Summer squash's debut!
Welcome to Week Four! And look who decided to show up this week, the summer squash and zucchini. The picture above is of a Zephyr summer squash. I like the Zephyr variety because it is so beautiful-and that immediately translates to delicious in my mind. Green on the bottom, golden on top, what a treat. The flower is still attached to this small summer squash, as soon as it is mature enough to harvest, the flower will come off. It's fun to watch the bees buzz around the flowers, pollinating them, and turning them into summer squash.
We've had a wonderful week of weather. I wish all summer days were as pleseant as this week has been. We feel very lucky to be farmers and thank you for your support that allows us to continue farming. I can think of nothing I'd rather be doing than working outside in that beautiful sun and fields of abundant produce.
