This beefsteak came across the Atlantic from the Vojvod area of Yugoslavia. It has a full favor and is juicy. It falls in the category of pin beefsteaks. This one is great for your summer salads or better yet a big thick slice for that sandwich.
I KNOW I AM A LITTLE LATE BUT THE COLD WEATHER GOT US OFF TO A LATE START THIS YEAR. ALL OF THE SUMMER CROPS ARE NOW PLANTING AND WAITING FOR MOTHER NATURE TO TURN UP THE HEAT, ESPECIALLY FOR THE TOMATOES. LAST YEAR MANY OF YOU WERE ASKING FOR MORE ACIDIC TOMATOES AND RED SO WE ARE TRYING 4 NEW VARIETIES TO SEE HOW YOU LIKE THEM. ONE IS CmKOVIC YUGOSLAVIA. yES IS IT FROM YUGOSLAVIA. ANOTHER IS FROM THE AZORES CALLED NEVES AZROEAN PLUS THE GOOD OLD MARGLOBE THAT HAS BEEN AROUND FOREVER. ONE SPECIAL ONE IS THE CHOCOLATE STRIPE WHICH IS RED WITH GREEN BLACK STRIPE. I GUESS YOU COULD CALL IT A BIG OLD ZEBRA.
This is William’s first year for honey. The hive is now two years old and the honey can be extracted. I know because I have bought honey from the stores before and I was not a fan of honey. However, when we extracted the honey from the wax combs and than filtered it and finally poured it into bottles, I must admit I tasted some that was running down the spout. I really liked it and even started dipping my pretzels into it. He only has about 70 lbs. this year as his other hive was just started this year. The hives need a full year to grow.
Hello and welcome to our 2012 Spring and summer market. Right now the only market that we are at is Riva Rd on Saturday Mornings. Our 4 varities of lettuce has been a huge hit. Katherine has been busy getting her heirlooms together and has a couple of new ones to you to try this year. We decided to hold the price on heirlooms again this year as well as with most of our items. We also will have okra this year as we decided to give it a try after many have asked for it. We will also be doing Riva Rd on Tuesdays once the crops start coming in and Piney Orchard on Wednesdays. Piney Orchard is becoming quite the market now with a goat cheese vendor and a new baker doing some Asian desserts.
Deep Cove Farm has our apples rolling out.. Unlike our peaches this year the infamous brown stink did not damage the crop. Also the winter squash is starting to mature.
