Week #16

Posted 8/30/2016 1:22pm by Debra Brubaker .

IN THE SHARE THIS WEEK:  Sungolds, Celery, Yellow Onions, Garlic, Chard, Beets, Tomatoes, Bell Peppers, Summer Squash, Hot Peppers. 


What a start to the week! Yesterday morning we received word that the grandmother of 3 of our works passed away so they would be spending the day with family, and at the same time our employee Kat started having contractions.  To further add to the excitement, Hannah's father who has been in and out of the hospital, and is currently living with us, had to return to the emergency room midday yesterday.  So today's share is brought to you by fewer hands workings as quickly as possible.  Some of the frills we had hoped for are missing, but we promise to add those next week.  

The great news is that Kat and Fred will be returning from the hospital today, with a new addition to the farm community (we are all waiting excitedly to hear the details and look forward to them introducing their new one soon!) 

Recipe Ideas

We have celery again this week.  My mother has been making use of all the seconds we have by sauting chopped celery with onions and mushrooms and freezing the mixture in small portion to add to soup throuhout the winter.  I have also been adding this mixture to my morning eggs which has been delicious.
