STRAWBERRIES STRAWBERRIES     Fresh Maine Strawberries is a sure sign that summer is here.  Check out our newest recipe for Strawberry Custard Pie.    
BOK CHOY BOK CHOY This is our biggest surprise of our 2013 farming season. I was visiting the Wiswell farm greenhouses this spring.  They has some small bok choy plants which they had started from seeds.  I picked up a tray of plants, just on a whim.  WOW !!  That turned out to be a great decision.  You can see that we just picked our first crop of plants.     Bok Choy is in the cabbage family for those who aren't familiar with this plant.  It's most often used in Chinese cooking.         
Fresh Peas FRESH PEAS Many local Amish folks sell their products at the Brewer farmer's market.  Our friends at Palmer Hill Farm grew these peas.  It's very important for us to know where our food comes from and how it was grown.  These peas will be a delicious part of our dinner tonight.    
ROSES FOR TERRI ROSES FOR TERRI   How could I tell Terri "I Love You". Red & White Roses was the right choice. Now Terri has two dozen roses to show her friends. I must tell you, they really look nice on our kitchen table.   Guys, you can't go wrong with a dozen red and a dozen white roses! ....Steve
