French Breakfast Radish
Broccoli Raab
Summer Squash
Black Twig Apples
Brian and I are headed out of town this weekend, down south into Georgia. It is rare that we are away from the farm. So in order to be able to leave we had to get a lot of things organized and it feels great. A huge amount of time was spent with irrigation, because at this point we have been without rain for about a month. It is nice though to have things in order, if just for a few days as we have to start thinking about next year already. This may be the last time we give you okra, eggplant, summer squash or tomato this season. Heading into fall with shorter days and chilly evenings, means summer crops are coming to an end. We hope you celebrate the last moments of summer as well as the beginning of fall with this week’s share. The apples are very ripe and crisp, a special treat both raw and cooked. We are so happy that we happened upon these two old Black Twig trees. A true southern heirloom tree, we couldn’t have been luckier. Check out the recipes below and enjoy the share…. Brian and Autumn
