Bye Bye Flowers for 2015

This week was the last for flower shares. Jill and Valarie have been providing us with gorgeous bouquets throughout the summer. It's just so lovely to sit down for a meal with pretty flowers at the table and we are so fortunate to be able to grow a beautiful variety on the farm. Thank you to Val and Jill for the beauty!

Open Farm Day
Open Farm Day is a province-wide event that creates the opportunity for participating Nova Scotia farmers to open their doors to members of their community. Josh and the team have been planning....join us for a backstage pass to meet your farmers, and really see where your food comes from. :) Josh is planning on haywagon rides, a petting zoo, and u-pick activities for the whole family. Please join us!

Recipes from Denise's Test Kitchen

Wondering what to do with your artichokes? Wonder no more. Check out this recipe for Roasted Artichokes with Lemon and Garlic. It's loaded with all kinds of yum.

This recipe for Creamy Chicken Liver Pasta calls for 1lb of chicken livers--exactly the amount in this week's Full Monty!

I made this plum clafouti over the weekend and it was delicious. A big hit at family dinner. :)

I made this mildly spicy tortilla vegetable soup earlier this week and have been enjoying it for lunch for days. It's chock full of veggies. A dollop of sour cream and some chopped avocado are really yummy garnishes. 

It's canning time. When you get your cucumbers and tomatoes and jam all jarred and put away, consider adding some other veggies to your pickle pantry--like these dilly beans

Got ketchup?


Happy cooking, everyone. Have a great week! :)
