Fruits of Labor 8/25

Posted 8/25/2016 9:58am by Chris and Aeros.

Hi Folks,

We are all running full steam and beyond at this point.  All of our high schoolers have gone back to school during the week so we are a little understaffed.  We thought this might be an issue and we were right.  So if any of you know of anyone who has a touch of farming experience, as well as good physical stamina.  We are hiring.  So drop them a line to get in touch with us if they are interested.  There are only a few months left of the season, and this gig may just be a month or so.

We began digging our potatoes this week, and it was a pitiful sight to be seen.  They were tiny and few to a plant and minimal lbs per bed.  For a half acre planting, this is a very big disappointment.  Well that's what happens when your pump is busted during a drought!  

Next seasons strawberries got transplanted last week.  Last season we tried to keep our old plants going instead of planting new ones. Well, they just didn't taste as good, so we put new ones in the ground.  So we can all look forward to better tasting strawberries next spring.

This week's Share:  I didn't label this weeks share. It was to beautiful to muck up with words that you already know!  Enjoy!

Nuts and Bolts: Garlic, Sweet Peppers, Leeks, 1 Hot Pepper, Zucchini, Heirloom Tomatoes, and a quart of Saladette Tomatoes.

Gusto: Chard, Delicata, Escarole, Garlic, Sweet Peppers, Leeks, 1 Hot Pepper, Onions, Pea Shoots, Zucchini, Heirloom Tomatoes, and a quart of Saladette Tomatoes.

Recipe of the Week:

He left out the cubanelle, and it was great!
