Greetings from the farm
July 5th already, hard to believe that half the year is gone by. We're busy harvesting all sorts of summer squashes, sugar snap peas, greens, beets, garlic, herbs and all other sorts of goodies. The cucumbers are in full blossom and we've been picking squash blossoms as well. Recipes are starting to come in from all around the area for all of those great goodies we're bringing in from the fields. At this time of year it seems that the news is all about scapes - I didn't realize just how much garlic we had planted last fall until the scape harvest came in - 3 bin box fulls!!!!!! So we're trying to most anything we can with them. One of my favorites so far has been to fry them in tempura batter and then serve them with garlic jelly for a dipping sauce!!! They make an awesome pesto and we've been enjoying them roasted in the oven with olive oil and sea salt. We've also roasted them with balsamic vinegar - YUMMY!!!!!!
