Words can't describe the wonderful bounty which comes from our fields in August and September. Pictures help, and I hope they encourage you put the richness of Ontario's produce on your tongues for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even for snacks! Here's a brief selection of the yummies now available at our farm!
Thank-you for having the patience to read my entire newsletter, here's the shallot mystery:
Last year we grew shallots for the very first time, we'd seen them lots of times on cooking shows, and had to try them. It turns out we love shallots (and so do our customers), so we planted hundreds of them this spring. A few days ago, I sent the guys out to pick (pull?) them, and they came back empty handed. Now, they're easy to find, they look like onions, but with a distinctive pinky tinge and unmistakable tall thin shape. So I go out to show the guys where they are...and I can't find them either! I know I bought the seed, and I know it was planted...hmmm.
Bye for now,
P.S. Don't forget we are now closed Mondays (but we're always open holiday Mondays). Our website, hutchinsonfarm.ca, is updated every few days, and we're always happy to take orders. If you haven't seen our FaceBook page, please do, it has lots of photos and features that we can't fit in this email. It's like a quickie newsletter excerpt every day!
