Have you ever had lamb? This is the first leg of lamb I ever cooked. It was absolutely delicious. The most tender meat I have ever had and there is not one thing I would have changed about the flavor. It is now my families favorite meat!
Rolling Hills Farm Fall Season CSA- 10 weeks of organically grown heirloom vegetables, herbs and flowers.
Today I delivered the last basket of our Fall season. I'm so grateful for the mild weather we had this fall. It sure made it much easier on us! Our Fall season lasted ten weeks. I thought I would share with everyone a little recap of all the baskets. Here goes!
This is what we call the "Big Garden". I guess we will have to call it something else next year when "the the "Little Garden" is complete and becomes the new big garden. It is amazing how well it recovered from the hail damage. We are so grateful! I can only imagine how it would have been right now if we hadn't got the quarter size hail. I'm sure those cucumbers (middle left) would be to the top of the trellis but you would never know that the tomatillos were down to stems after the hail. They are to the top of the trellis and as bushy as can be. In the distance you can see the strawberry garden. The strawberries that made it are doing great! They are sending out runners like crazy! I think we are going to recover some of our losses there after all. The sunflowers are about 10 feet tall now. The cardoon was another thing that came right back like nothing ever happened. The cardoon is on the middle right. It is the spiky, silvery leaves with the pink zinnias poking out from in-between.
Here we are at the final week of our regular CSA season. This weeks baskets included: cabbage, peppers (3 types), tomatillos, onions (2 types), garlic, green and purple beans, zucchini, beets with greens, eggplant, spinach, celery, tomatoes (3 types), basil, sage, tarragon, chives, carrots (red, purple, and round), cucumbers, Swiss chard, and a bouquet of zinnias and sunflowers. Above is the contents of a large share basket and below are some close-ups.
