Market Menu for September 6, 2014

500 heirloom tomato plants are in full production as are 300 Roma tomato plants. I picked about 30 basket of not quite perfect tomatoes for canning this week. I have been canning some salsa my self and have about 70 pints so far. The recipe is on our web site.

I made some really good bread and butter sweet pickles this week. I like B&B Pickles from the store. Making your own is amazing in terms of the flavor. I did everything with organic ingredients and spices.

Here is the recipe for pickles.

I picked several 50 + pound pumpkins today. They are gorgeous with heavy duty handles. We have about 50 pumpkins this size. If you are decorating your porch these would make a great center piece.

If the pumpkins are ready then the squash have to be too, right?  Yep, we picked several bushel of squash.

This will likely be our last week of sweet corn. It has been delicious. I didn't loose a single ear to the racoons due to another of Reed's e-fence projects. We also had no worms in the ears, which was great.

Reed took this picture of our cherry tomato display at market last week. We will have about a hundred boxes of cherry tomatoes this week. Sun Gold, Grape, Black Cherry, and Yellow Pear. Reed and Christopher pick a whole bunch after school.

If you like tomatillos, I picked two bushels this week.

The fall greens are also exceptional. I'm starting a new bed of Arugula this holes.
