OK, now it’s sunny, in the eighties, and we’re beginning to wish for the cool rainy weather again. Well, not really. We’re done with our summer show, which was rather unpleasant in the heat and humidity, but we survived, sold some stuff and bought more, including feedsacks and chenille spreads that I can show you later.
One of the worst things about doing the show is being too tired to cook when we come home at the end of the day; we always dig easy-to-heat-up meals out of the freezer for those four days. This time we had chili two different nights, and pizza the other two. So tonight we need a real meal again. I went into the field and pulled these this morning.
Two different kinds of beets, the standard dark red, and golden ones, red only on the outside. The great thing about beets is that they serve as two different vegetable courses, the boiled or roasted roots and the greens, sauteed or in a salad. I don’t know which we’ll make tonight, but we’re having flounder. Haven’t decided on potatoes or rice, but the potatoes are ready to dig also.
The super sweet corn is just around the corner. The stalks aren’t particularly tall, but they’re well tasseled and the ears are filling out. I can almost taste the corn already. We are so blessed with the bounty that comes from our little field.
