Farmer's Foreword

This past week we had a little cooler temperatures and it sure was nice! This week has been as hot and steamy as they come. One reason I started farming was because I wanted to be outside every day. When the weather is in the 90s with 95% humidity, I question my sanity, but I am grateful most of the days to be able to spend them outside!

I thank all of you for your support, whether by buying a share, sharing with others about the farm, working on the farm or any of the other ways that so many of you show you care about what we are doing. It is encouraging to know that others value the work you do. We all need to lend our support to those working to make this world a better place.

'Pick Your Own' Series 

We have offered pick-your-own herbs since we started the CSA in 2005,
then a couple of years ago we added pick-your-own flowers
This year we have added pick-your-own cherry tomatoes and in a week or so we will add pick-your-own muscadines

We have discovered that muscadines have a small but passionate following, so those of you who really like them can get your fill, and those that do not do not have to compost them. We will work on the walk way next to the muscadines in the next week to make them more accessible.
Lunch 'n Learn --

about how important these mammals are to our entire eco-system!

Class is $35, and registration can be found on the Cane Creek Farm website.  

Oven-Roasted Tomato Bruschetta

  • 6 cups chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 2 long baguettes, split in half and toasted
  • 2 handfuls fresh basil, chopped until fine
  • 2 cups fresh mozzarella, shredded
  1. Toss tomatoes and garlic in oil and place on baking sheet. Roast at 325 degrees for about an hour, or until they're soft.
  2. Combine tomatoes with vinegar, basil, salt, and pepper, and spread on baguettes. Top with a sprinkling of mozzarella and broil until cheese is bubbly.

Hot Chile Oil 

The peppers in your share today can be used to make hot chile oil. 

This is a simple process, so take a few minutes to put some in the frig. 
  1.  Wash and poke holes in the peppers.  Put them in a small glass jar and fill with vegetable oil.
  2. Cutting the peppers up and removing the seeds will increase flavor but decrease heat. 
  3. Keep in the refrigerator and the peppers will flavor the oil. 
You can use as much or little as you want to flavor most anything.

There are more elaborate recipes on the internet if you want a fancier product.

 These peppers came from Eva's garden.
