farm day

Yesterday was farm day. It was so hot and humid (up in the triple digits) that I chose to forgo the flowers but still managed to pick a quart of wax beans and my share of cherry tomatoes.

Inside the barn the mix and match selection included 8 ears of fabulous corn. Mmmmmm, so good when it's fresh. We also got eggplant (the small purple and white ones), kohlrabi, sweet carrots, zucchini, tomatoes, garlic, red onions, sweet onions, lettuce, beets, and swiss chard.

Dinner was a medley of veggies from the farm including grilled corn-on-the-cob. Boy was it good.

We're getting into the part of the season where the share equals more than we can eat in a week. Soon it will be time to begin pickle production. I have two friends who also belong to the farm who want to learn how to make pickles so perhaps we can do this together, should be fun.
