News from The Farm

First–Elizabeth will be home from the hospital tomorrow! YAY!!!

Second–I have 5 more packs of the Pork Variety Packs–They can be purchased at Pick Up. $72 for 12 pounds–natural pork/barley sprout finished. Tender with a good flavor!

Third–no eggs this week. 🙁

Fourth–Fruit Shares that weren’t picked up today can be picked up with your regular Veggie Share. I will also have canning apples for saleSummer Reds: great for applesauce, pies, and freezing. 40# box for $68, or 10# for $18. Summer Reds are an Old Fashioned variety–reminds me of my grandmother’s orchard where as a child at 9 I would climb the old apple tree with a good book and cradle myself in the crotch to read and chomp down green apples. What a warm fuzzy!

Fifth–We are offering another canning class this week: Salsas–Olay! The garden is loaded with hot peppers, bell peppers, tomatoes are coming on, and onion is never a problem! Sign up today for the class Saturday, August 24th, 9:00 a.m in The Farmer’s Wife’s Kitchen. email: Limited to 6– Cost is $20 which includes your own salsa. Taught by Brenda Green, Canning Enthusiast Extraordinaire…I think she’s a FANATIC!

Sixth–This week shares will most likely include 1 lb of broccoli, loads of greens & peppers & cucumbers…still eggplant and summer squash. No corn this week–second planting ready soon. I will have several heads of cabbage for sale at $2/head–last of the transplanted crop. Cabbage started from seed will be available in September for sauerkraut makers and cabbage burger freezers.

    These are available to anyone and are outside the Fruit Shares. You can pick them up at our place Thursday between 4:30 and 6:30. If that is too late for you, we harvest every morning Tuesday through Friday and you are welcome to stop out anytime in the morning. thanks–The Farmer’s Wife
