CSA DAY is TODAY!
Fresh, Sustainable Produce - Grown Locally February 23, 2018
Celebrate Community Supported Agriculture - Sign up with Cane Creek Farm CSA today Click here
We are preparing for a new year with lots of compost, chips, high hopes and plans! This year we will have the incubator farmers (Farmers In Training) contributing to the CSA with some of the vegetables they raise in the front field. Hopefully, this will spread the work load and produce an abundance of good food. The store is undergoing a major remodeling effort under the direction of Becky and my sister, Carol. Carol will be joining our farm team this year, helping with the store, record keeping and flowers. Chuck will also be more visible around the farm and in the community as he helps with marketing, projects and tractor work.
We have planted more blueberry plants to increase the amount we can distribute in June and July. The fig trees did not get hit with ice (yet, anyway) so we should get a good harvest this year. Our cherry tomato trellis in the parking lot will be back with some new varieties as well as the beloved sun gold and chocolate cherries. We have many, many dahlia tubers, thanks to my friend Pat, that will produce an abundance of beautiful flowers August to September for CSA members to pick.
Eat Local in 2018
Join us as we eat from our local food shed this year. I have been wanting to do this for quite some time, but it seemed too daunting. But this is the year! I am going to eat produce, meats and dairy produced within 150 miles of the farm or at least in Georgia. I will be taking extra produce and freezing, canning and drying to have some variety in the winter. To keep me inspired and encouraged, I would like to invite others to take this journey with me. We can share sources, recipes, and maybe monthly potlucks. If you are interested, let me know and lets see what we can do to grow our local food system.
Morning Glory Muffins These are one of my favorite muffins that use lots of good veggies and fruit. 2 cups ww flour 2 tsp cinnamon 3 eggs, slightly beaten 1/2 tsp salt 2 tsp baking soda 1 cup vegetable oil 1 1/4 cup sugar 2 tsp vanilla extract 1/2 cup raisins or craisins 2 cups grated carrots 1 apple, chopped 1/2 cup nuts 1/2 cup shredded coconut
Mix flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon together. Combine eggs, oil, sugar, vanilla, carrots, apples, raisins, coconut, nuts in another bowl. Stir in dry ingredients just until moistened. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until the muffins test done.
