Market Menu for July 12, 2014

After a rainy Friday morning we are just finishing up the harvesting for the Saturday market. With just a few boxes of French Filet green beans last week, Andrea and Reed picked two bushels this morning and they are "dewy fresh"!

Jenna's guest post on chocolate mint hints, tips and recipes in last Thursday's blog post has been very popular and is on our Popular Posts list in th right side of the front page on our blog. You might want to check it out.

We sold out of baby zucchini and patty pan squash last Saturday, but we have another row starting this week so we will have many more of these little beauties this week. We also have a great supply of squash blossoms (and some good tips on the blog for how to prepare them).

We have more baby potatoes and Walla Walla Sweet onions, both of these crops love the summer warmth and showers, so are responding with abundance.
Our customers sometimes assume great radishes are only available in the spring. Reed picked a whole bushel of the nicest radishes this afternoon. Reed is our root expert and he says they are the best of the season so far.
Reed has been diligently making charcoal all week from waste wood around the farm, so we will bring some to market this week. I will have a series of posts next week for an explanation of why we are making charcoal and the exciting possibilities for the farm.

We will have the following items at the Farmers Market for Saturday, July 12, 2014 (New items are in Bold Print)
