Working Outside

The past warm weather, as I have been reporting, has really put a strain on our pruning schedule. In order to help out, I have been working in the highbush blueberries!  I did this last year as well, and I really enjoy it. There is really nothing like being outside on a sunny day, getting some exercise while working to get the farm ready for harvest.  At the end of days like this I am tired down to my bones, mostly because I am not used to being this physical all day, but I am also high on serotonin and endorphins from air, sun, and simple hard work.  Plus, it’s a challenge on my mind too.  I have to approach each blueberry bush and decide what needs to be taken out and what needs to stay in order to allow it to produce the most gorgeous berries for our customers.  It really is quite satisfying work and I am grateful to be a part of this orchard.  

Giardiniera Deliziosa

I am very interested in trying this new product from Kitchen Garden Farm. They organically grow all the produce they use for their products! This giardiniera is a spicy vegetable pickle consisting of cauliflower, carrots, celery, and peppers in an oil and vinegar brine. It is an essential component of two famous Italian American sandwiches: Muffuletta from New Orleans and Italian Beef from Chicago. It also makes a great appetizer or addition to a cheese board. 


Dusting of Seasonings

NEW PRODUCT! Warm weather = Grilling at our house. And I am so excited to try out these new spice rubs. I love the names! They are so appropriate for our store. The company, Weavers Dutch Country, was started by an Amish family in Indiana.  I think I’ll try the Apple Orchard Dust first? 

Snack Time

A wonderful perk of working here at our orchard is having a variety of snacks at my fingertips. I’m not going to lie, some days it’s Cheddar Popcorn and Wagoner’s Chocolate, but lately it’s been sweet red peppers dipped in Girard’s Olde Venice Italian Vinaigrette. Yum! Come pick some up and try it!

Cooper’s Corner

With all this nice weather, Cooper has been out exploring the orchard.  He loves to watch Chris…or be as close to Chris as possible at all times.  Here he is trying to help him prune the cherry trees.  🙂
