WHERE IS GUMBY? FARMER GUMBY STOLEN - $50 Goodwill Gift Card Reward for his safe return.
Goodwill at Homefields Farm's Gumby was stolen sometime Sunday after 8pm. We need him back to keep the birds away from the berries!
Please wait to pick things in the herb beds and Pick Your Own field until you see it listed on the Pick Your Own/Herb boards, so things reach the correct height, stage or maturity.
If we've overlooked something, please let us know!! :-)
Flowers: see flower board at distribution area
**observe that CLEOMES have thorns**
Carrots: carrots are really good roasted in the oven with some coconut, olive or peanut oil. Of course they are also good as carrot sticks or in salads.
Kohlrabi: sort of a mini-broccoli little crunchy dude, these are tasty raw and taste kind of like mild sweet broccoli. Usually eaten raw. Some people peel away the outer layer. I ate one this morning unpeeled and enjoyed it.
Summer Squash: add raw to salads, steam lightly, or stir-fry. Don't overcook unless you like soft consistency.
Scallions: These mild-mannered onion family folks give an easy onion flavor to salads, sandwiches, stir fries and more. Or you could do the old classic buttered bread and sliced scallion treat: my grandparents talked a lot about enjoying them in spring. "A good spring tonic" says my 101 year old grandma.
Garlic scapes: we hope you enjoyed the delightful flavor of these. In a couple of weeks the garlic bulbs will be ready!
Lettuce heads: these have run their course and are stretching skyward--a precursor to bolting--flowering to make seed.
Lettuce mix--the leaves have given it their all and are now finished.
