July 30th and August 2nd: August already?

This Season is Rockin'!

PYO raspberries are looking great and the flavor is OUTSTANDING!!!  The best I have tasted.  Don't delay--berry season goes fast!
Eggplants this week...Top: Galine--your standard looking, but above standard tasting (since it was grown here at Little Ridge!)

Bottom: Ping Tongue: Heirloom from Taiwan.  Great for stir fry and grilling.

The turkeys are out!  I let them out last week and they are so happy exploring their new outdoor life.  They are innocently stupid, very cute and noisy!  Some are finally getting big enough that they can't squeak through the fence...and luckily I think they are big enough that the cats won't get them if they do (although the cats are still lurking about with interest!)
The piggies are in a new spot!  Don't forget to visit them.  They are way out back beyond the hoop house.  From here you will see the bee hives too!
The cooler weather has brought relief to both the farmers and animals.  All were much friskier this week : )  The plants responded well too, the tomatoes are ripening nice, the green beans are pumping out beans and the cukes and zukes have slowed down to a reasonable harvest (ahh thank you!). 
This week's bounty: lettuce, purple bunching onions and scallions, tomatoes/eggplant/peppers for some, carrots, beets, green beans, cukes, zukes, summer squash, basil, cilantro, dill, parsley, cutting celery
Two great sites for recipes--
kitchen magpie does nice step by step photos and nouveau raw is all raw foods
...someone also mentioned she made zucchini parmesan....mmmm.
