Gooseberry blackberry heirloom tomato; red onion yellow onion our Confit was approved!!!
The confit debuted to rave reviews at the Great Barrington and Copake-Hillsdale Farmers Markets this past weekend, and for the moment it is on sale now only at Olde Hudson.
Otherwise….this has been a real mixed month of weather with coolness and rains that have felt more like spring or fall than midsummer. For the first time in recent memory lighting a fire in the wood stove (indoors) in the month of July felt appropriate.
But also, the classically spectacular long summer days of warmth and peepers and fireflies. Where getting up at 5 a.m. or earlier feels a gift rather than a chore.
Today was one of those days: for this last day of July 2017 it was what felt like a pretty classic, perfect summer day. Almost hot, a little humid, plenty of sun, and here in the country that delicious coolness to begin and end the day.
Whatever the season it’s high season still and the days, though growing shorter in light, remain long long long for the farmer and producer. So we’ll let the photos fill in the gaps and hope to write more next time xo
