Do the Can-Can!

this is why I got a really bad berry stomach ache on Friday during picking….

Things have been a bit busy on the farm. The summer rush is in full swing. Here’s a pictorial overview of all sorts of farm updates.

sweet peas were here and now they’re done, Loganberries are still here

the CSA packing line, plus Jude thrown in!

Angies beautiful flowers

strawberries are starting to slow down in the heat

pretty fennel

chard – great colors

part of our booth at the farmers market, beets galore

Boysenberries EVERYWHERE!

and the littlest member, Jude sucking on his mango

Loganberries!

We work hard. All of the harvesting, weeding, packing, digging, tilling, planting, transplanting, watering, and everything else, but we also play hard. We challenged a nearby farming community to a kickball game:

Mountain Bounty – team domination

intense warm up, one handed catching, beer in other hand

the two sides combine for a peaceful post game pic

we harvested over 1,000 pounds of broccoli last Wednesday and some were as big as Jason’s biceps

Even with all this work, we’ve made sure to make rock’in meals. Here’s a sampling:

pesto Mediterranean pizza

spring rolls wrapped in blanched cabbage leaves and special sauce

yummy pesto

beet, carrot, beet green roast

And, we’ve also tried to keep preserving food….

sun drying apricots and nectarines

the new pressure cooker with lots of our canning work: from left to right: dill pickles, with strawberries on top, boysenberries in pear juice, with pickled fennel (top), nectarines in juice, hot cumin zucchini pickle, and 3rd top mango/serrano hot sauce, bottom right jearinera and nectalo (nectarine and loganberry) jam

had to do some construction in the cabin….add some shelfs

Wow, there’s just not enough time in the day. Gotta love summer! Enjoy the rest of your weekend and eat some delicious food!
