It’s week 9 of 26 weeks. And as usual this time of year the weeds have kicked our butts! While rescuing the herb garden this week from weeds, I was pleasantly surprised to discover some really nice basil plants. So you will have basil to enjoy with your tomatoes this week. We love fresh Caprese Salad, alternating slices of tomatoes and mozzarella, adding a basil leaf between each, on a large, shallow platter. Drizzle the salad with extra-virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Try it with Terrell Creek Artisan Goat Cheese available locally at Webb City Farmers Market and Oak Street Natural Market. Bon Appetite!
Other than weeding, we are seeding, transplanting, harvesting & trying to stay on top of the daily & weekly tasks of running the farm. And the rains are welcomed!
