PICK YOUR OWN BOUQUET

On Saturdays at the farm we will have flower u-pick through the first frost.  Caitlin will give you a quick tutorial and then you can pick your own bouquet.  The cost is 5.00 for 25stems with the exception of a few of the larger stemmed varieties that will be .50-1.00 per stem.  Come out to the farm and frolic in the flowers with the hummingbirds.

Beans and Peas

Here are a couple simple green bean and snap pea recipes.

You Say Bok Choy, I Say Pac Choi

Several folks have asked me if pac choi is different than bok choy.  You can be assured that they are one in the same though there are  many varieties of this Asian green.  Here is a simple recipe to enjoy.

    As I snack on THE most delicious snap peas, I once again am grateful to the Weathervane farmers for growing such delicious food. Thanks especially to Juniper for excellent quality control on these peas! Thanks also for another week of dark, leafy greens and continuing my “choy” addiction. Beets are simmering and the greens to be savored for dinner, each little bite. Love this week’s photos, the idea to sell your beautiful flowers, and the recipe links! Thank you again.
