Farm News from Jane
Say good-bye to summer squash but not summer; this will be the end of it after eight weeks. The tomatoes are coming in like gangbusters and we hope to include more in shares this season. We’re placing larger ones in shares as well this season. We have some extra-large (1 lb.) tomatoes coming as well; we’re not quite sure how we’ll package them for shares. This next planting of sweet corn looks more uniform so we should have more to share. The fence is up around it but I did see some eaten ears outside the fence… Perhaps it was just hungry grandkids! The summer veggies are winding down but today I noticed that the leeks and the crucifers have grown a lot. That means we’ll be looking for broccoli soon. There is also fennel and bok choy almost mature that has not liked the heat so we’ll see how they look as they finish maturing. There are ripe pumpkins already. We grow a few small patches for squash blossoms for the restaurants we partner with and the blossoms that are not harvested mature into very early pumpkins! The deer have enjoyed some of them green but so far have not seemed interested in the ripe, orange ones. Some of the winter squash are getting large and others are already starting to ripen. The spaghetti squash is usually the first to mature but the last few years they’ve been a bit slow and we have even gone to the extreme of turning each one over to expose their green side so that the sun will complete their maturation. Maybe this year’s extreme heat will be enough; let’s hope so. One less job is always welcome!
If anyone follows us on Facebook perhaps you watched the video of Ben’s own fabricated “flame weeder”. Because carrots take weeks to germinate after direct seeding in the ground, the weeds emerge before the carrots making weeding a necessary but arduous task. This year just before they carrots emerged Ben “flame weeded” the planting and eliminated the weeds. It worked spectacularly; very little hand weeding (on your knees). It gives us such encouragement for other crops as well; parsnips are one of them. We direct seeded some and raised seedlings also. Both plantings are doing well this season. Germination is not terrific but at least they emerged. The transplanted ones look great of course as they are planted every four inches. It will be very interesting to see how they compare. One more crop to diversify our winter share boxes! We are working on our winter share membership forms and on-line enrollment for this coming season. We’ll let you know when we go “live”. We’ve had quite a bit of early interest in winter shares this year.
Hope you enjoy your veggies! Look for the Bright Morning Star in the eastern sky tomorrow when you rise as tomorrow is the new moon and will allow Venus to shine brightly in the darkness. Peace & joy, Jane

Layered salad is pretty self-explanatory; the idea of layering whatever veggies over greens and topping with cheese or even julienne strips of meat garnish with olives or hard-boiled eggs. So be creative and if you’re also entertaining start with a glass bowl. Start with your greens then layer with shelled raw peas, zucchini, and celery if it’s on hand, and green onions. Add a layer of Swiss cheese or meat julienne or finely chopped. Sprinkle with 2 tsp of sugar. Mix together 1/2 cup mayo, 1/4 cup sour cream and 1 T. of horseradish if desired until well blended. Spread evenly over the top. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of Romano cheese. Cover and chill overnight. Serve with the following Vinaigrette dressing if desired. 1/2 cup olive or vegetable oil 3 T wine vinegar, 1/2 tsp. salt. Pepper to taste (freshly ground is always a nice touch), and 1/2 tsp. of dry mustard. Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend well. Serve over layered salad. Garnish with black olives and sieved hard-boiled eggs. You may always substitute yogurt for some of the mayo or sour cream if you’re watching your fat intake.
EVA’S POTATOES (using Eva white potatoes!)
1T butter, 1 lb. potatoes, peeled and sliced, 1 T paprika, 1 tsp. garlic powder, 1/4 cup white wine, 1 cup chicken stock, 1 tsp. salt and pepper, to taste|Melt the butter in a large sauté pan. Slice the potatoes into 1/4-inch thick slices. Spread the potatoes evenly in one layer over the bottom of the sauté pan. Sprinkle paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper over the potato slices. Heat over medium high heat until a nice golden-brown crust forms on bottom of potatoes. Deglaze the pan with white wine and add the chicken stock.

CRISPY SMASHED POTATOES
1lb.small-to-medium red or yellow potatoes, ½ T, ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt, divided, 2 T olive oil, divided, 1/8 tsp garlic powder, 1/8 tsp onion powder, Freshly ground black pepper, to taste, 1 T chopped fresh parsley, chives and/or green onion
To prepare the potatoes, scrub them clean if dirty and rinse under running water. Remove and discard any nubby sprouting areas. Place the potatoes in a large Dutch oven or soup pot.
Fill the pot with water until the potatoes are submerged and covered by 1 inch of additional water. Add 1 tablespoon of the salt. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat and continue cooking until the potatoes are very easily pierced through by a fork (smaller potatoes are done around 20 minutes, and medium around 25 minutes). While the potatoes cook, preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and drizzle 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over a large, rimmed baking sheet. Brush the oil so it’s evenly distributed over the sheet. When the potatoes are done, drain them in a large colander and let them cool for about 5 minutes, until they can be handled safely. Evenly distribute the potatoes over the prepared baking sheet, and use a potato masher or a serving fork to gently smash each potato to a height of about ½ inch. (Thinner potatoes are more crispy.) Drizzle the remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil over the smashed potatoes. Sprinkle the garlic powder, onion powder and remaining ¼ teaspoon salt over the potatoes. Finally, sprinkle them lightly with freshly ground black pepper. Bake until the potatoes are nice and golden on the edges, about 25 to 30 minutes. Sprinkle them with chopped fresh herbs, and serve hot. Recipe from https://cookieandkate.com
