Last night Broadturn Farm hosted a dinner with the Scarborough Land Trust. The event raised money for the land trust, but more importantly, it was a "friend-raiser" where we had great conversations, and some pretty stellar food too.
Luckily for all of us who come to the farm, or just drive by, the buildings are here, and they remind us of working landscapes and our common farm heritage.
Celery-- this is our strong flavored but sweet and spicy celery which is so hard to grow, but worth the wait!
Butternut Squash-- squash enthusiasts will have to be prepared for another poor crop due to bugs which for the second year in a row, have greatly diminished our yield and quality...
Peppers-- best pepper year ever...
Cherry Tomatoes and a few Tomatillos
Soybean edamame-- As with last week, take the whole bunch of plants home, strip them of the pods, and cook the pods in a little boiling salty water. Add some more salt if you want, and butter, and pop the pods to eat the beans inside. Preferably served with beer while watching TV.
