Yes, purple potatoes! We’ve known that we might be getting purple potatoes ever since we were at the open house up at the farm. The open house is our chance to see how our food grows, try a bit of harvesting, talk with the people who work at the farm, and, we think most importantly, thank them for feeding us throughout the year.
While we were talking with Farmer Frank, we asked if there was anything new he was trying, and purple potatoes were on the list (so was another kind of potato that we hope will do well). Ever since hearing that, we’ve waited and wondered when those purple potatoes would show up in our shares. The wait is over.
So this week we received:
- Purple Majesty potatoes (7)
- Okra (1 basket)
- Corn (4 ears)
- Summer squash (5)
- Bell peppers (2)
- Mixed sweet/hot peppers (1 bag)
- Cucumbers (3)
- Tomatoes (1 basket)
Watch for something made with those purple potatoes in the coming days.
