Week #9 at Red Hill Farm, by Angela

This week is for full-share and bi-weekly Tuesday pickups.

Well, last week was a sort of farmer strength and conditioning week as we harvested loads of onions for curing, then picked up sandbags from the field for two hours (not an exaggeration), hauled corn out the wazoo, and stacked cinder blocks in the barn for part of our curing station. Yeah, we're tough  :)  All in the name of good food.

Josh will be farmer in the shareroom this week. Joanne will be available on the farm from 1-5 pm on Tuesday and 1-3 pm on Friday this week.

In the thick of it now, I hope you are as excited as I am about the bounty of deliciousness coming out of the fields. This week for your menu planning you may anticipate:

  • Blue potatoes (good for baking)
  • Shallots (please remember the note from last week; these will not store long so use them up fast)
  • Garlic
  • Sweet white onions
  • Heirloom tomatoes
  • Summer squash
  • And some other goodies....
