Baby Cows!

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.
