EVERY OTHER WEEK: Some of our vendors appear every other week. This is the week for Loco Bueno .
Swarm season is upon us ! If you see a bee swarm, pls do not call an exterminator ! Call a BEEKEEPER ! Mike of Whiteside Honey has offered his cell number ( 970 ) 663-2486 . Bees ( when swarming ) are NOT agressive ! It is an amazing thing to see in nature ! If you see one, react quickly. The bees may not be there in an hour !
Sincerely, Nan Zimmerman
Veggie of the Week
This time of year, summer squash is at its best quality and is quite inexpensive. It can be eaten raw or cooked, shaved or cubed, hot or cold. Use that veggienoodler you bought on TV !
Use them within three to four days of purchase for their best taste and texture. My go to side dish is yellow crookneck squash sauteed with onions in butter until it is almost all broken down. A classic Southern recipe!
Here is a photo of Jenn Miller with crates of onions fresh from their fields near Platteville. Miller Farms brings every vegetable that can be grown in Colorado ! Their $ 10 bag sales are famous up and down The Front Range.
Miller Farms has gotten back into the cattle business. Ask about their grain finished beef.
