2014 week 15

New this week:

Pole Lima Beans from LaRosa's in Woodstown, NJ are included in your share this week.  Check out their website dedicated to Pole Lima Beans.

--To cook lima beans first you must shell them. Open the shell and pluck out the beans.  Put the shelled beans in a pot add water to cover.  Add a couple slabs of butter, salt and pepper to the pot.  Bring to a boil. Cook uncovered for 20 minutes or until tender, adding more water if necessary.

Lima beans are delicious served along with sweet corn.  Succotash, a traditional thanksgiving dish, is boiled lima beans and corn. YUM.

Ruby Queen Red Plum from Circle M Farm in Quinton, NJ. We had these last year and love them so much. So glad to be able to share them again this year.

Last year was the worst year we have ever had with watermelon, 16 inches of rain in June created extreme flooding, which then lead to fungal diseases like we have never seen.  Our  first field was an unprecedented complete loss.  It made us feel like we don't know how to farm.  This year is REDEMPTION YEAR! The watermelons are beautiful, plentiful, and delicious! Woohoo!
