I got to help set up and take down our farm’s stall at the Friday afternoon farmers’ market – so fun! It’s still not super busy as it’s fairly early on in the season, but I’m looking forward to helping out more as we harvest ever-increasing varieties of produce!
Today was the first day of STRAWBERRY picking – man, I was so tempted to eat every other berry I picked, but managed to resist…mostly. They are so juicy and sweet!!
Anyway, I wanted to share some photos I took of the wonderful produce from the farm! Let’s see if I’ve got my vegetable terminology straight…
Radishes: Easter Egg, Cherry-Bell, and French Breakfast
Golden (they look like sunset!) and baby red beets:
Red-leaf butter lettuce:
Curly Leaf and Red Russian kale:
Mmm dill, cilantro and basil:
Salad turnips and rainbow carrots:
Zucchini – check out that bad boy in the middle – we have to stay on top of picking them daily, otherwise they become GIANT!
Beautiful li’l strawberries – apparently these disappeared rather quickly!
Kathryn and Rob: expert organic farmers!
Whew, so glad it’s the weekend! I’ve been really tired this week – think earlier bedtimes are needed so that waking up at 6:15 doesn’t feel like such a struggle. I put turmeric instead of cinnamon into my oats this morning – clearly my brain is a bit foggy. (It actually tasted ok, although I certainly wouldn’t do it again by choice.)
Planning to cook up some or all of the following:
-sweet potato-pecan pancakes
-vegan potato salad with lotsa dill
-chickpeas and spinach in coconut milk
-oatmeal chocolate coconut cookies
