We had a big group of Outward Bound participants out to help with the harvest this week.  They were a fun bunch of kids with lots of energy and willingness to participate.  This week was our biggest harvest of the season and the extra help was greatly appreciated.

Sugar Snap Peas

Unlike English peas, you can eat the pod of this pea.  We do recommend that you string the pea before eating for best results.  Simply pop the stem off and pull the fibrous material down the pea.  These are great as a raw snack or put them in your favorite stir fry.

Here are some salad ideas to use your snap peas

With radish…

Rocky Grass Fun 2010

We had a wonderful Rocky Grass vacation.  The weather was perfect; not too hot or cold and not a drop of rain.  We were all able to relax and have some quality summer fun with our family.  Thanks again to all the workers and volunteers that kept Weathervane running while we were away. Here are some pictures of the weekend.

We had a great relaxed time with our daughter.

The weather was perfect.  The view was gorgeous.

The music was great. Love those Infamous Stringdusters.

    Is there anyway that only this week’s news can be printed? When I try, I get the WHOLE blog.
    BTW, the vegies and fruit are wonderful. Thank you for this opportunity.

      I am not sure, but I think the best way to do it would be to highlight the text and copy and paste it into a word document and then print it. Let me know if that works. I think it should. Glad to hear you are enjoying the food.
