So tonight for dinner I had an appetizer of heirloom tomatoes, mozzarella, basil and balsamic vinegar with a glass of tomobocino wine from CSA members Jabe and Barbara that the Noble Wine Cellar in Clayton. And then dinner was steamed baby carrots with carrot top and basil pesto, sautéed onions and zephyr and trombocino squash and Lindas homemade egg noodle pasta with cherry tomatoes. I say at Ladybug the pay ain’t great but the foods pretty good and the company not bad J.
Saw the first five baby watermelons this evening as Randy and I walked through the fields planning out this weeks farm chores. Very exciting as is the first time I’ve grown watermelons. The Selma Zesta pole beans look gorgeous – are 100% from my saved seeds which feels really good. Yet another reminder of the importance of saving seed that acclimates to ones local conditions.
Farm Food Favorite: Cabbage and Carrot Slaw
Hand grate or food processor grate cabbage and carrots. Add apple cider vinegar and allow to rest in fridge to absorb vinegar for a few hours or overnight. Enjoy!
I will see you all tomorrow at the CSA pickup from 4:30-6 at the Rabun County Public Library Please bring a bag for your goodies..
Until next week…
