Welcome to this week's newsletter. Have you been keeping out of the heat? Work is non-stop in the fields at the farm. Just as we are growing accustomed to Florida's beautiful, summer sunny days, it looks like we're in for some heavy rain this week-end! There is lots to share this week for those who enjoy preserving, canning and freezing, so let's get started!
Just in case you missed last week's newsletter, customer Gini Hayes has a special treat for everyone! A delicious recipe using zucchini which pleases even her finicky eater! The recipe is featured below. (Thanks so much, Gini!)
Also this week we are featuring some of our bread recipes. Summer means giving way to cool sandwiches, salads and fruits. Home-made bread, buns and rolls can provide a special feel for these simple, cool meals. (recipes below)
Do you love peaches? So do we. We have obtained beautiful #1 FIRM peaches from South Carolina! They are $24 per case, 50-60 gorgeous peaches per case. Because they are firm, you'll be able to use or prepare them a little at a time. Please phone the farm to reserve.
The beet field is being harvested this week. If interested in one-half bushel of beets, please phone the farm to reserve. These beets will be assorted sizes - whatever is left in the ground. Price is $10 per bushel - great for pickling, canning and freezing. If you enjoy juicing, consider freezing these pesticide-free beets for future use.
