This Week's Fruit Harvest:
Fresh Sweet Cherries
Thank you to those who patiently waited for the storm to pass before joining us for our June Pizza Night on the Farm! The evening turned out to be a beautiful one filled with food, great spirit and of course, an adorable, friendly baby goat friend!
Save the date! Our next Pizza Night on the Farm is Sunday, July 28th at 4-7pm.
With the recent warmth and moisture, we have a very busy week ahead of us. We're harvesting, tending to tomatoes and trying to tame the weeds that won't stop growing! The newsletter is short and sweet this week so we can head back to the field and take advantage of the sun and warmth while it lasts!
Enjoy your Fourth of July holiday!
Your farmers, ~ Jen, Jeff and the farm crew
Notes from the Farm Kitchen
Sweet cherries are best eaten fresh, though I've been known to include them in muffins in combination with blueberries or frozen peaches lingering in my freezer. Sweet cherries, unlike the more fragile raspberries, will keep well in the refrigerator for up to a week. Fresh raspberries ought to be eaten within a couple of days.
The early summercarrotharvest is always one we eagerly anticipate. We love the sweet, young early carrots, and its always fulfilling for the farmer to gently tug on the carrot greens and pull these orange beautiful roots from the soil. Our moisture and nutrient-dense soils are wonderful for growing carrots so you'll see several rounds of carrots in shares this year. To store, we separate the carrots from their green tops, wrap the carrots in plastic and store in the refrigerator. You can use the tops to make carrot top pesto or donate to your neighborhood chickens!
