It was fun seeing our vegetables appreciated and going home with people for dinner, as well as talking recipes and introducing some people to new vegetables (like kale and rabiole - two of our best loved products for those who know them!).
Speaking of foods, I've been hearing about groundcherries for several years but had never seen or tasted them. As it turns out, part of the land we were working at the farm this year had been overun with the cherries last year, so removing them was part of our weeding ritual in the basil batch. Of course I had to take a few of the "weeds" home with me and put them in the garden.
Some people L-O-V-E them, while others are of the opinion that they taste rather like vomit...
It turns out they do taste a bit like vomit to me, and a bit like tomato and purple fruit juice mixed together. I can't say I am a fan but I'm glad to have tried them out!
Does anyone out there actually like them? I can give you a couple plants next year if these ones self seed!
