Chris has received calls that the Veggie Shack is locked. The rain and wet conditions have made the door to the Veggie Shack swell so you will need to pull hard on the door to open it. Ed Jr. did a great job of making it as air-tight as possible to keep the vegetables cool.
Please remember to bring your second bin with you if you haven’t already dropped it off. We have a few extra “fill-in” bins if you forget but we may have to use a shopping bag. The vegetables are coming along; some fruit on the plant is small but if we can get some sunshine we will see the quick growth.
Since Peaches and berries are in season I thought I would share a dessert recipe for four:
Peach, Berry and Honey Dessert
4 Peaches, skinned and pitted
1 pint Berries (raspberries, blueberries or other; your choice)
1 pint Strawberries
1/3 C Honey
½ t Cardamom or Cinnamon
Cut each peach into half and place in bowl
Wash berries, hull strawberries; set aside to dry
Mix berries and spoon into bowl over peaches
Mix honey with cinnamon and/or cardamom; drizzle
over the berries and peaches. Serves 4 generously.
You will note that many recipes we share will include honey. We have to promote our bees!
