Nothing like FRESH veggies

Today we went to this farm I have been dying to go to and just heard of here in Jersey. Specca Farms you pick farm! Our neighbors went and said we have GOT to go. They give you a knife and garbage bag and let you go loose in their 4th generation farm and pick everything from potatoes, beets, tomatoes, zucchini, kale, spinach, flowers, a bunch of different eggplant and peppers, beans, lettuce, AND more! We had a blast! Joe was NOT excited this morning but ten minutes in he was in his glory and amazed by all of the fresh amazing fruits and veggies. The staff is also so helpful and kind and let me tell you prices are amazing! The grocery store has watermelon on sale for $2.99 a pound we got ours at the farm for .50cents a pound! I mean you cannot beat fresh and amazing prices. All of this was just 30 bucks!!!!! We picked it from the plants ourselves too! LIKE COME ON! Look at the beautiful lettuce !

When we got home we washed everything of course and I made kale chips! Found a new fool proof way! I always burned them but this time I tossed them in oil and salt and spread on a sheet and baked 300F for 8-minutes rotated the pan and cooked for another 4 minutes and OMG perfect! I cut the rest up for salads and the mini peppers we stuff with prosciutto and provolone and cover half way with olive oil and bake until bubbly. So good! I love mini cucumbers! I eat them every day so we picked a few of the mini ones and I may go back this week for more! Then it was lunch time so OF COURSE I made the epic and ever popular Jersey staple sandwich. Tomato and mayo on low carb bread with salt and pepper! I also added a few slices of the fresh butter lettuce we picked.

I am so glad we all had a great time! It was a beautiful day and we will absolutely be going back to this farm. I still do not know how I never heard of them and they are just ten minutes away! If you live in the Columbus, Burlington, Bordentown area of jersey you HAVE to check this out.
