Well, I didn’t sleep well, as expected. I flip-flop between extreme excitement that we’ve been selected by the USDA for high tunnel funding. It makes me feel like my dreams are becoming a reality to not just me, but the rest of the world too! Then, my feelings are dashed when I think about the city meeting. I have a sinking feeling that they’re going to say 2,100 sq feet is just too large. It is big, but what an impact it would have on our farm! I’m hoping that the worst outcome is that they say we can have it, it will just have to be smaller.

ZUCCHINI SALSA OF COURSE!

I was in zucchini OVERLOAD this week, so when I ran across this recipe, I figured I’d give it a try. I’ll be honest… It’s delicious! I call this version the “Hot Zucchini Salsa” because at the recommendation of Farmer Rich, I threw in a jar of jalapenos. (We don’t have any yet.) It’s a little hotter than I’d like it, but it is so good, the heat didn’t really slow me down when “sampling” half a jar. I have the full recipe for you on the “Recipes From the Farm” page. I encourage you to give it a try!

And to round out this crazy post, I just wanted to show you some other new things around the farm:

Then I noticed we had a cantaloupe growing! I don’t even know how I missed it!

Looks like we actually had two, but something was obviously more observant than I.

And, just because they’re my favorites:
