RSVP no later than Sept 12 for the Harvest Festival.
U-pick items: Unfortunately, there isn’t much. The weather in May has
really screwed this up. But this is what Jerry thinks will be available.
Don’t forget there will be hayrides to the pumpkins patch and that there is
a $5 charge for roasting chilies.
If you are entering the canning contest we need jams, jellies, relishes
and pickles no later than 12:30
Children’s stick-horse parade will start at 12:30, then the races will
begin! Ribbons will be awarded for the best homemade stick horse and race
Hope to see you there!
We have been so busy picking crops to put into storage for winter; we have
not been able to get the garlic ready for planting. It needs to be
separated by cloves before it can be planted. We are asking everyone to
consider joining us this Sunday at 9 and again at 1. We will be working
all day until all the garlic is separated. We ask for as many hours you
are willing to help. If you are only able to give us an hour or two, we
will take it. Those of you willing to stay most of the day can bring a
lunch and join us in the house for an hour of food and friendship!
Your help would be greatly appreciated because if we do not get this
separated, it will not get planted and we won’t have garlic next year.
Thank you in advance for your time given to the adventures of farming! As
my Grandmother used to say, “Many hands make light work!” So please plan
on spending a little time on the farm working on a very important project.
Are you ever stumped by what to do with all of the produce in your weekly share? Or do you struggle with how to throw things together to make dinner on a busy weeknight?
I’ve teamed up with Tentiko, a Denver based organization who puts together fun experiential events, to offer a special cooking class. Participants will bring their produce from their weekly share and together we will create and cook a meal with fresh-picked, local produce. The class will be on Tuesday, 9/10, from 4-6 in the evening, and will be held in my gourmet kitchen.
We’ll pool all our produce and brainstorm a delicious dinner showcasing our shared ingredients, and I will provide additional pantry staples plus protein options to round out the menu. You’ll go home with a four- to six-serving feast!
I expect this classes to fill quickly, so head on over to the Tentiko website to sign up right away!
