We’re finally seeing the fruits of our labor hit the farm stand! Our little part of Northeast Ohio has experienced an extended drought for the first half of summer and as a result our agricultural production is approximately three- to four-weeks behind schedule. But this week we’ve harvested enough to share the wealth!
Here’s whats on the farm stand for the week beginning August 14, 2023:
We have a variety of peppers ranging from mild to hot on the stand. Check out the Nada Penos – they have all the flavor of a jalapeno pepper, but with none of the heat.
Many of our varieties of cherry tomatoes are just starting to blush and ripen. Tasty Treat, Black Strawberry, and Barry’s Crazy Cherry tomatoes offer up a quick, sweet bite. Roma tomatoes, great for salsa or sauce, are just starting to produce as well.
Ranging from pale-yellow to deep-orange, these tiny fruits are a delicious one bite snack. Unwrap them from their paper-like husk and enjoy!
We have an assortment of red, yellow, and white onions currently on the stand.
Zucchini and Summer Squash
Unfortunately we missed National Sneak Some Zucchini Into Your Neighbor’s Porch Day (August 8), but we’ve had a few out on the stand this past week. Crookneck Squash are coming on nicely in a variety of sizes this week.
Green beans, both Blue Lake and Hulk varieties, are just starting to come on in large numbers. Look for more and more to pop up on the stand in the coming weeks.
Pick up a bouquet of fresh Zinnias and Sunflowers to brighten up your day!
Vanilla-Bourbon Peach Jam
There’s no other way to describe it; our homestead made Vanilla-Bourbon peach jam is simply delicious! Made from sweet Georgia peaches in our homestead kitchen you’ll love this jam. Quantities are limited so get some while it lasts!
*All of our produce and flowers are grown right here at Headwaters Homestead. We don’t import these products from off the farm for sale, so you can be sure whatever you pick is locally grown right here on our farm and is in season.
