Vegetable Spotlight: Cucumbers
Even though the vegetable spotlight is on cucumbers this week – I couldn’t help but share this recipe featuring three delicious items offered in this week’s pick up! Cucumber and tomato salad is a classic summertime easy make-ahead recipe. I made a big batch of this last week and the longer everything sat together the better it tasted! Plus, it’s so easy to grab out of the fridge or pack up for a spontaneous picnic. Enjoy!
Let us know on Facebook how yours come out!
This Week on the Farm
Hello Everyone!
Happy August! Can you believe that we are already here? It must be true that time flies when you are having fun!
This week has been another rainy one – but that didn’t stop us from time spent outdoors! I love working at our green table in front of the Barn Gallery – especially during these storms we’ve been having. Something about the sound of rain has a dramatic impact on my productivity. Our farm team has been knocking work out as well!
After a short dry spell in the orchard, we have moved onto harvesting a new peach variety. These peaches are juicier and more flavorful than the last round. If you haven’t gotten the chance to try them out, you’ve just got to get out and pick some Saturday.
We have been so happy with all of the great feedback we’ve received from everyone about our new ‘About the Farm’ video. If you haven’t seen it yet check it out! This video was made possible by the generous donation of time and equipment from a wonderful volunteer. More videos will be coming out soon.
Be sure to grab your tickets for our Peach & Dahlia Festival! We can’t wait to have the farm open to the entire community and be able to let everyone enjoy the property the way we do every day. You are not going to want to miss this! If you haven’t already check out the Facebook Event page or our website for event info and tickets! See you all on August 18th from 12:00 PM – 5:00 PM!
For more updates follow us on Facebook and check out our website. If you have any questions or comments please respond to this email.
We look forward to seeing you
Happy Thursday,
Ashley Reece
