Two items showed up this week that I didn't get photos of, because I forgot to bring my camera to pick-up. Grrrrr. Beets made their first appearance this week! There were two varieties - the dark red variety and beautiful Chiogga beets, which are so gorgeous I am afraid to eat them. They are a lighter pink on the outside and pink and white striped on the inside. Garlic scapes also showed up this week. POTENT and GOOD! I sauteed them up with some swiss chard=delish.
I went back later in the week for our u-pick items, and brought my camera this time. I mostly had the farm to myself. In addition to dill, cilantro and sugary, crunchy snap peas, I picked more strawberries. Is there anything to be said - that hasn't already - about the pure delight in a berry that's still warm from the sun?
And now we know why the farm is called 'Mountain View'
