Big Red Farm Share, September 10


Full Share:
  • 2 heads lettuce
  • 1 bunch chard OR kale
  • 1 lb potatoes
  • 1 lb summer squash
  • 1 lb green & yellow beans
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 2 slicing tomatoes
Half Share:
  • 1 head lettuce
  • 1/2 lb potatoes
  • 1/2 lb summer squash
  • 1/2 lb green & yellow beans
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1 slicing tomato
  • big squash
  • 2nd tomatoes
  • Jalapeno peppers
  • baby carrots!
  • no herbs or flowers this week; we are giving the herb/flower garden the week off in hopes that some much-needed rain will appear!


Now that we finally have green beans, I'm excited to share with you another delicious addition to the repertoire of cold salads that have made up so many of our meals during this hot summer.  And, since the temperatures have continued to top 90 degrees this week, I'd say we still have a few opportunities to make it!  Green Beans with Almond Pesto is nearly identical to these squash ribbons from a couple years ago, but I think I prefer the beans to the squash.  Beans and almonds are a can't-miss pairing, and adding a panzanella and a potato salad makes for a very satisfying hot-weather meal.

Jake's grandmother came for a late-summer visit last week, and while she was here she made this delicious Golden Summer Squash and Corn Soup, using BRF squash and herbs, and corn from our neighbor Walt at Village Farms.  It was one of the best summer squash soups I've ever tasted, and I can't recommend it highly enough!  It is served hot, but it's September, and the weather can't stay like this forever, can it?  Can it?!  It can't, right?


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!
