We're just barely into July, and already I'm offering you extra summer squash! Please don't panic: you don't have to take it if you don't want to. On the other hand, if you feel so inclined, here are several squash recipes from the archives; ranging from basic to elaborate, and from savory to sweet, I hope there's something here to appeal to any culinary mood. Sauteed Summer Squash, Summer Squash Muffins, Courgettes & Yellow Summer Squash with Cumin, Summer Squash Ribbons with Almond Pesto, Creamy Zucchini Soup, Summer Squash Fritters.
New Potato & Pea Soup was a late-spring/early-summer staple in my house growing up, and though I have yet to achieve a farming season in which both new potatoes and shelling peas are ready at the same time, it's worth making even if you have to use frozen peas.
Share pick-up takes place at the farm, on Thursdays between 3:00 and 6:00pm. Pull into the Lawrence Township community gardens and follow the gravel road uphill to the left. Please remember to return last week's bags and/or containers, and sign in when you take your share. Any payment can be placed in the envelope next to the sign-in sheet. See you at the farm!
