Clagett Farm Workshare Update

18Oct10

This weekend I did another workshare at Clagett Farm in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. You can see my previous post for more details about the incredible farm and amazing people that work there.

As we begin to enter Fall (my favorite season), we are seeing some great and exciting produce coming out of the farms in and around the this area. Here is a list of things I brought home with me after a hard day’s work:

  • Nova Scotia garlic
  • Green tomatoes (baby ones and big ones)
  • Swiss chard (just beautiful!)
  • Cabbage
  • Sweet potatoes (and sweet potato greens)
  • Okra
  • Watermelon radishes
  • Daikon radishes
  • Turnips

The things I am most excited to experiment with this week are sweet potato challah (to make french toast and paninis), baby fried green tomatoes (perhaps with a ravigote sauce), and a take on Jamie Oliver’s Italian bread and cabbage soup. I’ll report back soon with photos!

Oh, and my favorite part of working this weekend was nurturing these baby heads of bibb lettuce. They will be so beautiful in a few months:
