2013 week 5

Wet N' Wild

What a week we've had.  We've had nearly 6 inches of rain in the last couple of days.  Most vegetables prefer about 1 inch a week.  Needless to say we are all feeling a little water-logged. 

Thankful for our sandy soils in this kind of weather pattern. Water generally goes right through.  Even so, tractors have been getting stuck in the mud, making unwanted ruts.  Rain suits and boots are getting lots of use. 

Since the weather has been so unpredictable, we were thankful for a break in the rain for our farm tour.  Saturday afternoon the sun came out and it was BEAUTIFUL!  Thank you to every one who came.  We had a lovely time getting to know you and sharing the farm with you. 

 This weeks share. Not pictured pick-your-own snap peas and flowers.

Kirby Pickles are making another appearance.

Yellow Squash- I just love yellow squash cooked with onion!  Or Here is a link to a satisfying yellow squash casserole.

Zucchini- This may be the week to make THE BEST STUFFED ZUCCHINI EVER.

Spring Onion- They are fresh and not dried, meaning you need to use them up within a week.  And keep them in the fridge until you are ready to use them. 

Cabbage- I've already made coleslaw.  And I have an Asian Slaw recipe in the meal plan for later this week. Cabbage is also great cooked in soups and stews

Basil- like to be stored in water, like flowers. Eric and I totally apologize for having Basil in the share and no tomatoes.  Our bad.  Miscalculation.  Can you help us out by being creative with your basil this week.--- I'm thinking basil pesto, basil hummus.  What else can we do with basil?
