Farm Fresh

Hello there!

Hubby is off on a vacay (staycation) this week, so I'm getting some kid help this week.  Yesterday while S & A were hanging out in the pool, I took H (who can't swim yet cause of her ear surgery) and her friend to a local U-pick farm.

As I pulled into the entrance, I noticed this sign:

Perfect!  This is my kinda farm!

This week the farm had peas, fava beans, yellow & green beans, fava beans, flat beans and zucchinni ready to be picked.

I gave H and her friend a bag...

(H also has her hand in brace from spraining on the weekend)

It lasted about 1.5 minutes.  There was a whole in the bottom and they kept losing their green beans out of the bottom, so they gave up and told me I was on my own.  Thanks girls!

Anyhoooo, I still came away with this little haul...

Green beans, fava beans and a couple of zucchinni.

I did this with the beans....

I'll go back in a couple of days by myself and pick some more to freeze!

What about the zucchinni you ask?  hmmm... It's destined for my fave zucchinni bread and the rest will be in the freezer for some more zucchinni bread.  I'll share my recipe with you later this week.

In other news, stay tuned for some changes coming from me over here.  I'll share it with you soon, I promise.

Also, stay tuned for a Backyard Oasis post this week.  I've been holding off, cause of all the little things that still needs to be done.

So have you visited any local farmers lately?
Enjoy your day!

We do the Farmer's Market most weekends, but usually only do the u-picks for strawberries and blueberries.

WE've been enjoying our garden. Lots of BIG zucchini. I made some yummy chocolate chip zucchini muffins! If you google it, I'm sure you can find the recipe. Love your blog!
