I haven’t written yet about the new member of the family since she was born about six weeks ago now. Meet Juneberry the heifer calf.
Years ago this farm saw many a calf born each year when the Kratzke family (who we bought the farm from) ran a dairy operation. But that was a long time ago now. To the best of my knowledge this is the first calf born here since the 1970’s….that’s pretty exciting after such a long stretch.
In the box:
- Japanese Eggplant
- Sweet Corn
- Leeks ‘
- Oranos Pepper and Anaheim: The orange one is sweet, the green anaheim is hot.
- Yellow Potatoes
- Lemon Balm: Yes, this is the weed-looking thing on the top of the box. Think of using in your lemonade or suntea – also nice laid over a baked chicken or fish.
- Yellow Summer Sqush
- Mix of Tomatoes: The heirlooms are cracked and ugly-looking, but good for fresh eating. I included a few romas, which are best for a sauce or cooking. Types included German Pink (pink), Golden Rave (yellow roma), Margold (blush red/yellow), Green Zebra (green with stripes)
- Watermelon: Some got a yellow variety, some an orange variety.
