All of the rain this past week has been a blessing for our crops. The farm feels like a pageant, where cucumbers vie for attention over tomatillos, green beans aim to show out, trying to make you forget about the new okra. We like this chilled cucumber soup recipe for something that is as refreshing as it is seasonal. This sheet pan recipe makes use of the green beans, deliciously well.
At Hamm Farms, their yellow squash is sharing the spotlight with some early Romanesco cauliflower. Bookmark this squash-heavy pasta recipe — we think you’ll be making it again and again. Mountain View Orchard shares more of their zingy peaches this week. They pair perfectly with peppery arugula in this salad.
Here is another one pot dish for tomatillos! Rounding out this week’s basket is freshly frozen pizza dough from Corey Hinkel. Cory’s family is out of town this week so he made this last week for us to provide while he is away! We hope you all have a fantastic week — don’t forget to celebrate Dad on Sunday.
If we can help you put together a gift basket or help you find the perfect Smithey for the man in your life, give us a call. We love to get creative.
