Summer’s Bounty

By 19 August 2020

Summer Favorites Are Here

We can’t keep up with the abundance of fresh produce in season right now. From melons to heirloom tomatoes to unique corn varieties, the list is endless. Now is a fun time to plan meals around a trip to the market because it’s so easy. Build your meals with a rainbow or just eat a watermelon for dinner. There are no rules.

Ryan and Anna from Brown Bottle Farm are bringing some tasty Double Red Sweet Corn this Saturday. So delicious grilled or simply steamed. I love to bring a pot of water to a boil, drop the corn in and turn off the burner. Leave it to steam for a bit. Nothing fancy and it works great.
Despite a wet spring and delayed summer, melons are coming on in full force. RJ Farms and Sun Love Farm both have some delicious Cantaloupes right now. Brown Bottle Farm will be bringing a fun variety of watermelons called Janosik Yellow Watermelon. Originating from Poland, Janosik melons boast a yellow crisp flesh and a very sweet flavor.

If you’re looking for some unique options, Farm D’ICI has some great choices. Noemie brings Crenshaws, Canary and Casaba melons. Crenshaws are considered the sweetest of the melon family. They are beautiful in color, both inside and out.

Buy a few different varieties and have fun comparing them. Not a bad way to enjoy a hot summer afternoon.

It doesn’t matter how often you check your zucchini plants there will always be one who escapes your eye or literally triples in size overnight. Because larger zucchinis are a bit seedy and tough in texture, they make the perfect vessel to stuff or grate for zucchini bread. Grated zucchini also freezes well so you can have delicious baked goods even during the winter.

Melissa from Sun Love Farm shared her favorite tried and true zucchini bread recipe with us. I’ve added it to my must make list. You should as well.
LOU’S ZUCCHINI BREAD (from “gardening at the dragon’s gate” by wendy johnson)

3 eggs

1 Cup oil

1 1/2 Cups sugar

3 Cups grated zucchini

1 Tbsp vanilla

3 Cups sifted flour

1 Tsp salt

1 Tsp baking soda

1 Tbsp cinnamon

1/4 Tsp baking powder

  1. Beat eggs until light and foamy. Add oil, sugar, zucchini, and vanilla. Mix lightly but well. Sift together flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and baking powder. Add to egg mixture and mix until blended. The batter will be stiff. The liquid in the zucchini comes out in the baking.
  2. Divide batter into two greased loaf pans (9″X5″). Bake at 325 F for about an hour. Cool on wire rack. Cut into generous slabs and serve while still warm.
Ground Cherries are a funny little fruit and often ignored because of their strange appearance. The fruit is contained within the papery husk. They are similar to a tomatillo but are sweet with a tropical fruit like flavor. A great snack for kids and adults. You can use them in all manner of ways and there are plenty of recipes online to choose from. Right now they are prolific so there will be plenty at the market on Saturday Check them out and see what you think.
