Other things at the farm that are keeping us busy? As always, weeding the newer plantings keeps us kneeling in the field. And harvesting from the mature plantings keeps us doing squats. And getting ready for winter, cleaning up old plantings and the wreckage of the busy season keeps us running around. It sounds like a work out regimen.
Jim and I made fingerling potato chips last night. They were delicious. Just cut those sweet taters into thick discs, tossed ‘em in olive oil, salt, and pepper, and put them in the oven for a bit. Crunchy and yummy. Next time we are going to try just cutting the potatoes into wedges, like thick cut fries. Maybe we will put some gravy on them with some squash-cheese sauce I recently discovered. (Simmer peeled and finely chopped squash, add some cheese, and puree. Add some other things too, for flavor, ya know?) I am certain this is how to live the life.
Jim found mega choi in the field. Soon after this picture was taken, he battled it. Jim won.
Have a great week and see you at market!
