Crenshaw Melons are in!

Today the melon patch looked like a sea of yellow... a good portion of the crenshaw melons were ripening! We dropped everything and started harvesting before they got over ripe. A while later there are about 500 lbs of melon resting comfortably in the cool fermenting room of the kitchen, which doubles as our walk in cooler for harvest.

Some of the melon harvested today
We will be putting the melons in the online store for purchase right away.. these things are super yummy and healthy! The rest are super healthy pig food.

First crenshaw melon harvest... pure yum !



The first heirloom crenshaw melons are in! We tried some still green but almost ripe ones and they were good.... but these vine ripened ones.. excellent!

Its a bit like a cross between honeydew and cantaloupe. The flesh is smooth and creamy, very sweet and a light cantaloupe aroma. Perhaps the best melon ever!

These are intended for pig food, but we will definately be sneaking some for us and might even sell a few in the online store!

Early Heirloom Organically grown Cinderella Pumpkins in Stock now!

We have posted the Cinderella pumpkins for sale in our online store now... feel free to take a look and choose your pumpkin for an early pie!

These pumpkins are quite unique... in shape, texture, and flavor. Great for pies and baking due to their softer sweeter texture  And they are easier to deal with because the skins are soft and easy to cut plus the inside are almost totally solid for easier cleaning.

Here is a writeup from "allaboutpumpkins.com"

Cinderella
Cinderella Pumpkins are a unique French heirloom whose correct name is "Rouge vif D'Etampes". The source of their nickname it that they resemble the pumpkin that Cinderella's fairy godmother transformed into a carriage. This pumpkin is recorded as having been the variety cultivated by the Pilgrims and served at the second Thanksgiving dinner. This is our favorite pumpkin variety. There is something magical about them. Cinderellas make a delightful decorative accent for the fall season, but additionally their flavor is good for any pie or winter squash recipe.

As with all heirlooms, each pumpkin is unique in shape and coloring from red, to orange, to yellow, even white.   Take a look at the variety:

Every pumpkin is unique
When you order these in the online store here, they will be listed by nearest weight in lbs. If we dont have the exact weight in stock that you request, we will get as close as possible.

Time to get started early on baking!
