‘Gold Rush’ and green zucchini
Yellow squash
Blackberries
Slicing tomatoes
Cherry  tomatoes
Bell Peppers
White corn
‘Yukon Gold’ potatoes
Farm fresh eggs
Fresh basil – for the tomatoes
Fresh chives – for the potatoes
Fresh rosemary – for the potatoes

The tomatoes are looking better since we have had a few days of sunshine – finally!  It seems like plants in the cucumber-melon family have been hit the hardest by the last few weeks of rain and cloudy weather.  They just have not been growing – hopefully they will make up for lost time and give us some sweet melons soon.  I want cantaloupe!  And my basil has grown more in the last two days than it has in the last six weeks.  I am happy about that!

Here is a recipe for this week:

Ginger Rice

3-4 cups hot freshly cooked rice – any kind works, brown rice is very good
1T butter
2-3 cloves finely chopped fresh garlic (or more if you like)
2-3 T finely chopped fresh gingerroot
3-5 T good tamari, shoyu, or soy sauce – bring out the good stuff
1/4 – 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese – not shredded, the texture isn’t right
a handful chopped fresh parsley (optional, but do not use dried)
