Moving Along

Well it has been some time since a post has been left here but it does not mean that things have not been very busy around the farm. What has been going on you ask? Well lots of planting and of course our summer CSA swung into gear last Thursday which also means lots of picking.
We are currently harvesting delights such as lettuce, garlic scapes and this will be our first week with peas. I have to say that fresh peas are one of my favorite parts of summer.
And what could be better on a hot summers night then some fresh garlic scape pesto? Well I'm pretty sure that it is a perfect choice for a hot night. Thanks to Liz S for sharing her recipe.


  • 6 garlic scapes, chopped
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup pecans
  • 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place the garlic scapes, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice, and pecans in the bowl of a food processor. Drizzle the olive oil over the mixture. Blend until the pesto is a brilliant green color and smooth in texture. Season with salt and pepper.
