So this is the last week we are going to be open this year. It's been a successful year in many respects here at Shiloh Run Farm and we truly do appreciate many of your kind words regarding the quality and taste of our vegetables.  I can honestly tell you, that we put a huge effort in providing you the best tasting organic vegetables each week.  

Although we are closing this week, Saturday being the last day, if any of you loyal customers need...

As you can tell from the above wordsmithing, coming up with engaging titles is not my strong suit.

I'm going to be busy today, so I thought I would be brief and get this entry out early.

This week, green beans and a new crop of picklers have returned to the harvest.  Arugula is doing well and radishes are hopefully available later this week.

Here's the list:

Arugula

Green Beans

Eggplant

Pickler cucumbers

Green Bell peppers

Red Bell peppers

Lunch Box peppers

Basil

Swiss...

What's new this week, is acorn squash.  This variety (Taybelle) is a large size (2-2.5 pounds) robust flavor winter squash.  As you know, acorn and butternut squash keep well in a cool dark dry area.  They can store for a couple of months under the right conditions, so you might want to stock up on these before we close for the year.

We also have a new crop of arugula coming in and hopefully by the end of the week, green beans and a new batch of pi...

JWS 6823 PMR doesn't flow off the tongue, but it is the variety of butternut squash that we are growing this year. They are smaller than your typical butternut, but they pack a great flavor.  They average around a pound each, so they are not large, but their size makes them easy to cook with.  Today was the first time we tried them and everyone loved them. We roasted ours today, but I'm sure most of you know how versatile these squash can be.

As we approach September, we start focusing on fall crops.  We will have some crops all the way to the end, others will start to fade, some new crops come into play and some old friends will be making their return.

I told you last week when I focused on corn, that onions will be available too.  Although I didn't make a big fuss about them, everyone seemed anxious to get them.  

A note about onions: Like garlic, they need to cure prope...

After coming to an agreement with the wildlife, the corn is starting to come in.  As with other vegetables I grow, I do have opinions on corn.  I've been growing sweet corn for over 30 years.  Up until 3 years ago, I grew the same variety of corn, simply because nothing could beat the flavor.  But three years ago, after several taste tests, I found a new favorite.  Sadly the name isn't that catchy since Johnny's Seeds still hasn't changed the names that it...

As we approach the middle of August, the fields are ripe with plenty of goodness.

We now are packing the pints and quarts of cherry tomatoes with 5 to 6 varieties including, Sungold, Black Cherry, Valentine, Pink Tiger, Chocolate Pear and Rainbow.  Different varieties of large tomatoes are coming in as well.  Were are currently harvesting Brandywine, Marianna's Peace, Coração de boi, Carbon, Big Beef and Damsels.  They all have their strengths and if you wan...

August has arrived and with it some new crops are coming in.  We do have this violet color eggplant called Dancer.  It tastes as good as it looks. These have a mild taste and people last year were very happy with this selection.  The red bell peppers are starting to come in strong as well.  Also, we have lunchbox peppers and spaghetti squash just starting to come in.  I will mention them in more detail next week, but lunchbox peppers are colorful ultra-swee...

Before we get into a tomato discussion, let me briefly tell you that the eggplant is ready to be harvested.  I'll highlight these next week, but I will tell you that these beauties are around 2 pounds and have a very pretty purple color.

Since many of you love tomatoes and they will be around for the next couple of months, I would like for you to take a quick tour of what we grow.  Please assume that all of these tomatoes have great flavor.  Each variet...

So this is the time that I've been looking forward to all year. Tomato Season is here. I am a vegetable snob for sure, but my snobbery for tomatoes is admittedly over the top. You can ask anyone who knows me; I won't eat a store bought tomato, I bring my own tomatoes when I go to a restaurant, and I will only grow tomatoes that have passed a stringent vetting process. The good news for you is that I won't sell any tomatoes that I wouldn't eat myself. As a f...
