We are happy to announce planting ground cherries this year was NOT a waste of time. We've been gathering about 3-4 1/2 pints a week and giving them to members in a revolving shift until now. We had a ton of them drop all at once and we're able to include them in the share officially!
Ground cherries, if you're unfamiliar, are closely related to a tomatillo and tomato. You remove their husks to reveal a smooth berry. Their taste is extremely hard to pinpoint, but we think it's like a pineapple, mango, raspberry flavor. But honestly each one tastes a little different. We love eating them raw, but we've recently found an amazing muffin recipe we'll post in an upcoming blog.
This week members received 2 eggplant, ground cherries, heirloom tomatoes, a bag of sweet potato leaves, garlic, a big bag of sweet peppers, a huge bunch of parsley, and a bag of basil.
Also, another revolving shift of goodies that we've been sharing each week are 1/2 pints of fresh raspberries from our Thackeray site.
