Good afternoon friends of Doe Run Farms CSA!

We hope everyone is enjoying the variety of fresh home grown vegetables that you are receiving!

Today in your shares, you will be receiving some delicious “Yukon Gold” potatoes from our potato farmer on Pea Ridge.  He grows all of our potatoes as well as our Cantaloupes that go into your shares. His cantaloupes are “the real deal”.  They are not muskmelons, which to me don’t quite measure up to cantaloupes. Both are good, but I prefer a cantaloupe.  The cantaloupes will be ready hopefully soon, I wait on them with anticipation each summer.

Be sure to start checking the online Country Store starting on Wednesday afternoon.  We will have sweet corn and peaches on there for you to purchase.  Be sure to check it out.  One thing though, to get your items from the online store delivered with your delivery Next week, your order has to be placed (online) no later than Sunday evening. 

Blueberries are history for another season. Their season was short lived for our blueberry farmer this year.  Fortunately, the peach crop looks good this season, so bring on those lovely Cling peaches!

What’s in the box this week?   Bulb onions, cucumbers, tomatoes, summer squash, potatoes, and sweet corn.

If you don’t have a Food Saver, I suggest you get one and freeze some of this delicious corn while it’s being harvested.  It doesn’t last long and corn is so versatile.  This winter you will be so glad you put some in your freezer.  We freeze it off the cob and on the cob and never do we regret it come winter.

Our recipes of the week:  In preparation for the upcoming Peach season try this recipe on for size:  Summer Peach Upside Down Coffee Cake  –  click on the link below:

Grilled Ratatouille – https://oldwayspt.org/recipes/grilled-ratatouille    A wonderful way to grill some of your favorite veggies.  This is good served over rice, spaghetti or as a side dish on its own!

We thank you for wearing your masks to pick up your CSA shares.  We continue to wear ours and probably will for a long time.  But, to stay well and keep those we come in contact with well, it’s a small price to pay. See you on delivery day!

Next week I will try to post some of the fantastic pictures of foods being cooked up in CSA members kitchens using CSA veggies. They look delicious too!

Stay well everyone, and stay home if you can,

Judy
