Home Grown Tomatoes

"It is difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts
while eating a homegrown tomato."

~ Lewis Grizzard



So far as we know, this has just not been a great year overall for home grown tomatoes with traditional growing methods in the mid-West.  Our tomato season has definitely been a trying one.  Yet, our Sungold cherry tomatoes are somehow flourishing and we are thrilled to have them for our CSA members!  We have rebounded from the early frost temps and this week is to be a warm and fairly dry one, so this translates into lots of cherry tomatoes.

Our winter squash is coming along nicely and the Easter Egg Radishes have been really beautiful and very popular.  All leading to the autumn CSA!  Next week is the first one of eight so if you have not signed up yet please contact us.

This week's CSA Box:

Potatoes
Red Onions
Shallots
Garlic
Leeks
Diakon Radishes
Zucchini
Bok Choy
Sungold Tomatoes
Heirloom Tomatoes
Rosemary or Thyme
Spinach
Lettuce Mix
Arugula

A great way to use the potatoes and radishes is in this roasted salad I have adapted from Noble Pig.

Roasted Radish & Potato Salad

1 lb. radishes, trimmed and quartered (reserve greens or use spinach/arugula)
1 lb new potatoes, quartered
2 Tablespoons olive oil
 Vinaigrette:

1/4 cup white wine vinegar
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh dill
Salt and black pepper to taste
(you can use your herbs from your box just as easily for a slight adjustment)

Preheat oven to 425o F with a large baking sheet inside.

Toss radishes, potatoes, 2 Tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl to coat.  Transfer mixture to hot baking sheet in oven.  Roast until golden, 20-25 minutes, stirring halfway through roasting. 

In the meantime, wash radish greens in several changes of cold water and spin dry.  For the vinaigrette whisk together vinegar, 3 Tablespoons oil, Dijon, parsley and dill in a bowl until combined; season with salt and pepper.  Stir radish greens into roasted radishes and potatoes and add vinaigrette.

"Home grown tomatoes, home grown tomatoes,
what would life be like without
home grown tomatoes?
Only two things money can't buy,
That's true love and home grown tomatoes."

~ John Denver Home Grown Tomatoes

Hi everyone... Am so excited to share my testimony of a real spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 6 years now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly cared about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr. Wale can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and I did it and he did a spell for me. 48 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. My family is living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr. Wale If you have any problem contact him and I guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. you can WhatsApp him +1(978) 406-9575 or Email him at : everlastingspellcast@gmail.com or view his website for more review https://everlastingspellcaster.website2.me/contact

I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me. Then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again.
