Week 8 of summer shares

Too many tomatoes!

We have SO many tomatoes in the store right now we are out of room. Not to mention what is still in the garden. So…. If your looking for something fun to do this weekend I really recommend you try bottling some tomatoes or making tomato sauce or even just eat them for dinner. You know, slice em, dust with a little salt and pepper and sprinkle with layer of mozzarella cheese add a few ribbons of basil, Mmmm!

Now for the real reason you came here…. Shares.

We are trying something a little new today. Kind of an experiment you could say.

We have baskets for you still and they have:

Armenian cucumber

Slicing cucumber

Baby potatoes

Green beans

Tomatoes (of course)

Peaches

Cherry tomatoes

Peppers

Now for the experiment part. We have the extras box out, and you get to pick out 2 things to finish off your basket. We didn’t have enough of one thing to make it fair so we are going to let you decide what is fair to you.

There is…..

tomatoes

Eggplant

Squash

Onions

Peppers

Tomatillo

Week 3 of summer shares

Picture perfect

Hot hot baby! This heat wave, my goodness is it intense. I was hoping that June would be the monsoon month. With lots of summer thunderstorms and some much needed rain. Oh well, we will cross our fingers and pray that July will be the month of rain. The garden sure needs it.

So with shares today, it is a lovely basket with some repeats, staple items, and some new.

Apricots are very tender so please handle with care. Unless your making apricot ice cream than pound those suckers to a pulp!

Shishito peppers are really good roasted and added to a dish (or just eaten as is) they have a very nice flavor.

Shishito peppers

Zucchini

Purple potatoes ( make purple mashed potatoes!)

Carrots

Apricot

arugula

Onion

So for this week we have:

Carrots

Week 7 of spring shares

May strawberries

I have a love hate relation with southern Utah. ( I am a native born and breed here too) There are days I am so grateful to live in this beautiful area. With our unique landscape, adventure opportunities, and where we can grow so many things a lot sooner than a lot of other areas can…… But on the other hand we have some pretty extreme wind and heat and pests to contend with! Oh well, appreciate the good, deal with the bad, take everything one day at a time and life will go on.

For your baskets this week we are splurging a little, with some first if the season items and a couple repeats.

We hope you have enjoyed your baskets so far, we only have one basket left in the spring season, before we make the heavy transition to summer garden.

Garlic scapes

Chard

Lettuce

Herb bag; dill, rosemary, cilantro

Lemon

Hakurei salad turnip

Strawberries

Rhubarb

Asparagus

And if I forgot to list something it will be a surprise for you

That little 1/2 inch of rain we got at the beginning of the week sure was nice. I just wish it was about 3 times that amount!

On the garlic scapes if your not sure what to do with them here is some ideas…..

Grill then with other veggies

Make them into a pesto

Substitute for actual garlic

Chop, Freeze,and use in soups

If you don’t want them, let us know and we will gladly use them ourselves

Beets

Garlic scapes

Spinach

Fresh pulled pearl onions -you can cut the tops and let them dry out or use the whole thing from greens to bulb
