Can you believe that we’re already 2/3 through July? In one short month, the Farm is now overflowing with ripening fruit, overgrown zucchini, and baby tomatoes. First up: veggies!
The squash (zucchini, pumpkins) are taking over. Some of the zucchini got too big before they were picked (see below), so the chickens are going get to eat them. There are so many pumpkins, we’re already brainstorming pumpkin recipes. Pass ’em along if you’ve got some good ones.
Next up: fruit! I’m happy to report that the stone fruits (apricots, peaches, and plums) are ripening nicely. In fact, I just made a plum crisp last night with fruit from the Farm. It was amazing! (Post coming soon.) The figs are looking pretty good too, as are the pears. The apples still have a little ways to go. I missed the height of the berries a couple of weeks ago. Apparently there was so much that some were frozen? (Don’t quote me on that.)
Here are some cute fruit trees that we found in the neighborhood near the Farm:
Hope you’re all having a delicious summer!
