‘Reuse’ and ‘repurpose’ are important words in our vocabulary. Farmers are known for making do with what’s available and this is just one example of how we do that at our farm.

We’re always on the lookout for things to make our job easier, more efficient, and cost-saving.

The next section of corn is ready for tomorrow!

Thank goodness, because we blew through that last one in two days. You guys must be going through dental floss like crazy.

Farmer Sonny brought ONE ☝️ ear of corn 🌽 into the barn this morning. I broke it into three pieces and shared it with Dad and Aunt Bev. It was so sweet and tender - I don’t think there was one kernel left behind 😂

Today’s late lunch is a little sad. It’s one of the last heirloom tomatoes 🍅😫 We still have an abundance of hybrid (standard sandwich) and Polish Plums for now.

This open-faced beauty includes crispy bacon 🥓 (from Adams; I bake a full pound, then I can have it on salads and sandwiches throughout the week.), a Georgia Streak tomato, Arugula (the good stuff from the farm), and my homemade, gluten-free focaccia.

Eat ‘em up, guys. Tomato season doesn’t last forever!

This is one of the easiest sauces to make while keeping all the delicious fresh tomato flavor.

Halve tomatoes 🍅 at the equator (not top to bottom). Grate them, cut side down, and discard the skins and cores.

Sauté diced onion and garlic in olive oil; deglaze the pan with white wine or dry vermouth.

Stir in the grated tomato and juice and let simmer for several minutes. Season with salt and pepper, and allowed to reduce a bit.

Stir in al dente spaghetti (any shape will do) and simmer, stirring occasionally, allowing the pasta to finish cooking as it absorbs the salty tomato juices. Add copious amounts of torn basil.

I like to add roasted or grilled veggies to this. Sometimes I add cubes of fresh mozzarella or small burrata or even creamy ricotta. Top with your favorite hard grating cheese.

Tomato season will be coming to an end soon. Nighttime temps in the 40s tell the plant it’s time to finish up.

Get a bunch of Polish Plums, Heirlooms, etc. at the farm stand today 9am-2pm.

The steamy summer weather has been a real drain on all of us. I don’t know about you, but I have found myself seeking comfort in the air conditioning whenever possible.

One glimmer of light that I DON’T mind is the sweet, juicy watermelon we have been growing since May.

Not that it needs any help, but I enhanced my evening snack with the flavors of a margarita. I topped some cubes of watermelon with a few teaspoons of tequila, a squeeze of fresh lime, and a sprinkle of Maldon salt.

You don’t need much tequila to make an impact. If you have some favorites to suggest, I’m looking for new tequilas to try out!

Just LOVELY! It’s time for ALL THE PEPPERS. Sweet or hot, you’ll want what we got.

Crazy spicy 🌶 for hot sauce, jalapeños for poppers, poblanos and Anaheims for stuffing, Serranos for salsa and guacamole, Shishitos for snacking...

Dry them or freeze them for longer storage.

Today inside the barn 3pm-6:30. Friday and Saturday, 9am-2pm.

Sunday night dinner usually involves grilling and grilling involves a cocktail (yes, just one).

This image is bittersweet because it’s the last summer evening chat before Thomas started classes at SUNY Orange (OCCC for locals) today. Now, he’s a full-time student instead of a full-time farmer.

You’ll still see him at the farm stand on Tuesdays and select Saturdays. Thank goodness, because Thomas is a valuable part of our operation!

🍉🍸Watermelon Vodka Gimlet
2 ounces vodka (infused with homegrown watermelon)
3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 ounce honey simple syrup
Slightest splash of St. Germaine

Combine in a shaker over ice, shake until frosty, then strain into a pretty glass. Then, eat the watermelon 🍉

Back in 2010, I started a blog.

The FarmGirl Cooks was a way for me to talk to my customers and give them all the food ideas that I was only able to speak with them briefly about at the farmers' markets we attended. I added some photos of life here at the farm, too.

It was great fun, but a lot of work to keep up with, especially when we had so much to do on the farm and I had a 6-year-old boy to raise (my most important work).

I haven't done much on the blog in several years, but it's still online for us to read and use as a recipe resource. Mostly now, I bare my soul and any other thoughts that pop into my head on Facebook and Instagram. It's much easier, and I want EASIER at this point in my life.

What brought this up? This is the 11th Anniversary of Hurricane Irene. Irene was followed by Tropical Storm Lee a few weeks later. This one-two punch devastated not just our farm, but our entire region. We suffered more damage from these two storms and the resulting floods than we did from Superstorm Sandy a year later.

I have a series of Flood Posts on my blog. If you're interested, start at the link I've shared and move on to the next at the bottom of each post.

Seeing all of the photos brings back some pretty shitty memories.
• the sound of water rushing around my house
• the smell of rotting vegetation
• perpetually wet shoes
• very little bathing and flushing
• the constant hum of portable generators (no power for 8+ days)
• the loss of crops, home, possessions
• fear of what was to come, and eventually, gratitude that we averted further disaster

All in all, we experienced (yet another) devastating event and we came through it stronger and more resilient than we went into it.

Our family has been growing celery in the Black Dirt Region of Orange County since 1939. It’s such a part of him that Farmer Sonny can practically do it blindfolded.

We don’t trim off the flavorful leaves so that you can use them in your favorite soups or salads. If soup isn’t in the menu just yet, remove the top third of the celery stalk and freeze it. You can add it, still frozen, to your soup pot with excellent results.

Visit Bialas Farms at 75 CELERY AVENUE, New Hampton. Buy directly from our 4th generation family farm Tuesdays (3-6:30), Fridays and Saturdays (9am-2pm).

Looks like it’s time to “put up” corn for winter!

Boil for 2-3 minutes, chill in ice bath, then cut off the cob. Freeze in bags (Mark the volume or weight on the bags if you like to use corn in recipes.)

Farm stand open Friday and Saturday, 9am-2pm

special guest vendor Saturday: Black Rock Baker

I always said I wouldn’t post pics of food on paper plates.

Today there was no time for anything else. This Georgia Streak low-acid heirloom tomato was just too beautiful not to capture.

Homemade GF focaccia, mayo, bacon, tomato (salt, pepper, garlic powder) for lunch.

Farm stand opens at 3:00 today… see you inside the barn!

“Dad, can I help you pick scallions so you can go home for dinner? It’s after 8 o’clock.”

“I’ll pick ‘em. You can clean ‘em.”

And yet again Sonny is tail-end up in the field. There’s potential for a calendar here 😁😂🤣

Long story short, each corn silk that you see at the top of the ear is attached to one kernel under the husk. The silks are the conduit by which pollen (from the tassels at the top of the stalk) reaches and fertilizes each kernel.

If there’s a bad wind storm or rain (it was NOT rain in summer ‘22), the pollen doesn’t fall gently onto the corn silks.

🌽 No pollen to kernels = improper fertilization = bare spots on the cob.

Check out my Facebook LIVE tomorrow morning for specifics on how to choose sweet corn. OR… ask me in person. See you Inside the Barn!
