Week 4, 2015

In many ways July 4 is a midway point for the work of farming.  Most of the planting (with a few exceptions) is done for the year, and the heavy (literally and figuratively) harvesting of the tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, etc is still a little ways off.  It gives us farmers a minute to go to Belle Isle for a day, help a friend put a new roof on their house, or catch up on weeding.  Here’s what you’ll be eating this week:

garlic in hand

Garlic from Fields of Plenty and Buffalo Street

fennel
