Corn will be in Bee Healthy Monday…too wet to harvest for Saturday…Organically grown, non-GMO…text 431-1219 to order for canning…Canners tomatoes, too.

Stop in and pick up your own fresh, locally grown vegetables and fruits!

“The Hurrier I Go the Behinder I Get!” Fresh Produce Day at Bee Healthy, Utah Peaches, too! Watermelons and Cantaloupe Galore–CSA Boxes!

It was Lewis Carrol’s March Hare that famously made that statement….And I totally OWN IT! The garden is in full bloom, the mornings are cooler (even with the 100 degrees this past week during the day), and NOW we are in for a little reprieve…84 degree high for today and 60 degrees tomorrow….WHAT?! It looks like the 100 degrees are history. At least, as far as we know!

Let me give an update on The Farm, we’ve been running full boar staying on top of every thing the best we can. We’ve harvested over 1600#’s of Cauliflower! 1200#’s have gone to the Food Bank of Colorado, and the balance to our CSA members and Bee Healthy, Sackett’s in Sheridan, Fresh Foods Wyoming in Casper, and NaM’s Sweet and Savory food truck in Greybull. We are now into the harvest of the Flamestar cauliflower which is a nice cheddar color…we are hoping the Graffiti in its gorgeous purple has time to mature! Good news– cauliflower, broccoli, broccolini, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts ALL love it cooler and should continue for a nice harvest this weekend!

Tomatoes have suffered with blight, but we plant in volume and use different varieties. I have Roma tomatoes harvested and boxed and ready to go….There are 2 extra boxes of Roma’s at Bee Healthy– Text me at 431-1219 to put your name on them! $30 for 20#. Slicers/Canners will be harvested this weekend…Text 431-1219 to reserve them for your canning needs! Seems the Heirlooms and saladettes have suffered, but NOT any of the Cherry tomatoes! Try the Apple Pear Cherry tomatoes at Bee Healthy…looks like that name covers most the fruit! More Washington Cherry to follow….

Vegetable Boxes at Bee Healthy for CSA members: Tendersweet Cabbage (flathead, thin-leaved and sweet, great for wraps and even in BLT’s…true story…out of lettuce, used cabbage), Walla Walla onion (fresh, store in fridge), English Cucumber (grown in high tunnel), Islander Bell Pepper (purple to orange, sweet, light fleshed), Summer Squash (again or forever…Yellow Zephyr and Costa Romanesco or striped zucchini), Green Beans (YES!), Broccoli, Corn! (4 ears…more for sale at Bee Healthy Saturday), and 2 Sugar Cube cantaloupe

Well…gotta go! Members–Come and get your boxes! Customers–come and buy some veggies (Watermelons and Cantaloupes, too!), or any of the other great stuff we stock at Bee Healthy! Let’s consider it Farmer’s Market every Thursday at Bee Healthy–no time on Saturday’s with the garden and its obligations to meet you at Farmer’s Market, so meet us Thursday…or Friday…or Saturday at Bee Healthy where the produce is fresh and cooooled!

PICKLING CUCUMBERS AVAILABLE–Text 431-1219

Haronie European Picking Cucumbers

The garden has finally come into its own and is PRODUCING 3 fold on the earliest items!

Pickling cucumbers ready NOW– we have both European Picklers (Harmonie) and American Picklers (Max Pack)–$25 for 13#…which makes roughly 8 quarts of pickles. (American picklers have thicker, bitter skin…European have a great flavor but are thinner skinned. Both work but if you are using an old fashioned recipe, consider cutting the salt in half for the European’s. )

We don’t have dill, yet, but some folks around have it growing wild, or you can purchase dill seeds (concentrated flavor, but no pretty fronds). We also have dried chili peppers if you like your pickles hot. 🙂

FRESH PRODUCE THURSDAY and First CSA Share!

This week’s Share:

Brassica’s

Happy Rich Broccolini- 8 oz (shorter stalks, sweeter leaves, tasty raw, but shines cooked!)

BC1611- 8 oz (longer stems, round heads, better cooked)

Broccoli/ Cauliflower Mix-1#

Summer squash mix- 2#

Swiss chard

Greybull Valley Lettuce

Snack cucumbers- 8oz

Brassica’s! You’ve got them this first week— Brassica’s!  Family of broccoli, cauliflower, kohlrabi, cabbages, and radishes!  Yes, radishes!…distant relative…but let Brassica’s get heat stressed and the radish flavor comes through!

This week’s Brassicas are 2 kinds of mini-broccoli AKA broccolini, Happy Rich and BC2611.  And a bag of cut-up broccoli and cauliflower.  (What to do with 14 heads and 16.6 pounds—)

Store in cold refrigerator protected from refrigeration damage (plastic bag).  Eat steamed, boiled, grilled, roasted, or raw if you must.  Cook Broccolini with the leaves on.  My fav is cooked in the cast iron skillet (steam first with a bit of water to tenderize, then add olive oil and season), with steamed as my second choice.  

Summer squash is zucchini, Zephyr (yellow with Green tip), Costa Romanesco (striped zucchini heirloom).  Wash first…a little gritty from a midnight rain that splashed up dirt onto the plants.  We do not normally wash your veggies as it introduces moisture which shortens their life span and can introduce bad bacteria.  Veggies have a protective coating—as a general rule, wash before use. 

Snack cucumbers, AKA Harmonies, European Picklers.  One of our favorites: good small to large (any size), no bitter tough skin (thus ‘snack’), and prolific (we’ll have them all season!). 

Swiss chard is healthy as a member of the same family as spinach and beets.  Equally nutritious cooked or raw.  Great Swiss chard salad at http://www.lloydcraftfarms.com , recipe tab.  Secret is how Swiss chard is cut (chiffonade- roll leaves and cut into thin shreds) and tenderized with an oil and vinegar dressing.  

Next week’s shared should have peppers and cherry tomatoes!! Stay tuned!  Still a few spots in the CSA if you’d like a dependable supply of organically raised garden veggies for up to 15 weeks— text 431-1219 or Register online and pay at Bee Healthy.
