Squash And The Last Vegetables At Gorman Farm
Good morning! Take advantage of the great weather by making a run to Gorman Produce Farm in Laurel.
You get all the final vegetables -- tomatoes, lettuces, cilantro and basil. You get to pick a pumpkin. And you can check out the wildest selection of squash that I have ever seen. Cushaws, hubbards, sweet bananas . . . The Gorman people were pitching the idea that the squash can be decoration now and then eaten later in the fall.
Much of the produce has come from other farms, but it looks great. I picked up green tomatoes because, for some strange reason, all my tomatoes ripened this year. I'll fry those up early this week and serve them with a soup.
