Today at Midnight Sun Farm we harvested onions, shallots, okra, zucchini and cucumbers. Onions are my favorite to harvest. They make the most lovely sound when I pull their roots from the soil and they smell so strong. I had never seen okra grow before. It is very beautiful! I had no where to put them so I was stuffing them in my pockets.
A few days ago my friend Jess and I got together to make Peach Preserves with Basil (we used 2 cups of sugar instead of 4). The peaches were from Hardin Family Farms in Michigan and they we super sweet! This week I hope to get some blueberries...possibly for jam or maybe a pie.
