Market Menu for Saturday, July 19, 2014

It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood after a week of uncommonly cool weather. Good for weeding, planting and harvest. All of which were seen in abundance at the Petersen's this week.

Jenna's guest post on chocolate mint hints, tips and recipes can be seen to the right.

We now have a good supply of baby zucchini and patty pan squash.. We also have a maxi-big quantity of squash blossoms (and some good tips on the blog for how to prepare them).

The Walla Walla Sweet onions looked so nice last week that several of our customers wondered if they were "real".  Yep, very real and full of flavor. Who says onions have to be grungy looking.

Radishes are one of the highlight of this week. Andrea gets the honor of picking the crunchy sweet beauties.

We picked 5 bushels of french fillet green beans this week. Come and get them.

Reed has been diligently making charcoal all week from waste wood around the farm. We will have 40 pounds available. I wrote a series of posts this week for an explanation of why we are making charcoal and the exciting possibilities for the farm.
