Beet Greens

A perk of having a high tunnel is that you can eat fresh produce even when there is an arctic blast!!
Here is a delicious recipe that I was inspired to make earlier:

beet greens with almonds
1 bunch of beet greens cut into strips
3 Tbsp of oil or bacon drippings
1/4 cup almonds
salt and pepper to taste

Warm the oil in a pan and add the beat greens. Cover and let steam for about 4 minutes, until they are soft but still retain their crunch and are vibrant. Add the almonds and salt and pepper to taste. Serve and enjoy!

Turnips

Sometimes, somehow a few seeds get in a part of the garden that they weren’t intended to be in. And then they grow and they look unidentifiable but you still let them grow. And then one day you decide to pull them out because it’s time to replant for the fall garden. And you discover luscious, crunchy, gigantic turnips

Yes that’s my dog for comparison.

Early Morning Harvest

Everything was peaceful and quiet this morning; a repose before the stifling heat comes in. The perfect time to harvest the bounty of the high tunnel.

A Celebration

Summer is not truly here until you can bite into the first tomato: warm from the sun, sweet juice dripping down your chin, the burst of flavor popping in your mouth. We start those tiny seeds on Valentine’s day; patiently waiting and tending each sprout. And finally we are rewarded for our unending effort: happy Fourth of July…

Baby steps to success

Attention attention!!!!!!

Fowl will be selling their pasture raised poultry eggs at the Lexington rd location of Rainbow Blossom. After months of rebranding and reworking the business, which would not have been possible without the support from the Sacred Heart community, locals, and her family, it is so exciting to present locals with the option to purchase her quality product. Look for a vintage egg carton (3×4) and a logo that says freedom run farm. Any questions email her at eggsandherbs@yahoo.com
