This was our first year to grow corn. We grew an heirloom sweet corn variety called Stowell’s Evergreen. It’s completely non-GMO and never had pesticides of any sort sprayed on it. We hope you can taste the difference from store bought corn!
We have a special treat in our Full shares this week – Honey! From our own hives, this honey was harvested just a couple weeks ago. The bees that pollinate our gardens also make delicious honey.
Preparation for our fall garden is well underway. We are busy ordering fertilizers, seeds and transplants as well as rooting some of our own tomatoes, planting pumpkins and popcorn, mulching our sweet potato patch, and much more!
Expected harvest for this week:
Full Share: Honey, Squash, Corn, Sunflower sprouts, Potatoes (double portion), Eggplant, Peppers, Okra or black eyed peas, Tomatoes, Melon, Basil, Garlic, Thyme
Half Share: Sunflower sprouts, Cucumber, Potatoes, Tomatoes, Basil, Garlic, Thyme, Eggplant
Have you been putting off cooking your eggplant because you’re not sure what to do with it? Well, we have the perfect recipe for you! It uses plenty of eggplant and will please even the youngest people at your dinner table – eggplant cake. If you don’t have much of a sweet tooth, another great idea for eggplant is just mixing it in with a pot of spaghetti and meat sauce. No one will even notice it’s there.
