Farm Fresh and Local Produce 7/25/09

I have no idea how this ended up getting lost in the drafts folder, but it’s a bit out of place (and season) at the moment. Let it serve as a reminder of one hell of a great summer for produce and hope for what will be next summer.

It seemed as if at the end of July we were getting a taste of the first root veggies to be harvested. We must’ve eaten our weight in peaches.


Ditto with garlic. Couldn’t get enough this year.


I really miss sweet corn, which was especially good this year. Sweet and crisp and delicious.

Wayward Seed had tons of apricots, which were excellent in a clafoutis.

And Mrs. Rhoads, of Rhoads Farm Market, brought in an awesome pickled peppers to sample – more about that later. Needless to say once tasting it, I made multiple batches here at home.

End of July for the first winter squash of the year? It was a sign of things to come. 🙂

Sunshine Squash

Back to fall for the next market report. 🙂
