I can't believe it's already August! The weeks are flying by...
As you probably have heard, we've been having some ups and downs at the farm recently. It looks like we're going to have to pull all the outdoor tomato plants because of late blight (a really nasty disease!). So that's been a real bummer. Tomatoes are our most time-intensive crop, so losing so many is really disappointing. But if we don't pull them soon, the disease could spread to the greenhouse tomatoes or even the potatoes, which we want to avoid at all costs. So it goes - But other crops are doing well. The beans are really producing, the summer squash is up and running, and the indoor tomatoes are looking great! We have the first ones to distribute this week.
In your bags:
Green/Yellow (Wax) beans
White onions or Purple scallions
Some people received Eggplant
Lots of nice stuff!
Here's a recipe from one of our members - tried and tested on her family of six.
1 1/8 cup cooked Einkorn wheat
2 Tbsp spicy brown mustard
2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
4 Tbsp olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
2 yellow squash, halved lengthwise, then cut crosswise ¼-in. thick (I used zucchini, too)
1 cup button mushrooms (I left these out)
2 cups fresh baby spinach
4 scallions, thinly sliced
salt and pepper to taste
In a bowl, whisk together mustard, vinegar, 2 Tbsp oil, salt and pepper.
In a skillet, heat remaining 2 Tbsp oil. Add onion and cook until golden brown.
Add squash, mushrooms, and spinach. Cook, stirring until tender.
Remove from heat; transfer to a bowl. Add cooked einkorn, scallions, and vinaigrette; gently toss.
All the best,
