Another weekend is upon us!
Thanks for all your input from my last e-mail. We had a nice bump in attendance the past two days, over 70 on Wednesday and 60 yesterday. Hoping for 100 today and tomorrow. Let's keep both Jesse and I on our feet! Remember, if you are in a hurry, let us know. If you aren't and want to take a stroll or hang out, you are more than welcome.
The field is glorious now and the sunflowers (which are doubling as bean poles for our dried beans) are spectacular!
We have chairs in the patio area where you can sit and chat.
At long last the summer vegetables and fruits are maturing! We have, as Pablo says, (almost) everything! Marrowfat Shell beans are not quite ready but soon they will join the roster! Here's most of what we have: lots of Strawberries, Tomatoes, Sweet and Chile Peppers including Gypsy, Inferno and plenty of Padrones, Eggplant, Summer Squash, Green, Yellow and Romano Fresh Beans**, Cabbage, Asian Greens, Chard, Lettuce, Carrots, Beets, Turnips and Turnip Greens, Sweet Red Onions, Yellow Onions, Garlic, Dried Garlic Scapes, Sweet Corn on the Cob, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Cucumbers, and probably something I am forgetting. Oh, Sweet Basil.......Red, White and Blue Potatoes.....
The Hominy Grits (good weather for it now), Corn Meal of many colors (the Peruvian Black makes a spectacular corn bread), Hominy, Heirloom Dried Beans, the remaining Dried Chiles and Powders, Flavored Salts and the Jams.
** This is an incredibly delicious and simple fresh bean recipe. We had it last night. http://www.tierravegetables.com/FreshBeans.htm
