 hull peas



Personal shares:



zucchini/summer squash

Swiss Chard

slicing cucumbers


We are truly into the summer fruits and vegetables now.  Enjoy the squash!  Gregg loves it steamed with just a bit of Old Bay seasoning.  He says it is almost as good as crabs!

The blueberries are sweet.  I had some this morning for breakfast.  Delicious!  They also make great blueberries muffins.

If the cabbage has some rot on the outside - just peel it down a bit.  We are trying to keep it, but it is rotting in the field because of the rain.  Cucumbers are great sliced in sandwiches or in salads. 

Enjoy the hull peas now.  They are nearing the end of their season.

What's Coming. 

We should be picking sour cherries by the end of the week.  We are also picking a few green beans for markets this week.  We are getting a lot  more cherries tomatoes and we are beginning to pick them from the field now. 

The Store

I have added new items from to the store.  Check these out.  I will also be adding steaks to the store by the end of the week.  We had a beef butchered and will be back in steaks soon! 


Thanks to all for supporting our farm.  You make our work worthwhile not just financially, but also meaningful.  When people want what you grow and sell it makes it worthwhile.

Have a great holiday.


Remember if you cannot pick up at your usual site, you may change your location by sending me an email and arranging to pick up at another site.  You can also have a friend pick up for you. Or if all else fails - you can donate your share to the DC soup kitchen by letting us know and we will arrange for the donation on Tuesdays.
