We're still picking in the front field- with an announcement about the lower field within a couple of days. We know a few of you (more?!) are waiting to hear about the Libertys and Legacys, so we won't delay!
I've been talking up pickled blueberries again, and want to make sure you have a link to our favorite recipe: Catherine's Pickled Blueberries. These are super delightful and worth the effort. Make sure you read ahead- it's a two day process, so be prepared.
The weather also means we've still got nice salad green, head lettuce, and squash. More produce is around the corner, so stay tuned for updates. The other excitement on the farm is that we have a new baby duck! NOTHING is cuter than a new baby duck, we've discovered. With the help of our duck mid-wife, Nik Hahn from Fang & Feather in Kenton, we're hoping to see the baby tagging along after mama very soon! We've never hatched babies on the farm, so this has been really exciting for the whole family. We're giving her a lot of space and having faith in her instincts. I'm trying not to be a total rationalist (read: buzz kill), but we're hoping the baby makes it- it's a jungle out there!
Come out and see us this weekend! We've got new jam on the stand in 3 varieties: Plain blueberry, blueberry with Madagascar vanilla bean, and blueberry lavender. All are made low-sugar with the help of Pomona's Pectin, organic sugar, lemon juice and our family grown blueberries.
Looking forward to seeing you on the farm!
