2017 Week 26, Summer CSA Week 4 of 26
If the solstice were not signal enough, sweet corn, beans, and the first tomatoes are a pretty good sign that it's summer. That and the sudden inclination to actually do the office work when it's warmest out, as I had planned it. :)
I know what healthy looks like, and this young farm is still on its way, but that said, I am so happy -- and I feel so lucky, as after effort we still wait for luck -- about the way the crops are so far going. Fingers crossed, and not to jinx, of course, but walking through the fields last evening, I couldn't help but smile. Although crops, in general, want to grow, I am not the only farmer to make acquaintance with stupefaction when they don't.
It was a fun week in the kitchen, especially with my new spiralizer, which makes a noodle of any squash. Super cheap, but super cool. Soon we will have the tomatoes for the noodles' own fresh sauce -- blend, then warm to taste, tomatoes, onions, basil, garlic, hot pepper, and salt.
See you on the farm,
Basil, Sweet Thai
