Veggie Tips

A box full of fall and summer put together.  

Sweet Corn: It is very difficult for sweet corn grown at Full Belly Farm to avoid the attack of the corn ear worm.  We don’t use the strong insecticides that are available to prevent it from making its way to the tip of the corn where it feeds on the kernels.  If you see any evidence, just tip the corn and enjoy the rest of the ear, knowing that you are eating corn grown organically.

Black Eye Peas: After shucking the peas out of their pods, they can be used with some of the tomatoes to make soups like ribollita, or they can be slow-cooked in a crock pot with some bacon or pork.  You treat these more like beans than peas… There are many kinds of Southern beans, always called peas in the US South.  Fresh like this they only take about 30 minutes to cook.

Chard: The first Full Belly greens in a long time — planted just a few weeks ago and already we’re picking them!
