Week 10 Shares

Welcome to September, hope everyone had an enjoyable Labor Day weekend!  We did spend some time grilling and hanging around a bon fire, but we also spent part of Monday picking apples!  The kids were "thrilled" to spend part of their last day of summer vacation at the orchard :)

We also got the chickens moved out onto pasture on Monday, they are enjoying the extra space and wider variety of menu options other than just starter feed!

Cabbage harvest this morning!  A lot easier this year with the 100 gallon "harvest bin" and the new loader forks for the tractor, less carrying and lifting!! 

This weeks' shares will include:

  • Potatoes
  • Basil
  • Tomatoes
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Cabbage
  • Green Beans
  • Jalapeno Peppers
  • Cayenne Peppers
  • Apples - McIntosh

One of our shareholders shared the following pickled green bean recipe and included a couple of sample jars for us.  They were awesome and both jars were gone within a week.  http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2012/06/spicy-dilly-beans-recipe.html

Depending on your preference for heat, I'm sure you could could swap jalapenos and/or the cayennes for the red pepper flakes
