Good news – we have a bumper sweet potato crop!! I have been working my tail off to get them in and they are now (well most of them) in to cure. They need to cure for about a week to heal from any damage in digging them, and to develop their wonderful sweet flavor.
So …you won’t see any in your bucket for several weeks, but it’s something to look forward to!
Farm News: Calves! We have 6 so far – beautiful babies. It’s my favorite time of year. So much fun to watch them arrive and learn to play with each other. And fun to see the mothers work it out – they leave one Momma to baby sit while the others go out and graze.
What’s in the bucket: the greens and lettuce still have hail storm damage. I am hoping in a few weeks they will recover. So – it’s all about roots!! Daikon radish (see link for recipes), turnip roots, kohlrabi (not technically a root but may as well be) , cabbage, peppers (I know they are piling up – but they freeze well, keep well, and are about to be out of season!), and in honor of halloween…a pumpkin. You can carve it or do whatever you want with it – but keep in mind, they are excellent eating!! And last but not least – pepper jelly. Beware, it will have a bit of heat. Great with cream cheese and crackers!!
Here’s a link for daikon radish recipes.
Happy Eating and thanks for buying local food from our farm.
