WHAT's COMING and GOING at RPFarm...
Garlic Scape season is very short, so enjoy them while you can! We are starting to harvest!
You'll want to chop them up and put them in the freezer for later because they are SO GOOD.
Scapes are very versatile and can be used just like garlic in recipes.
The possibilities are endless...
- Sautéd, roasted, pickled, added to soups, and more.
Hurray! Two of everyone's favorite veggies are HERE!
Zucchini and yellow Summer Squash are the perfect veggies for quick dinner side or healthy main dish.
So many GREAT ways to prepare squash!
To take a great quote from Forrest Gump about shrimp that also applies to squash "Anyway, like I was sayin', You can grill it, steam it, shred it on salad. There's uh, kabobs, casseroles, pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. That- that's about it."
If you love Asparagus and Scallions, GRAB some extras in your weekly bag since we are close to the end of the season and have maybe 2 weeks left!
Traditionally we follow with another onion after scallions, but sadly our supplier shorted us on early plants.
Prepare by scooping up more now since you won't see onions until about July or August.
Hopefully we can distract you from this pending end of season asparagus news and tell you the BIG news...
I spy NEW BABIES AT THE FARM!
Can you spot the newest members of the goat family?
Everyone is very excited about the baby goats!
Even the momma goats are clearly trying to keep the little cuties away from people.
No biggie. Even if you can't get close to them now, you can SNATCH UP goat milk products!
RUSH to Grab handmade goat milk products to your bag this week. These are always a pleasure to have on hand:
- Bath Bombs
- Both made without dyes or chemicals
- Caramel Sauce
- Goat milk has the closest molecules to human milk so it is very digestible. USE FOR: coffee, ice cream, apples.
