Crop Report: Fresh Picked Summer Produce
Hi everyone! Thanks for checking in! We've been so happy to see so many familiar faces this past week. Our customers are a perfect reminder of why we love what we do!
We have lots of delicious summer produce available in our farm market. Everything has been great so far, it's wonderful to have fresh produce again! Our favorites so far have been, peaches, watermelon and tomatoes. A list of all produce available in our farm market to follow.
Fresh summer produce has been the inspiration of so many of our dinners this past week. Here are some awesome summer recipes from one of our favorite food blogs, Half Baked Harvest. Recipe links below.
Spicy Chickpea & Cheese Stuffed Summer Squash and Sweet Peach Thyme Shortcakes
The rain has been keeping us out of the orchard the past few days. In the next couple weeks we will be grinding down to get the apples thinned. For the apple geeks, when apple tress put on fruit there are more apples than the tree can handle. We go through and remove up to two-thirds of the apples by hand before they reach maturity. This allows the remaining apples to grow to a good size and have more flavor. It's a very tedious process but well worth it!
We're hoping the rain will stay away this weekend, fingers crossed! If you're looking for something to
do this weekend, check out www.yellowspringsohio.org for events happening in Yellow Springs.
