I just stopped by my mom's to pick up some of the produce she got this week.
PYO strawberries - I am lucky enough to have gotten a few of them.
Summer squash - none for me! I thought it was early for squash, but I think the heat may be a factor.
Lettuce... of course. This week I got some deer tongue lettuce, which I like because it looks cool!
Mom loves beets...
The boc choy was unfortunately pushed to the back of the fridge, where it froze a little... oh well. I got to take one head home with me.
Knowing that broccoli is my FAVORITE! she kindly let me take home 3 heads.
I got most of the garlic scapes, which I think I may try to pickle this year. I'm thinking my large stock pot should be big enough for hot water bath canning 3 pint jars...
I got the arugula. I have some plans for it, which I can hopefully share as a success story soon...
I received a bit of fun news as well - my mom's friend got a share for her family this year, and they are going on a 2 week vacation. She so kindly offered her share to me and I will even get to pick it up myself :) I have so missed the farm this year - every Tuesday I am so sad to be driving to work instead of to Pennington - but I can swing it for a short term opportunity like this. I am looking forward to reconnecting with something that makes me so happy! In just a few weeks I'll be sharing my own pictures instead of my mom's. Looking forward to it :)
