Bringing in the Sheaves. And More Sheaves. And Yet More Sheaves..

This is the time of year when the farmshare is at its height, and physically lifting the share becomes a planning operation. 

Yesterday's looks like this:




raw material for redskin potato salad, corn chowder, spaghetti sauce, shredded zucchini for bread, broccoli for steaming, bell peppers for stuffing and stirfry, and eggplant gift for neighbors. 

My farmshare will take me right through to next March without buying any vegetables other than carrots and celery, which won't grow around here. But between here and there is a lot of activity in the kitchen.  Good thing I sharpened my chef's knife this week.

Update on the oat flour: it makes great pancakes, too.  Oat flour and walnut pancakes this morning for breakfast, with a nice drizzle of honey.  Makes it worth getting up in the morning.

We get our share box next week - it's not as great as yours though. When we were on the way home from our trip today we picked up some cukes - dill pickling is on the agenda for tomorrow. Also treated ourselves to a dehydrator and will be getting at least a couple of baskets of tomatoes to dry for winter. Peaches too!

That's a great share. Pancakes sound yummy too.

Looks like you'll be busy! I've never done a farmshare, but I do get carried away at the farmers markets from time to time.
