From the Fields of Freedom Valley Farm 7.20.16

Posted 7/20/2016 5:23pm by Jim Baughman.

Hi Folks,

Whew the heat and humidity. It’s been a hot muggy week on the farm. Pop up thunderstorms and warm afternoons have slowed things a bit on the farm this week. Luckily we have a lot of crops ripening that is allowing us to fill the CSA shares and take to market. This week I will be selling at a second farmers market. Chip will be manning the Bloomington Market for several weeks while I explore selling our produce at the Downtown Terre Haute Farmers Market. I’m excited to try out this market. I believe Terre Haute is an up and coming market for the local food front. They have a nice farmers market located downtown right by the Clabber Girl Bake Shop. I’ll miss not seeing my loyal customers and CSA members at the Bloomington Market but Chip will be there to serve all and at some point Chip and I may switch up in order for me to touch base again.

It’s been more about harvesting on the farm this week then planting.  We continue to have daily harvest of tomatoes, egg plant, zucchini, and green beans. The summer onions have kept us busy harvesting and curing them for short term storage. We have not been able to plant anything due to the rains keeping the soil to wet.

In your shares this week you will receive Green Beans (check out this week’s recipe), Lettuce Mix, Tomatoes (see this week’s recipe for Salsa), Cilantro, Zucchini, Summer Onions,  Jalapeno and Green Peppers.

Enjoy the taste of summer, Jim
