Indigo Farms Update Sep 2
If you are interested in peaches this may be the last week to get them before the quality begins to turn more on the mealy side. Take advantage of the peach pound cake while it is still available. The weather has been difficult on many crops. The squash are becoming more plentiful. Hopefully the cucumbers will follow right behind. Okra is picking up and more beans and peas are on the way.
Grape juice is now being made. It is available in the store now. We will be making more soon.
Later this month persimmons and chestnuts will start being harvested.
Meanwhile I recommend that you try two salad dressings if you have not already. The Carolina peach salad dressing and the Raspberry Vinaigrette. These dressings really stand out. People are telling us that they use them on grilled meat as well. We have a good supply of honey and different types of molasses, cane syrup and sorghum syrup.
It is time actually to think about Fall. We have some nice organic striped great neck squash., butternut and a good looking crop of heirloom pumpkins. Some of these are available now. The striped great neck is a winter type of squash.
We are getting ready for the fall season and the fall events. We have planted lots of pumpkins and even though it has been a tough August for growing them I believe you will find the pumpkin patch very interesting this year.
We switch in emphasis this year is in StockPig racing. To help ease the feelings of NASCAR we are using the StockPig identity. We believe it important to not create unnecessary stress on anyone and do not want the fine folks at NASCAR to have any fears. But StockPig Racing at Indigo Farms has a bright new season. This years little fellows are from the same stock of two years ago. Those pigs still have captured a memory that stands out as the model you want all pig races to have. The mental knack of racing was prominent. The intensity with which they lined up to race was at times a little hard to believe. Noses on the gate, eyes wide open scanning for that little clue, for a second the look would truly captivating.
