Peach Season in full swing !


The peach season in Colorado lasts for just a few weeks ( late July through August ). Get as many as you can ! Freeze 'em, Can 'em, Bake 'em in a Pie ! Or just buy a pie from The Bread Chic ! Find organic peaches from Morton's Orchards at Croft Family Farm, or conventional peaches at C & R Farms.

Corn

Corn is also available in abundance. Peaches and Cream seems to be the variety that every farmer grows now. I do miss the "old" days, where people planted "early, "midseason" and "late" corn. "Silver Queen" was worth the wait !

Colby's Award Winning Dahlias are blooming. Get to market early if you want to snag a bouquet. He has changed his pricing a bit. Zinnias are $ 5.00 and Dahlias are $ 8.00.

MissAlyss down at Croft Family Farms as mixed bouquets.

Rocky Mountain Macarons returns with Cookies and Cream as their featured flavor.

Veggie of the week !

Growing up in the south, we had Squash & Onions every other day ! Melt some butter in a heavy skillet. Slice in Squash & Onions. Salt & Pepper to taste. Saute slowly until very tender and veggies are cooked down. Comfort food for anyone from south of the Mason Dixon line !

C & R Farms

BC & R

Barbie Lytle ( representing C & R Farms) has been bringing peaches to farmers' markets for ( almost ) her entire life. C & R Farms is up in Palisade ( a town on the western slope of Colorado). There, at high altitude, the warm days and cool nights bring perfect conditions for ripening fruit.

Barbie also has Pears, Apples, Plums, Tomatoes and whatever else she can throw on the truck !
