… not the best decision on a school holiday, but still good to find amazing produce at a fraction of the cost of stores.
They were really busy today. Like, out of control busy. We still managed to find parking and spend time in the tomato fields, and in the beet field.
Forget getting anywhere near the apple orchards, or the pumpkin patches.
My husband wants me to pickle beets. So, we picked 24 pounds of beets.
I want to make one last large vat of tomato sauce to freeze, and I want to oven roast some more tomatoes. We picked 25 pounds of beautiful paste tomatoes.
I ended up with a couple of pounds of beet greens. Some frozen. Some cleaned for salads, and some wrapped up to use in borscht, which I want to make next week.
You really need to find a pick your own farm, and support them as much as you can.
Tomatoes cost me 65 cents a pound, and beets, 99 cents a pound. The prices are phenomenal.
We will go back and pick apples, probably next week in the middle of the week while school is in session.
Such a beautiful farm.
