Our Farm Salutes All Who Serve

Bob Evans Farms launched an initiative offering financial assistance to veterans or active-duty members with exceptional business ideas and a passion for entrepreneurship.

The new grant program -- called "Heroes to CEOs" -- will award three $25,000 business grants to deserving veterans who submit a video sharing their business idea and a plan demonstrating a solid business concept.
Here is our submission :http://www.ourfarmsalutes.com/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=promoted_070617

Please share, we'd love the honor of this grant.
If you're on twitter, please "retweet", "like", tell your friends. We need help to do more for people who have served our country.
(Funkadelic approved!)

Borage, alternatively known as starflower, is used as either a fresh vegetable or a dried herb. As a fresh vegetable, borage, with a cucumber-like taste, is often used in salads or as a garnish.

Amaranth is starting to bloom.
Flowers can be used to produce the amaranth grain, while the leaves can be used for greens.
The entire plant is edible, closely related to spinach and beets.

(University of Southern Maine scientists report that after planting spinach on toxic soil for 3 months, the lead level dropped 200 ppm. It's possible that amaranth, related to spinach, may possess the same bioremediating ability!)

Squash blossoms come in two genders: male and female, on the same plant. Only female blossoms mature into a squash. The males are there to fertilize them. The females usually grow close to the center of the squash plant, and have a small fruit at their base, making it easier to tell the gender.

We found a volunteer in our beans! Looks like a squash varietal.

Speaking of, we're always looking for people to volunteer. A great way to help feed local veterans and their families, learn about agriculture, enjoy the outdoors and get exercise.

Romaine, also known as Cos lettuce, named after the Greek island, is durable in the DC summer heat. Packed with vitamins, it's excellent for digestive system and a wonderful source of fiber.

As the warmer weather hit, our bok choy began to flower. Fortunately the little florets are edible, offering a peppery mustard profile. A great addition to stir fry or salad.
Bok choy comes from the Chinese name for "soup spoon" because of the shape of its leaves.

Our onion blooms had a lot of visitors today.

A perfectly developed onion will have 13 leaves and 13 rings of scales around the bulb. Each leaf corresponds with a ring in the bulb.
