We have an abundance of lovely peppers – mostly sweet except for the jalapenos. They include Melrose, yellow Italian fryers, colored bells and sweet little mini peppers.
We also have okra, beans, lemon squash, eggplant, a variety of potatoes, garlic, tomatoes, eggs and frozen chickens.
We are set up at the 3 French Hens market and the rain is done. Yay!!! We will be here until 2.
Lots going on this past week at Creekside Natural Farm!
We’re picking my favorite summer Squash -Lemon squash. It’s so yummy I sometimes eat it raw. And, the alpacas love to too. We started picking sweet corn and sold out every day. Our next variety should be ready early this week. Another new tomato variety for us Is Black Beauty and it’s fabulous. Thomas and Uncle Smoky share breakfast Eclipse rebuffed her prospective date (the handsome HB) so it apears her first date with him was successful.
And it all starts over tomorrow morning!
New tomato variety of the day – Missouri Love Apple. It’s as delicious as it looks
We are set up at the 3 French Hens Market in Morris with lots of lovely veggies. We will be here until 2 so come see us!
Kohlrabi and Carrot Slaw
1 large kohlrabi, peeled, stems trimmed off, grated
1/4 head purple cabbage, shredded
2 medium carrots, peeled and grated
1/2 red onion, grated
4 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1/4 cup golden raisins (optional)
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
Combine the kohlrabi, cabbage, carrots, onion, cilantro, and raisins (if using) in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, cider vinegar, sugar, and salt. Pour the dressing over the slaw, and mix until fully coated. Chill for several hours before serving.
This morning we picked bok choy and have it in the stand for $3.00 per bag.
We also have spinach, kale, herbs, Turkey Red wheat berries, plenty of eggs and plants (heirloom tomato and herb).
A customer who bought the wheat berries said he sprouted them and used the wheat grass in his green juice. I thought that was a great idea and plan to try it after all the planting is finished.
I found a baby oak while I was weeding the garlic. So glad I didn’t use the tiller.
