What to Do With Your Share---Week 9

We don’t know what to think this year, the next 7 days are going to be a strain to all the living things out here. We are about to learn about pond water management.

The crops say late-July in the harvest. We are mighty busy right now, so the recipe suggestions are going to be slim but concise. Eggplant is great as long as it is cooked to the texture of a cooked mushroom. They are excellent cut into large strips and broiled or grilled. Tomatoes, summer squash, garlic, peppers, cherry tomatoes, and onions are great broiled, as they don’t fall through the grill.

We are happy to be able to give you a good batch of tomatoes this early, and assume you know what to do with them. We hope you feel they are the real deal, and they meet that urge for a “home-grown” tomato.

It has been a treat so far this year picking these fruits with our apprentices, Dani and Ryan; and a volunteer group of Marlene Reuter and Mark Flynn. And when that's done, the crew wipes them down and gently sorts them so they will arrive at distribution in good shape.
