Ok - It's the height of the homegrown produce season. That really sweet sweet corn called Mirai is available right now. For all of you who are confused by the green bag phenomenon, Sue has written a poem:
It's grown at the Red Barn
But we have no green yarn
So we've omitted the mesh bag
And lowered the price tag!
Really - it tastes just as good when you take it home in a plastic bag!!
Also - our own sweet tomatoes are being picked. They taste especially good in a dry year. Let us know if you want a canning quantity (815-338-4343). That should be starting next week.
The muskmelons and red and yellow seedless watermelons are fabulous right now. Also available are honeydews & crenshaws. All homegrown!
Other homegrown vegetables: green & yellow beans, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, kohlrabi, beets, carrots, zucchini, patty pans, cucumbers, green peppers, walla walla onions, pickles.
There is also a small amount of Illinois peaches.
We still need rain so make sure you are all doing your rain dances! Thanks!!
