Seeing life through another’s lens and seeking to understand their perspective can bring such peace and joy. Sam asked to take the camera and take photos for the blog. At first, I was excited that someone else had taken the lead on photos and excited to see what he would capture.
When he returned to show me his photos, I was in awe. He said he wanted to capture all the different colors of flowers in the gardens. Then he proceeded to explain the remainder of his perspectives and what he saw.
His perspective through the lens truly brought peace. As he explained picture by picture what he liked, and why he took a photo of each it was so insightful as to how he views the world. It also helped me to take a step back and enjoy the view through his eyes.
So enjoy the colors of what Sam captured. Truly a young man who enjoys a color palate as he looks at how God painted the picture.
Boxes of Produce
This list is prepared before we harvest your share. Some guesswork is involved! We do our best to predict which crops will be ready to harvest, but sometimes crops are on the list that are not in the share, and sometimes crops will be in the share even though they’re not on the list. Remember food safety in your kitchen when preparing, always wash your hands before working with your produce and always wash your produce before eating.
Black Seeded Simpson/Red Oak Leaf Lettuce – Both of these crops taste good on a sandwich or salad.
Spinach/Kale – Great for salads – a new crop of Kale was included this week.
Banana Peppers – They may be small, but they pack quite the taste.
Beets – An old garden favorite of mine. Learn how to use them here.
Radishes – The radishes have been challenged by insects this year. We finally have a few for you.
Carrots – Esperanza carrots – enjoy these summer delights.
Cucumbers – These crop of cucumbers is bountiful harvesting 75 pounds today.
Sugar Snap Peas – A new crop of peas!
Dragon Tongue Beans – This heritage variety crop took quite awhile to come in. We hope you enjoy the variety on your plates. We enjoy this crop cut into 1/2 inch pieces sautéed in olive oil with a dash of salt and pepper. I have also used this crop in Tatar Tot Hotdish and enjoyed it there as well.
Onions –Enjoy on your burgers, brats or hotdogs. I cut my onions up and freeze them to use – the year. It makes cooking much easier when I have onions pre-cut, frozen and ready for a hotdish.
Potatoes – The first harvesting attempt of the season which reaped some small potatoes which would taste delicious boiled or variety of other ways. Check out this link for more information.
Summer Squash – This crop is slowly coming on with either Golden Egg Hybrid or Zucchini. We are hoping the Peter Pan Squash is ready next week.
Tomatoes – This summer favorite is coming on. Included this week are some of the 4th of July tomatoes and some SunGold cherry tomatoes.
Fresh cut arrangement – Hosta Leaves and zinnias
