We had another fantastic weekend. Ryan and I went camping with my sister, nephew, and brother-in-law. The weather was great and we had a lot of fun. We tried making pizza on the grill over the campfire and it was the best.
When we returned on Sunday, we had to rush off to Loon Organics farm for their open house. This farm provides our crop share every two weeks. It was really nice to see Laura again and great to finally meet Adam, our farmers.
We learned all about garlic they grow and how they size it, and
How they dry it.
We toured the 2-acre farm seeing all the flowers,
And the peppers.
Here’s one that we picked. It looks so cool!
It was such a beautiful day and very neat to learn about how Adam and Laura became farmers. We also learned they are fans of our blog too. (Hi Adam and Laura!)
We picked a few peppers, some cherry tomatoes and were given some eggplant and red onion, so it was like a mini crop share.
So far we have used the veggies for:
White pizza with red pepper, jalapenos, roma tomatoes, gold cherry tomatoes and basil.
And stir-fry with Japanese eggplant, kale, red onion, scallions, garlic, and green pepper.
Here's the final product. Too many dashes of hot sauce made it quite a bit spicy!
We pick up another crop share on Thursday, so we are excited for that and can't wait to try some more new ideas.
