From the Farmer

Hi Everyone,

We hope you are enjoying the long weekend.  Please remember that Monday’s pickup is cancelled as it is Labor Day.  If your scheduled pickup day is Monday, please stop by the farm on one of the other days we are open for distribution.  Thank you!

So on Friday the crew got a great workout.  They picked 800 lbs of peppers, plus a lot of other goodies.  To date, 1.09 lbs is the largest pepper we’ve ever grown.  Val gets the prize for that one and for the largest onion, weighing in at 1.4 lbs!

Speaking of picking things, there are apple drops in the u-pick portion of your share this week.  This term refers to the apples that have fallen off the branches and are laying in the grass.  There are a lot of good apples to be found there, so head over to rows 1-5 in the orchard. You can use them for applesauce, pies, baked goods, salads – you name it!

Another item in the share this week is Sunshine squash, sometimes known as Kabocha squash. There are a few different varieties, and they are a sweeter squash similar in taste to a pumpkin.  I have listed a few different recipes above for you to experiment with. If you didn’t see this earlier on Facebook, here is how they get picked!

 

Enjoy the weekend,
Laura
