Farm Share Week 13-Aug 30-Sept 1, 2017

Welcome to week 13 of your shares! Sorry for the missed blog post last week with your box contents but I had a week old baby and it totally slipped my mind.  I had a baby girl-my first after 2 boys and I am over the moon with joy to have a daughter.  Here is a recipe for ground cherries in case your wondering what to use them for!  I’m happy to see Jennys note below because after being gone a week with giving birth/camping I came home to sadly see my tomatoes that had been thriving look like they were dying! I was super sad and confused and now I know I lost them to blight.  I have a lot to learn about gardening and I’m so grateful that I still have the farm share to rely on as our little garden hasn’t done well this year at all.

Hello from the farm!
August is coming to a close on week 13 of Farm share. We’re a little more than half way through Farm share.  We hope you have been enjoying your veggies and discovering new ones along the way. If a certain Veggie has you stumped, please ask Stephanie on the blog, shout out to us on Facebook or send us an email.
We’re here to help!
This week we have green beans again, celery, and ground cherries for the whole shares. We hope to have them for everyone next week. They are a sweet little orange fruit in papery husks that fall to the ground when ripe.
Whole shares are also receiving Roma and field tomatoes. I hoped to have these for everyone but most of the crop has failed due to blight. The constant rain makes the spread of the disease rampant.
Thankfully, like in any garden, though one crop may fail, many other crops thrive and we are able to offer you boxes of bounty.
Soon to come are potatoes! Have a great last week of summer!

About the Author


My name is Stephanie Hofman and this is my 5th year with the farm share program.
I am an earth loving hippie-follower of Christ-lover of all people and love to try new things. I am not a blogger outside of zephyr organics-so please keep this in mind as I continue to learn the in’s and out’s of what it means to create a good blog and to be a good blogger!

My family and I do our best to make everything at home from scratch, but we are not fully organic, non-GMO, nor are we dairy free or gluten free. I do my best with what I have and am slowly but surely making changes towards a more healthy lifestyle.

I try and keep the recipes that I share to encompass all diets-some will be desserts, some will be juicing recipes (last year I failed epically at my juicing fast-FYI don’t add ‘more kale’ just to use it up in a recipe) some gluten and dairy free-some vegan and many in between.

Most of the items in the box I am familiar with now-but a few years ago I didn’t know what bokchoy was nor had I ever heard of swiss chard-now they are my 2 favourite items to get in my box!

I’m a free going spirit who has taught herself most things and love to help others out since I’ve only become who I am and gotten to where I am in life because of the love and generosity of those who’ve I’ve encountered. I’ve never been very good at spelling nor have I been very computer savvy. Any feedback and suggestions are always welcome.

Thank you so much for joining us on this journey towards supporting local farmers and supporting the growing organic food movement. May your box bless you and your family all season long and I look forward to sharing my recipe successes and failures with you.
