Summer produce is closer than its been.

Squashes have been coming in with other produce soon to come.
I made the following yesterday with our yellow squash, a bag of frozen Oliver sweet corn and tomatoes. A nice alternative!!

Yellow or Zucchini Squash Casserole
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 Tablespoons melted butter
4 med ears of corn (I used 3 cups frozen)
3 fresh tomatoes ( I eyeballed with a few more)
4 medium squash, thinnily sliced
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup croutons
1/2 cup grated cheese
dash of garlic
dash of oregano (I left this out)

Saute the onion in the butter. Add all ingredients, except cheese and croutons. Stir together and heat until bubbly. Lower heat and cover; about 25 minutes. Remove from heat and put into a 9×13 baking dish. Cover with cheese and croutons. Place in a warm over just to melt the cheese. (The mixture was so hot when I put in the dish, I put the cheese and croutons on and put in the microwave oven where it melted without energy)

Thank you

Thank you for another great strawberry season, the best one so far! Weather was perfect, plants loved the spring and kept putting on new, juicy sweet berries. But alas, all good things must come to an end. The field is now officially closed as we prepare for summer produce and begin to get that area ready for our fall crops – collards, cabbage and broccoli!

PORK BULK SAUSAGE
I have told many new strawberry customers about our pork sausage. We take pre-orders and are currently compiling a list. We will notify you when we make to ensure you are in town and available to pickup within 2 days of our making it. Pork and spices are the only ingredients used in our VA Dept. of Agriculture inspected kitchen.
SUMMER CROPS
We are anticipating opening up at “The Shack” the last week of June/first of July with sweet corn! Other produce – butterbeans, crowder peas, snaps/green beans, melons, squashes, tomatoes, eggplants and other summer goodies are growing near the shack and may be available from time to time. All may be pre-ordered.
FALL CROPS
Broccoli, cabbage and collards will be planted where the strawberries once grew. What’s better on your holiday table than this fresh fall produce and Oliver butterbeans!
PRE-ORDERS TAKEN AT ORDERS@OLIVERPRODUCE.COM. Please include name, product and best number to contact you at.

Winding down

I will be up at the shack off and on this week so bring correct change when you come as it will be the honor system when I am not there. $8 a 4 quart; $5 a 2 quart.

We have had a great season! We have been in full swing since May 4 with easy picking the entire season. As we enter the fourth week, picking has become a little more laborious and thus this will be the last week of you pick.

Thank you to all those who have picked and enjoyed this record season we have had.
