Market Days

This week was the first farm frost. Last of the tomatoes, last of the summer squashes, basil and other summer lovers all done.

My list is still impressive however. :)

Carrots, celery, curly kale, corn, Choggia beets (sweet) and golden beets, parsley, dill, cilantro, and mint, garlic, Rose Finn and Ozette potatoes, broccoli, parsnips, rutabagga, and a whole pound of chantrelle mushrooms. Traded for: bell peppers, raspberries, pears, chicken legs, chicken wings, and farm fresh eggs.

Menu for this week:

New template from here. Isn't it cute?

Hey Val, I have several large zucchini that I had no idea what to do with! Thanks so much for the idea and the recipe. My son is so excited to try it! But I can't seem to find invisible kool aid. Where do you get it? Tricia

Garden Tyme: I got it at a weird random trip to Winco. lol... But I haven't seen it anywhere else. You can get it online easily. I have found a bunch on amazon. Here is a link:

Rachel: I got my template from here:


Most of them should be posted on a menu monday. I try to post whenever I switch. :) I like finding new ones though as it helps my kids realise a new one is up. They have gotten really good at making sure to use what is on the menu. It has been great!

GardenTyme: I dehydrated all the raspberries that escaped the toddler. I have about a quart for muffins later this winter. :)
