Crop Report: Apples & Sunflowers
Thanks for checking in this week! It's really starting to look like fall around here! More apple varieties to look for this weekend. Full list of produce available to follow. We will be open regular hours Labor Day weekend.
We've been loving these beautiful days out in the orchard and picking apples as much as possible while this weather lasts! Today we are picking Jonathan. Look for Jonathan apples in our farm market in the next few days.
Peaches are starting to wind down so be sure to get your fix before the season is over! We still have 25-30 pound boxes of peaches for $30 for those interested in canning or freezing.
The Tecumseh Land Trust SUNFLOWERS ARE IN BLOOM! Sunflowers usually stay in bloom for a couple weeks. A huge shout out to our local non-profit, Tecumseh Land Trust, for planting these beautiful flowers every year. It's breathtaking!
On September 14th we will be hosting a watercolor workshop with Bley Hack. There are only a couple spots left so be sure to sign up soon! Here's a link with more info, https://www.eventbrite.com/e/paint-the-yellow-springs-sunflowers-tickets-67468517151
Yay for the long weekend and perfect weather! Here are some end of summer and early fall recipe ideas for the weekend. These end of the season peach desserts from Halfbaked Harvest and the Feed Feed are the perfect weekend treat as we say goodbye to summer. Links for Skillet Brown Sugar Peach Cobbler and Cinnamon Maple Grilled Peaches below.
We are so excited for fall! Each week brings more and more fall flavors. Many of our early apple varieties are great for baking, sauce and apple butter. We always recommend a mix of varieties for baking and cooking to create a more complex flavor. Here are a couple recipes from Halfbaked Harvest and the Smitten Kitchen to welcome fresh picked apples back into the kitchen. Links for Maple Apple Butter and Whole Wheat Apple Muffin recipes below.
We hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend!
