Scapes Alive! They Are Here!

Posted 5/8/2012 9:47am by Cheryl Ferguson.




SCAPES!!!  Yep, those tender garlic tips are here for their annual flash dance.  Sauteed, they’re like a mild garlic asparagus.  Diced raw, they add a nice bite to salsas and salads and slaws.  Or stir fry to mellow them into your spring veggie medley.  But they’re only here for about 3 weeks, so come on down!  We’ll have scapes this week at the markets we are doing this week:  Cobblestone Farmers Market (Tue.), Old Salem Farmers Market (Opening Day is Saturday, May 12th), and also at PYO Strawberries at our farm this Saturday, May 12th.  (9 a.m.--NOTE new later time!-- to noon.  Last picking starts at 11:30 a.m.)

 It's time to e-Scape!!

Here's to Happy, Healthy, Organic & Local Eating,
Cheryl & Ray

Pick-Your-Own Update

 Blackberries in hand

Pick blackberries at Twilight!  Our delicious Triple Crown blackberries are still doing well!  They are loving this heat (as long as we keep irrigating them!)  So we're having another pick-your-own on Sunday (7/24) from 5-7.  Since Sunday is going to be hot, we'll give you the opportunity to pick in the evening when it's a bit cooler -- the blackberry field is really nice at that time of the day.  We'll provide picking containers but please bring a container to take your treasures home -- plus a cooler!  You can't get any fresher than berries you pick yourself and the great thing about our berries is that they are Certified Organic AND no-spray!

Happy berry pickers
