NOTES FROM THE FARM
Howdy folks, It’s getting hot outside!
This will probably be the last week of root crops (carrots) unless the last of our beets at the Urban Farm make it through the 90 degree weather.
Summer shares will contain a lot of the similar suspects – peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, okra, cucumbers, squash and melons in varying amounts. We’re hoping for a good crop of long beans towards the end of the season, too!
I thoroughly hope you’ve enjoyed your veggies the first half of the season. We made it through the heavy rains, and now we just have to get adapted to the hot and humid Texas summer.
Thanks for your ongoing support of local, organic agriculture.

RECIPE SHARE WITH FARMER JASON
Okra season is beginning, as is BBQ season, so why not combine the two and BBQ your okra. The above recipe comes from Bobby Flay, but our Farmer Jason has his own recipe for Grilled Okra that’s delicious and simple:
-Pour a little olive oil on okra (to preference).
-Combine in a bowl, equal parts brown sugar and chili powder, toss okra with mixture in bowl.
-Sprinkle salt, coriander (from your share), turmeric, and cumin to taste onto okra.
-Skewer okra, and grill until okra are a little charred on both sides.
