This Week’s Harvest
- Jalapeno Peppers
- Yellow Watermelon
- Sungold Cherry Tomatoes
- Sweet Peppers (either red bell or Corno di toro)
- Sweet Corn
- Sweet Onions
We’ve been enjoying the wildlife on the farm the past few weeks. There are so many monarch butterflies this year! A few weeks ago we were weeding the sweet potatoes and someone nearly pulled out a milkweed out before he was stopped by another employee. It was explained that the weed was milkweed, monarch caterpillars sole food source, so it could stay. Yesterday I checked the plant for caterpillars and found 2!
I tried to get a picture of the butterflies but they are very active and just seem to flutter all around the farm and never stop! While picking this week’s tomatoes, I did have several other wildlife encounters that I could take pictures of. (Unfortunately not the hummingbird who visited the patch twice while we were picking)
- Jalapeño Poppers with Corn
- Roasted Corn and Tomato Soup
- Farro Salad with Beet Pesto and Basil Ginger Carrots
- Carrot Soup with Tomatillo Relish
Coming Up Next Week (our best guess…..) Cantaloupe, Basil, Tomatoes, Red Bell Peppers, Sweet Corn, Potatoes, Carrots, Garlic, Basil, Onions
