You will need:
- Wheat Pizza Crust
- Goat Cheese
- Corn off the cob
- Fresh Asparagus
- Wegman’s Thai Peanut Sauce
- Salt pepper
First I put cornmeal on the pizza stone, and then stretched the dough over the stone
Next I used a pastry brush to cover the dough with the Thai Peanut sauce
Then I crumbled the goat cheese over the sauce, and layered the onions
I toasted the corn kernels in a sauce pan to give them extra flavor, they were frozen corn from last season
Last and the best part fresh asparagus on top
Popped it in the oven for 20 minutes at 400 degrees
Alright CSA members it’s official… The Harvest Patch CSA will be veggie ready a few weeks early this season…
We were able to get lettuce and onions planted so early this year and they are so big and healthy and ready to be picked!
So the first CSA delivery of the year will be Thursday June 27th 2013…
Since the Thursday after that is July 4th we will take that week off for the holiday, and then begin our regular scheduled deliveries starting Thursday July 11th… Deliveries will be every week for the 17 weeks after that
So Members Yeah for a bonus week of delivery this season!
This rain on and of with heat in between sure has been wonderful for the crops… The cabbage is looking wonderful and growing strong…
However it is this lettuce that has blown me away… Are you looking forward to making farm fresh salads?
These beautiful rows are now all filled with tomatoes and sweet pepper plants… I was so tired when we got done I forgot to take a after picture… so enjoy the before…..
Tomato Varieties Planted
- Big Boy – Early Girl – Glamor – Lemon Boy- Sweet Cherry- Roma- Jet Star

This weekend brings the Harvest Patch crew much work in preparing the fields and planting veggies…. Joe plated sweet corn and ornamental corn seed last night…. He has the discs all hooked to the tractor to make trenches to hand plant the potatoes today… On Sunday the arrival of 48 flats of vegetables with 48 plants in each flat means we need to get 2,304 little baby plants hand transplanted into the soil….
If you do not have big plans for your Sunday and want to make the short drive out to the farm after 2 pm, we will be there planting, feel free to come get your hands dirty with us!!
Cabbages already tucked into the soil, growing strong
Hey I am under here just playing with my basket of toys while you guys work hard getting dirty!
There sure are many plants to get in the ground… We did most of this work last weekend, when the weather was so beautiful and warm…. and here is little A on the wagon full of plants, all hardworking Harvest Patch ladies wear pink Tu-tus to plant veggies… There are leeks to the right, Brussels sprouts and kohlrabi behind her…
A shot with a shadow…. we have Romaine, buttercruch, and head lettuces planted here… and a full wagon of cold crops ready to get in the ground…
Many Many rows (John is standing in the end off the rows you can’t see them all in this photo) of Purple, Early, Late, and Market Prize Cabbages getting a little drink of water from John… take note of the beautiful plowed earth in the back of the pictures, all areas waiting to grow beautiful vegetables for our CSA members
