This weather sure doesn’t feel like May in Arizona, but the crops are certainly loving the rainfall. Luckily no snow for us! Hopefully it warms up soon so we can get all our tomatoes and peppers planted in the field.
Thanks to all of you who looked at and commented on our new website. I got some really positive feedback and found out about a few bad links and some areas to expand on in the future. The winners of the contest are:
Ann Goad, Lynette Nichols, and Keri Hunke
Come on by the market to get your hot sauce or flowers.
We will be at the farmers market rain, snow or shine Saturday in Prescott and Sunday in Flagstaff – hope to see you all there. We will have peonies this week and maybe next. We have some beautiful gigantic head lettuce and some off-the-hook frisée endive.
I came across an amazing way to cook the frisée and since it’s not an actual recipe, more like a suggestion I will just recount it here.
Sauté frisée in olive oil, garlic, onion, and maple syrup. Line a cupcake tin with strips of bacon, layer your cooked greens, then crack an egg on top and bake it. Sounds delish!
I don’t know if it’s possible to go crazy from picking sweet peas, but I was pretty close to it this week. They seemed to go on forever. Come on by and get some of these beauties, bring them to your elderly neighbor, or just stop and take in their awesome scent. I am pretty impressed that after 5 or so years, I am finally learning to grow these well in our Arizona climate.
