Soup weather and other savory ways to use winter squash

Today’s featured vegetable is butternut squash! This season we grew 7 squash plants which supplied us with an abundant crop of beautiful squash and way more than we can eat. Thankfully we grow for market and were able to sell some before the end of market season. Additionally, our customers received a squash in their […]

Beets!

I’m not entirely sure what we did right this season, but the beets have been amazing. Somehow we got our succession planting down with this crop and have had a steady supply for markets since 4th of July. I’ve never been a huge fan of beets (I do love the greens, though), but this year […]

Turnips!

The spring has been lovely and tasty turnips are the result. It seems people at the market don’t really know what to do with them. I’ve been experimenting too since this isn’t a vegetable that I was too familiar with either! These babies are hakurei turnips and are sweeter than the purple and yellow waxy […]

Farm to table

Below are a few tasty items we have made recently with veggies from the farm. Radishes on toast Toast some bread and spread butter or goat cheese on it. Top with sliced d’avignon radishes, chives, salt and pepper. A quick and easy snack! This was suggested to us by one of our customers who happens […]

Beets, carrots, zucchini, oh my!

Beet, carrot, zucchini sauce over noodles 1 lb. beet noodles […]

Chard, how I love thee

It’s September and our chard crop is rocking. It seems to be the one crop that hasn’t been too badly impacted by the weather, nor eaten by the critters (i.e. groundhogs). We have a few customers that love it and order it regularly, but the market goers don’t seem to favor it as much. Consequently, […]

Don't throw those tops away!

Did you know you can eat the tops of beets? Of course you did…. Well, how about the tops of radishes and carrots? Yeah, I didn’t know that either until one of our customers told us she uses the radish tops (can’t remember how) and our WWOOF volunteer told us he eats carrot tops (sauteed […]

It's winter and we are still enjoying our produce…

We are well into the cold months¬† and we are still enjoying onions, garlic, potatoes and even carrots as part of our weekly meals. It will be a sad day when I have to buy onions at the grocery store again. Potatoes and garlic should hold through winter and carrots are still in the ground. […]
