We are still devouring blueberries in our household. I’m convinced that my 2 year old just swallows them whole; he consumes them that quickly. A friend gave us 3 ginormous zucchini from their garden, so I went on a mission to use it all, and I was reminded of this awesome cake I made last […]

Whatcha Munchin’, Sandy?
This market season Sandy is going to 4 markets a week. That is a lot of markets for one individual. So she’s on the run quite a bit, and needs yummy food that transports well. She’s been enjoying the summertime peaches two ways while at market: 1) oatmeal with peaches and 2) yogurt with peaches. […]
Whatcha Munchin’, Diane?
Diane says Dandee Reds are a great snacking apple. They are a perfect size – not too small and not too big, and they have a tart sweet flavor. Dandee Red apples are a ‘sport’ of New England’s MacIntosh. Most MacIntosh sports do not grow well in more southern states because it is just too hot; […]
Whatcha Munchin’, Sidney & Anthony?
These two are two peas in a pod. They were both asked “Whatcha Munchin’?” separately, and both responded simply with no embellishment, “yellow nectarines.” (I think they were both hot and tired; I did ask them right before lunch.) We had a fabulous variety earlier in the season called “Avalon.” They were a smaller nectarine, […]
Whatcha Munchin’, Mary Margaret?
Mary Margaret is munchin’ on our Everbearing strawberries. Don’t let these strawberries fool you at market. They are UGLY. They are tiny and cracked. Some are knobby and mis-shapen. They are just not attractive like traditional June strawberries. But MY-OH-MY, are they flavorful!! Dave said, “They are so tasty, they will make you cry!” (I […]
Whatcha Munchin’, Dave?
Dave was told last weekend by one of our 14th & U customers that Summer Rambo apples make the best apple dumplings. Traditionally, Summer Rambo apples are known for the great applesauce they make. And Dave agrees, Summer Rambo are great baked too. Mary Margaret made a Summer Rambo and Blackberry cobbler this week. The […]
Whatcha Munchin’, Sidney?
Sidney is munchin’ on Yellow Nectarines, and specifically the Redgold Nectarines which we will be bringing to market this weekend. Sidney says, “These are my favorite fruit we grown on the farm and we grow a lot of different fruit! Because I don’t like to eat the fuzzy skin on a peach, I choose nectarines […]
Whatcha Munchin’? (newsletter)
I couldn’t make up my mind who to feature in the Whatcha Munchin’ portion of the newsletter, SO, we’ll be featuring three of them! Sidney and Diane are both munchin’ on Plums. Sidney comments about Methley and Early Golden Plums (the two varieties we will have at market this week), These are the first variety […]
Whatcha Munchin’, Anthony?
Anthony enjoys munchin’ on Mary Margaret’s Pickled Garlic Scapes. A customer from our 14th & U Farmers Market shared the recipe with Mary Margaret last summer, and Anthony has been enjoying the Pickled Garlic Scapes all winter long. Garlic Scapes also make great pesto. Add some basil, parsley, some nuts (pine nuts, almonds or pistachios all work […]
Whatcha Muchin’ Dave? Crimson Topaz!
Dave’s munching Crimson Topaz AND applesauce! Crimson Topaz is a new apple variety that we are growing and Dave thinks highly of it. Dave’s usual go-to-apple is Braeburn, which is a sweet-tart apple with a really hard flesh. And that’s why he likes the Crimson Topaz. It has a firm flesh and with a not […]
