Picking season is in full swing. Tomatoes, cucumbers and basil are available from the greenhouses. Mixed salad greens,
arugula, broccoli raab, and heads of lettuce and Boc Choy are available from the fields. Strawberries are being harvested.
The chickens are popping out eggs daily. Speaking of chickens, if any of you would like a live chicken for stewing, they are
available as we have to thin our flocks. Come on by and make a deal; we usually take food in exchange (homemade baked goods,
etc) but will consider other items as well (DVD’s, beer coasters, etc).
Many of you, possibly all of you, have been asking when will we start the Jamaican Grill Nights.
Well we threw some chicken bones, owl teeth, and sacred stones (from our parking lot) on the table and came up with the
answer. On Wednesday , June 13, from 5-8 PM will be our first Jamaican Grill Night of the season. The price is $17.95 for
adults and $8.95 for children 5 to 11 years old. Vernon will be back with the music. We have not advertised this opening night
very much beyond our membership so it should be a reasonable crowd. The bones also said to buy 100 shares of NEXTEL.
On Sunday, June 17th will be our Father’s Day Lunch Buffet. The Buffet will run from 11:30 AM until 3:00 PM and the
cost will be the same as our Vegetarian Buffet ($13.95 for adults;
$6.95 for kids 5 to 11 years old; and 4 and under free). The salads, soups, pizza and quiche will all be there with the
addition of meat. We will have a grill set-up and be grilling to order some great beef hamburgers and cheese burgers, hot
dogs, and jerk chicken. There will be baked beans and corn-on-the-cob. Kid’s and spouses will also have the opportunity
to make a gift plant for dad included in the buffet price.
On Saturday the 23rd is our first Cajun Dinner Dance featuring the music of Buzzards Bayou. The menu is terrific and includes
Lemon shrimp pasta salad, corn and crab soup, chicken gumbo, Quiche Lorraine, Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya, and many vegetarian
dishes. The price for adults will be $20, children $8. This is a fun family event and well worth attending.
The weekly Vegetarian Buffet were scheduled to begin Friday June 22 but we have to shift the start date to Friday June
29. The main reason is that I am starting to get very confused....
