Update from the Farm–Week 8

We are into the 8th week of Harvest, the Fifth FRUIT SHARE is upcoming, and we’re offering MANY GOOD FOOD OPTIONS for healthy living–

This week’s SHARE offers a special introduction of our CARROTS, CELERY, POTATOES, and ONIONS all bagged together with our Mulligan Stew recipe! The proportions may not be 100% accurate–bag limits how much onion you can add. Second introduction is to our AVATAR CANTALOUPE and PRIMO (the one they sell at the store)–both are EXCELLENT!

5th FRUIT SHARE can be picked up MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 16th, 4:30 to 6:30. This week’s feature is all ORGANIC from GOOD EARTH MARKET in Billings. Included will be the ADD4WEEKS of peaches and plums for those 12 that purchased that option–

–The Plum Man has contacted me and has American Plums ready–Anyone interested? These are small and sweet–good for jellies and jams and wines and snacking. $2/gallon to cover his expense. Email me if interested! tcraft@rtconnect.net

RASPBERRIES! We can get a second wave of raspberries out of Riverton–Cost is $27 for a flat. They also offer 1 pound for $7.20–one big container instead of 16 little ones. Order goes in TOMORROW–THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 12th for delivery on MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 16th, 4:30 to 6:30.

I just made a batch of SPAGHETTI SAUCE using the Heirlooms and did not have to add any sugar to counter the acid!! The best ever–would anyone be interested in a SPAGHETTI SAUCE PACK? Info in a separate post–
