Bee on Cantaloupe Blossom
The fields are blooming, and the bees are buzzing!!! If it wasn’t for these hard working pollinators, our labor would be in vain. I couldn’t imagine attempting to design a process to pollinate more efficiently than our local bee population.
We walk the fields twice a day, and you can hear them as they move flower to flower. In the corn field they buzz right over your head. There is not a blossom in the field that does not have at least one bee hard at work. We are grateful to our neighbors who raise the bees and bottle the honey they produce.
If you’d like to try some fresh, wildflower honey, let us know.
Pumpkin Blossom Full of Bees
Zucchini…zucchini…zucchini! If you have your own vegetable garden or live near someone who does, you probably find yourself with a lifetime supply of zucchini. Unfortunately, the supply will spoil long before it is consumed.
What to do with it? Sure, it makes great bread and an excellent door stop, but we’d like to share a recipe we discovered. Farmer J loves fried zucchini from the local hamburger joints and Greek restaurants. However, it never fries up as good at home. Besides, Farmer J is overdue for a physical and would prefer not to hear the doctor complain about his diet.
Here is a recipe the entire family loves (the kids request it twice a week). Vary the amount of chili-powder to increase/decrease the potency to your liking.
Ingredients: 2 Zucchinis; 1 Egg White; ¼ cup Flour; 3 TBS Cornmeal; ½ tsp Salt; ½ tsp Garlic-powder; ½ tsp Chili-powder; ½ tsp Pepper
