Grower Notes

2 HOT 2 COOK

Today, June 6, is supposed to be 7 degrees hotter than yesterday.

This is the time of year I begin the annual mind games to deal with summer heat . . . “only x weeks till mid September.” I choose mid September because the transition between August 31 and September 1 is usually indistinguishable.

With food being a necessary part of our lives there’s no getting around meal prep, BUT, you don’t have to heat up the kitchen! We hope what follows inspires you to enjoy summer’s bounty a little easier.

Market ingredients for each recipe are listed with the descriptions.

Top Left: Blueberry Spinach Salad with Honey Balsamic Dressing: Spinich, Blueberries, Honey
Top Right: Parfait Breakfast Popsicles: Blueberries
Center Left: Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich:Lettuce or Spinich Greens, Eggs, Fresh Baked Bread
Center Right: Italian Sub Salad: Danny’s Greens, Tiny Tomatoes
Bottom Left: Vegan Broccoli Salad with Blueberries: Red Onion, Blueberries
Bottom Right: Chicken Caesar Wrap: Chicken, Lettuce or Spinich

THIS WEEK’S GROWER NOTES

We have the best Growers in the Wiregrass! Please learn more about them on our Grower Page.

Grier Acres: The past weeks has been a tough one.  Still combating bugs on our plants combined with the struggles of no water source.  We do have large totes and a church allowed us to fill our containers but is labor intensive.  We are missing a lot of the rain that others are getting. Our squash plants are green but just not producing.  Our chickens and woodpeckers have been eating a lot of blueberries. Jeannie did snag about 1.5 cups last weekend for pancakes.  But we are GRATEFUL. Last year we didn’t get any. Must always see the silver lining.  

AVALON FARMS: It’s good to be back! It was great not having market responsibilities last week, but it seemed so weird. Most of the time I wasn’t sure what day of the week it was or what I was supposed to be doing. On a normal market week tasks are divided up over certain days to keep me on track. No market meant no market related tasks which confused things. Ha ha

Fresh garlic is SO MUCH easier to peel. I didn’t know that. It makes life so much easier. You can actually peel them with your fingers. No knife or peeler required. And there is no hard bit of seed plate on the end! The cloves come out shiny and very tender. If you smash one of these with the flat of your knife it is FLAT.
Working on the plan for the fall and winter garden. I’m open to suggestions. Anybody hungry for anything in particular?

MARY’S PEEPS: Mary sends greetings and that she misses her Market friends. She’s been occupied with taking care of family needs these last few months and asks that if anyone needs anything special to let her know.

Market stays open from Fridays 9 p.m. until at least 9 p.m. Mondays!

Thank you for choosing Northeast Georgia Locally Grown as a way to support your local producers. This online farmers market allows you to buy directly from multiple farms committed to chemical-free and local produce all year long! CHEMICAL-FREE means produce and pastures grown without synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or insecticides. LOCAL means within 80 miles from the market pickup locations (usually much much closer). Do you know someone who grows chemical-free food in the area? Get them in touch with us. Know someone who wants fresh food? Spread the word. Put the two together, and that’s growing organically!

PICKUP TIME is Wednesday from 5-6:30 p.m.

If you do not get an email ORDER CONFIRMATION right after you order then your order is NOT complete. Log back in and your order might still be there waiting for you to check out! If you have any trouble or questions at all, we are here to help; simply reply to this email or call Andrew at 770.530.3287

Also, free corn on the cob will be given out at the seasonal eating booth!
