A message from Rachael:

Hello everyone,

We just want to remind everyone that there will not be a pick up day on July 29th due to the long weekend. Make sure you order enough for 2 weeks!

I think this heat is sapping my inspiration to write, so I'll give you a list of highlights for this week and go lie down in the shade.
  • We've arranged for shelled BULK peas in 10 lb bags this week. We missed out last year due to too much rain. I think Nina used to put 7 of the big bags in her freezer to last the winter and found that banging the bag to break off a chunk and adding to soup or cooking what came apart from the mass of frozen peas worked well. Andrew is looking forward to cooking peas into creamy curries this winter. The peas have no chemicals applied and they are ready to go straight into the kettle or the freezer. There are 1 lb bags available too for those with less freezer space or if you're just looking for a snack!
  • If you haven't looked at the fruit section this week there are some new additions. Peaches, early plums and limited apricots from Palatine. There are also bouquets of their famous roses in the 'plants' section.
  • Paul Bowman has bulk zucchini available starting this week. What a great opportunity to preserve or freeze. Anyone have favourite zucchini recipes to share?
  • We will be stocking up on Country Flavour preserves this week. The Brubacher sisters make jams, and other great preserves so that you don't have to! In addition we have bulk cases available to you This also means we now have more local ketchup...
  • Speaking of ketchup, it's hot dog season! We have all the fixings... Beef, chicken or turkey wieners, sauerkraut, ketchup, relishes, buns etc.
  • We want to remind everyone about the 100 Mile Spelt bread from Golden Hearth . the only truly all local bread with local spelt, sourdough yeast and Sifto salt from Goderich. We have not been able to purchase this bread recently as we have not hit the minimum needed. If you see 11 remaining, it's a go and they will make the bread for us!
  • We have organic and conventional raspberries available. We hope to have bulk available for August 5th pick up. They are yummy!
  • Whole chickens from Snyder Heritage Farms - Aura smoked one on the BBQ and it looked divine! What a great way to make several meals at once in this hot weather.
  • It is way to hot out to turn your oven on. Lena Horst will do the baking for you. Have you tried her new and improved homestyle fresh baked pies. She also has muffins and loaves!
  • Don't forget it is McKechnie week... Quesadillas are great on the BBQ with cheese from Millbank, and your choice of veggies. There are so many amazing farmers to choose from.
  • Aura is at the cottage this week and is making pizza on the BBQ with Golden Hearth dough, mushrooms from Pfennings, green onions from Paul Bowman, tomatoes from Florlane, homemade garlic scape pesto and chevre from Monforte.
  • Katahrina from Anna Tolazzi chocolate is on vacation this week, so I just stocked up on lots of her chocolate bars so we wouldn't go without. If you haven't tried them yet they are amazing!
Keep cool and keep the farmers in mind with this dry, hot weather. May their irrigation systems keep plants happy until we get some much needed rain! We hope that they and all their helpers don't overdo it in this weather!
