sweet applications. Have a great week and thank you for supporting our farm!
We’re in the hot sticky days of summer, though it is slightly cooler than last week. We’re also in our busiest weeks of the year, where we’re both doing the most harvesting of the year, and the most transplanting, all within the weeks of August and early September. We’re also working with a lean crew these days since 3/4 of our workers are in high school, but we’re getting through it! The bags are packed this week with a great variety of produce. The stuffed acorn squash recipe below is very sweet and savory, and the baba ghanoush is very tasty with pita chips, on sandwiches, or with pasta and sauteed vegetables. Let us know what dishes you cook with the produce. Have a great week!
