Good Morning! It is another beautiful, cool morning, perfect for picking delicious fresh produce for the weekend!
The PEAS are finally ready! They are later this year due to the wet spring- I couldn’t get the tractor into the field to make the rows and get them planted as early as usual. But their tender sweetness makes up for the wait! Snap peas, Snow peas, and pod peas, across from the strawberry field (on the other side of the Galleta strawberries), and the rows are labelled. Yum! It’s amazing how sweet they are, fresh off the vine- so different from the supermarket offerings.
The strawberries are still bearing heavily, and are filled with super sweet fruit. Earliglows are at the small berry stage at this point, but lots of bigger berries in the other varieties. It is easy picking throughout the field now, but the season is fleeting- get them while the last!
I’m cutting the last of the garlic scapes today… Garlic scape pesto freezes well, and makes for a nice treat when tossed with pasta or served over cream cheese with crackers.
It’ll be a great weekend to pick- bring dad and the kids and enjoy an old fashioned family pastime!
Hope to see you soon!
