Summer Lovin’

Organic Sweet Baby Corn -  Belle Meadow - Tuscaloosa, Alabama

Organic Sweet Baby Corn - Belle Meadow - Tuscaloosa, Alabama

For you summer vegetable lovers, this basket is for you.

This is the mix you have been probably dreaming about. The one that possibly made you sign up for the CSA in the first place! This is the basket with all of the harbingers of the season.

Corn – this organic bi-color variety is naturally sweet. We like steaming the ears and eating them with some of our melted Amish butter or scraping the kernels from the cob, making sure to get all that good juice that comes with it.

German Johnson heirloom tomatoes – this pinky-red variety is ideal for slicing up and layering between a couple slices of homemade white bread and some Duke’s mayonnaise.

Both the German Johnsons and the bi-color corn come from our friends at Belle Meadow Farm, as do the mixed baby carrots and the cured red onions.

We could almost stop here but you know us better than that!

More tomatoes! These from Greenleaf are the standard hothouse variety and are great roasted or added to recipes that call for fresh tomatoes.

Southern Organics wows us again with more of their golden oyster mushrooms (speaking of which – tell us how you have been using these in your recipes at home? They are so gorgeous, we just know they are taking center stage at dinnertime!)  

Farm friends in Chilton county have shared their butter beans with us this week. We like preparing these with a little chicken stock, fresh thyme, a couple fresh bay leaves, a nice piece of smoked ham or bacon and then letting them simmer until they are good and tender.

And finally, no summer basket is complete without zucchini which comes from our own farm in Harpersville. For all you keto kids, these make the perfect zoodles that are such a great alternative to pasta if you are scaling back on carbs. And that gorgeous green hue brightens up every plate!

We hope you’ve made plans to join us at our farm for Dahlia Day on Sunday, July 28th! Come to the farm anytime between 4:00 and 8:00 pm as we celebrate this fantastic flower with a Mexican-themed spread from none other than Chef Angela Schmidt. Angela has traveled to Oaxaca, Mexico numerous times and has explored the cuisine from the inside out. This will be a colorful afternoon filled with fresh flowers and great food and we want you there!
