Notes from Chris upon returning to the farm

Moving on, what makes our tomatoes special, squash notes

Posted 6/29/2014 6:19pm by Sean.
An extreme hail storm and possible tornado (still under investigation) hit Tomato Mountain this past week, and we're still in the process of recovering. Winds upwards of 100mph lifted a hoophouse from the ground, many other hoops were damaged, and most of the crops that were planted outdoors were ruined. Luckily, no one was injured.

Chris will have a full update and discussion of the storm and its implications with the newsletter next week. In the meantime, take a look at some of the storm damage:

The mail carrier said he could smell onions in the air as he approached the farm -- that's because there were rows and rows of them, freshly sliced by the hail.

Mel looks on at kale stripped from its stalks.

Paul holds an enormous piece of hail. The ground was coated with them at the end of the storm.

Thanks for your ongoing support as we work through this!

 What's Cookin' 
While the storm destroyed lots of the crops we were planning on delivering in upcoming weeks, we've still got a great box for this late Spring season (and summer's going to shape up well, too). 

For anyone new to our frozen butternut squash, it's a real treat: it basically takes all the roasting, scooping, and skinning out of the process. TryButternut Squash Pasta Sauce for a pot-luck-able dish from our winter squash.

Do like we do and preserve the season's goodness: one of the best ways to enjoy garlic scapes is right here: Pickled Garlic Scapes -- pickling takes some of the intensity out of the scapes, leaving a delicious, salty, garlicky snack. 

Navigate over to ourLettuce information page for a quick list of great salad dressing recipes.
