Wednesday on the farm: bright sunshine, a stiff cool breeze & lots of girlish laughter. This week's share was more about weight than volume: potatoes, zucchini, summer squash, cucumbers, onions...then on the delicate side...tender baby lettuce, rosemary, and sweet round carrots. Lay it all out on the counter before you put it away and enjoy the colors!
A sign of Global Weirding...you certainly can't call this warming. The onions refuse to grow uniformly this summer. They range from big globes to slim torpedos. Oh, well. They clean up well and they taste good.
Rose has signed on some serious staff this week. The 3 M's are pros at weeding, washing and harvesting. I think the plants will grow better when they hear the female voices out in the rows!

Tip of the day: Ok. You've got a fridge full of veggies, but you still grab the quick,easy processed snacks (crackers, chips, etc) when you need something on the go. Here is a little something I just invented today. I took a short, slender container (I'll work on a photo for later posting) - not too big around and I put about 1/2" of homemade salad dressing (pine nut vinaigrette) in the bottom and then I packed the container with snowpeas. I ate them at my desk while working...no mess, just one dish and good for me! Anytime you can replace a processed snack with a raw veggie, it is a good thing. -Jackie
