Good Eats

We’re in the middle of good eats. Fresh fruits and vegetables are rolling in, and I’m digging through my recipes to find new ways to eat them. Our personal harvest started about a month ago, and now there’s always something that needs picking.

  1. Black raspberries: were abundant and are now sitting in the freezer, waiting to be made into jam.
  2. Snow peas: didn’t germinate well, but those that did germinate produced well and were a nice addition to our salads
  3. Lettuce: a write-off and even though some of it is still growing, it’s bitter
  4. Red raspberries: are abundant and I’m currently picking every morning; favorite way to enjoy them is on pound cake with whipped cream. Extras are frozen.
  5. Blueberries: producing well, but I caught the robins stealing the ripe berries and so I had to put chicken wire around them; favorite way to enjoy them is by making Earl Gray Blueberry Jam (so good!!!!)
  6. Tomatoes: somehow we ended up with mostly cherry tomato plants, and while they had a rough start, they’re picking up and starting to produce
  7. Garlic: harvested yesterday and now drying in our basement
  8. Zucchini: picked the first one today with more to come
  9. Herbs: favorite this year is mint
  10. Beets: spotty germination, but those that did grow are ready to be picked

Not ready for harvesting yet: potatoes, cucumbers, watermelon, spaghetti squash, butternut squash, carrots, beans, late summer raspberries

    Little farm in the valley 😋 You are ambitious Ange! We came home to cucumber plants growing crazily huge… beans growing well, green tomatoes, and corn all knocked over by some big storms while we were away.
