Notes from the Farm
This week we welcome some new fauna to the farm as we have recently adopted a three-year-old duck and five young geese in need of a new home. They are living in the chicken’s winter paddock behind the farmhouse, and while they are still a bit shy, would love for you to come say hello.
In our harvest we have the first of what should be many zucchini and summer squashes to come. The cucumbers are still just trickling in, but the greens remain abundant and we’ll distribute the last of our spring onions (with the tops removed). We also have our first harvest of salad turnips. These beautiful scarlet colored turnips are best eaten raw – sliced in to salads or placed on toast with butter – but also can be cooked. The turnip greens can be cooked too, so consider steaming or sauteeing them as a side dish or mixing them in with your kale, dandelion greens or spinach.
Have a great 4th of July weekend!
