Farmer’s Note, week 7

Week #7
Dear CSA Member
Hot and humid.  Summer is here! I am just getting into the farm office after our Farm Work Visit.  Hearty members came to help out on one of the hottest days of the year.  We did brave the heat and were rewarded with a long swim in the creek.  Suddenly the heat seemed just right.  Thank you to the members that visited the farm.
Our farm and family have recently been featured in the “Pure Catskills Guide to Farm Fresh Products”.  If you go to www.buypurecatskills.com and then click on Online Version under the GET THE GUIDE heading you will be taken to the online version of the publication.  Go to page 58-59 and there we are early this spring when the plants were still in the green house and so were we.  At some point we will try to get everyone that works on the farm together for a photo, but it is really hard to do.  Seems like we are all moving in different directions all at the same time.
Members have been sending great links and ideas to pass along.  A member this week wrote:
“Hi-
I am a CSA member and love the weekly info emails and the recipes that are posted on the site.  I thought you might be interested in knowing about/sharing with other CSA members a 4-times/year publication that we have recently discovered that is full of information about local farms and sustainable agriculture, and includes terrific recipes that use in-season produce. It is published by the Edible Communities group and there are region-specific versions across the country.  In CT, it is called Edible Nutmeg:

If you have recipe ideas, please pass them on to Brenna at stoneledgefarm2@hotmail.com .  If you would like to order Coffee, Maple or Honey please log into your account on the farm website and place the order.  If you don’t remember your username, just send the farm an e-mail and we will send it to you.
Enjoy the Vegetables
Deborah
for everyone at Stoneledge Farm
