Season is a-changing! (Hot and sweet peppers, onions also available—)

PUMPKINS IN OCTOBER! Lloyd Craft Farms pumpkins, sold exclusively through Bee Healthy.

Bee Healthy, 635 Bog Horn Ave, Worland.

Utah Fruit, Lloyd Craft Farms MELONS, and more…

My favorite time of year! Fresh from the Bower’s Orchard in Utah— Suncrest and Paul Friday PEACHES, NECTARINES, and Red Bartlett PEARS— tree ripened, and ready for a day on your counter to complete the fully ripened process… Coming in next week Asian Pears and Honeycrisp Apples. Prices per pound GREAT!

**Bower’s is not certified organic, but in talking with them they treat their orchards responsibly and limit what is applied with an eye to overall health. (We sometimes call that beyond organic…with the watering down of the certification process certain chemicals are allowed in lower concentrations. USDA certified organic does not mean no chemicals. I prefer buying from folks I know and trust in order to nurture my health…and I want to do the same for our Bee Healthy customers and friends!)

A couple weeks ago I had a hankering for peaches, but I never buy them except in season…I broke down and ordered a box of nectarines from our regular produce supplier. Sad story–I threw most of them out… Picked too green, so they didn’t ripen but molded. 🙁


Our other new ‘fruits’ this week are watermelons and cantaloupe from Lloyd Craft Farms. I told you it’s my FAVORITE time of year! Back to my melon before bed–WAHOO!

The garden year has been a challenge–too wet, too cold, too hot, too cool…the poor plants are messed up, the weeds and bugs have been tyrants, and the plants internal clocks are ready to shut down.


Stocked in the cooler at Bee Healthy, Lloyd Craft Farms has the best celery in the world–we are into the second variety–Kelvin–which is taller, corn on the cob (preorder 24 ears for freezingtext 431-1219 with name and amount wanted), a good variety of hot and sweet peppers (check out the gorgeous Orange Bell Peppers in the cooler…behind the green bells!), last of the cucumbers and zucchini, purple green beans (they cook up green), colossal sized white onions and yellow sweets, 2 packages of broccolini (unless I can gleam a little from the high tunnel tomorrow), bags of cut-up cauliflower, parsley, and Swiss Chard. We also have green cabbage and red cabbage. Until the first freeze, Fresh Basil on the counter for sale – $3.75/bundle. Coming soon Winter Squash!

**Green Cabbage is the fall variety, suitable for kraut and cabbage burgers…coming soon the Savoy (crinkled leaves) which is SWEET when cooked (we like it with Brauts or Polish Sausage).

Well…that’s an update…lots of good food for a healthy body! I’m headed back to the farm to harvest and package…large order going out to Casper Tuesday! Sunday night temps may drop to the 40’s so we are focusing on clean harvesting peppers (Poblano’s look great!), and the last of the tomatoes….bringing in the cantaloupes and winter squash, digging potatoes, drying onions, and getting stocked up for at least 4 more months of food we can vouch for and know where it is from! 🙂

CSA Veggie Boxes Thursday @ Bee Healthy, and Fresh Produce Thursday, too!

Wow! The Garden has exploded…along with the weeds and bugs! As we raise things organically, we plant a little extra to anticipate the pests and bad weather, but this year has been different with the wet, wet spring, and the near 100 degrees for a week or two!

This is my lead up to the story of poor little Happy Rich (broccolini). The spring rains came, and came, and came. Happy Rich soaked it up, reveling in the fresh drink, but soon the ground wrapped around his strong roots was suffocating him! Happy Rich needed oxygen from his soil, but alas, the oxygen had been replaced by water. He withered, but hung on…! Mr. Lygus Bug and the green worm that likes cabbage and anything else Brassica-like, found the weakened Happy Rich, who was not so happy any more. They began to nibble his flowering head, and chew holes in his leaves. The Farmer’s Wife harvested the best she could, squashing Mr. Lygus and his kin as she went along.

Good news–only 10 feet were severely affected and they will be skipped next time! Farmer will spray some Bacillus Thuringiensis to give the worms a tummy ache, and we will tolerate the Lygus as best we can. There are things that kill Lygus, but it is questionable as to how good they are for the bacteria in our own gut!

Box this week–Week 3– is LOADED!


FLAMESTAR CAULIFLOWER— Orange yellow in color and just as tasty

BROCCOLI HEAD–huge and the last of our Spring broccoli that we harvested 7/30

BROCCOLINI— Happy Rich, some with tiny heads but still huge sweet leaves and stalks!

KALE— Mostly Lacinato, but some Green Curley– with the Green Curley try Kale Caesar Salad–YUM!

HARMONIE CUCUMBERS– 1# bag, AKA European Picklers or Snack cukes


SUMMER SQUASH MIX— Zucchini, Costa Romanesco (Heirloom Striped), Zephyr (Yellow with a green tip) or Patty Pan



CANDY SWEET YELLOW ONION— this was a surprise to us, too, this early in the season!

Round 2, Fall Brassicas will be transplanted the last week of June…waiting for the Brussels Sprouts to size up!  Beauty of fall Brassica’s is they love it cold and withstand the usual September frost.  The Farmer’s momentum was stopped abruptly by the rain, and BOY was that RAIN!

All the plants started in the greenhouse in March and set out in May are growing beautifully: cabbages, broccoli, cauliflowers, hot and sweet peppers, eggplant, and tomatoes.  The cucumber and summer squash plants have broke ground, protected in their covered beds from the elements of this spring, and are slightly ahead of the melons and watermelons, and pumpkins and winter squash.  The garden has lots of variety, loaded with nutrition, and raised organically.
