Enjoying the Fruits of Their Labor

Our local C.S.A. program at Mulberry Creek Herb Farm is in their second quarter.

Since it’s start up in the Spring of 2012, we have seen an increase in variety and quantity of produce. 

During our scheduled pick up time, it is not uncommon to find one of the farmers there and have a chance to chat about what’s in the take home bags, how to use it, what’s coming next, etc.  They always have a variety of “freebies” to take home from their excess and a chance to sample some things that I may have never known existed.

Fresh veggies for dinner from Mulberry CreekThis week we got a bunch of carrots, red and golden beets, all colors of green beans, onions, tomatoes, basil, and red and green peppers.  Some of the freebies included, swiss chard, more tomatoes, eggplant, and some little things that looked like miniature watermelons that you just pop in your mouth called cucamelons.

It just makes me feel like I’m doing something good for myself and my family when I prepare these fresh picked veggies.

A huge thank you to Mulberry Creek Herb Farm for all their hard work during this unseasonably warm and dry summer.

If you are nearby, join them on Sunday, September 16 for Southwest Sunday from 2-4:00 where there will be demonstrations on roasting chiles and samples from mild to “holy cow”.

Hi Mary, This farm sounds like it has everything...I've not heard of the cucamelons.

Rebecca, Thanks for taking the time to read and comment.  I just had a pick up again today and got two bags full of mostly things green....kale, salad blend, green beans.  Also got some different colored beans, red, purple and whitle radishes, tomatoes, potatoes and eggplant.  I love the surprise of what's in the bag. The cucamelons have become a favorite of mine.  They taste kind of like a cucumber, but a little bit sour.  They are a nice bit of variety in a garden salad.
