What to Do With Your Share---Week 15

August is moving fast this year. Lots of going back to school and college talk right now as we pass the halfway point. For us, it is the usual time of year when the sweet peppers start to ripen en masse.

And while the peppers have been sweet, I've been especially enjoying the potatoes. All you need to do is purchase, sprout, cut, plant, cover, hill, hill, hill, harvest, cure, wash and eat. That last step is the best. It is nice to eat a potato with flavor.

Porta fortuna
Right now potato salad has become a staple. Filling and tasty, you can eat it any time of day. A nice recipe that includes sweet peppers is in our September 9, 2008 blog.

Meanwhile we keep planting the crops that feed the potatoes and peppers. Taking beds out of production, preparing them for planting and seeding a cover crop is a time consuming task. This year we are doing well, with several large blocks full of cowpeas and sorghum-sudan grass. A pretty sight.
