Fresh Sustainable Produce - Grown Locally June 21, 2016
Summer is officially here! The days are getting hot and to beat the heat, the farm crew has started working early in the morning and again later in the afternoon. This week we are ushering in the beginning of summer by digging up the potatoes. They will need a few weeks to cure before we put them into the shares. Even though the summer solstice was only yesterday, Cane Creek Farm’s summer season is half over; can you believe it?! Summer and Fall shares run for 12 weeks each, and the last summer pickup is August 3. If you have been happy with your food and would like to enjoy tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce and greens into August, as well as share in our autumn bounty of field peas, peppers, okra, sweet potatoes and eggplant (to name a few), please visit our website to reserve your spot in our Fall season. We also welcome any feedback you can provide to us regarding your experience. Please feel free to contact us at any time!

Zoodles and Beet Pesto by Susan
Zucchini or any summer squash make great noodles. You can cut them with a spiralizer, but if you don't have that gadget it works to cut thin slices by hand or to push the squash through an onion chopper. The zoodles can be eaten raw in a lettuce cup or as a salad. I like them cooked for about three minutes in a pot of boiling water, drained and served with tomato sauce and a big dallop of beet pesto. Yum!
