2019. Week 10.
New this week:
Eggplant: Our family favorite, fried eggplant topped with a slice of tomato! But this eggplant recipe comes together quickly for a great week night meal.
Green Bell Pepper- I think I see some stir fried peppers and onions in my future!
Red-skinned potatoes- Red-skinned potatoes: We love potatoes in the Buzby household. I will roast these in the oven with olive oil and salt. They will be gone in no time!
Cantaloupe- So happy for the arrival of cantaloupe! That first taste is the best. My favorite fruit salad combination: cantaloupe and blueberry.
Cilantro- use for fresh salsa or guacamole! Store in refrigerator with cut ends in a jar of water and leaves loosely covered with a plastic bag for several days.
Farm update: Every year is different and brings its own set of challenges and highlights. This year, the spring was very mild, bringing the crops to harvest a little earlier then normal. We have also experienced a higher than normal thunderstorms, leading to increased crop disease. Our watermelon, cantaloupe, and pepper fields have been hit hard with phytophthora, the most damaging fungal disease worldwide. We even had hail last Saturday, which damaged the squash, tomatoes and peppers. All that to say, we are thankful for your ongoing support and please enjoy the melons now, we don't know how long they will last.
