He said, have a seat, and I sat down
Is this the first time you’ve been to our little town?
I said, I think it is
He said, I don’t like to brag
But we’re kinda proud of that ragged old flag

-Johnny Cash

We celebrated the fourth with friends playing music including a few songs by Johnny Cash.   So much fun – and if you haven’t been to the Pigeon Mountain Grill…..

The PGM is one of the few restaurants around that raise their own beef.  They support other local farms by buying local produce – and support local musicians by having local music every week.  They support local artists by having local art hanging on the wall.  If you haven’t been – make a point to drive out to our neighborhood.  Have a great burger and enjoy our little town.

Farm News:  The Walla Walla onions grew beautiful and big.  However – the weather was not dry enough for them to finish properly in the field.  Our red onions took a hit as well, and are not curing as I would like.  Mother nature throws you a bone – and then eats half of it.

The good news is…..  the good news is loads of potatoes and onions in the shares this week.  Also, cucumbers, summer squash, green beans.  I hate to do it – but the fennel I over planted – so one more fennel bulb this week and a recipe to go with it.  Cutting Celery.  Also – basil and garlic.

So…. we plant what we love.  I love onions.  Jennifer loves potatoes.

Last week at the market I mentioned, Jennifer loves potatoes.  A customer asked, how do you like them?  She replied:  ”  I like roasted potatoes, hash browns, baked potatoes, french fried potatoes,  twice baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, potato salad.  I like potatoes for breakfast, I like potatoes for lunch, I like potatoes for dinner.  Enough said:)

Recipe:

My friend (and best chef I know) bought a fennel bulb last week.  I asked, what are you making?  And he said our new favorite salad:

Raw fennel sliced thin, roasted walnuts or pecans, celery sliced equally thin, and blue cheese.   A light red wine vinaigrette to finish.

I tried it – could eat it every night!

Thanks for buying local food from Circle S Farm.
