WEEKLY RECIPE INSPIRATION

Stir-Fried Eggplant with Basil

Are we tired of eggplants yet? Last week I used the tiny thin ones from our share to make this delicious and quick stir-fry. The eggplant quickly became creamy on the inside and browned and crunchy on the outside. Yum! 


SHARE THE LOVE!

NEWS FROM THE FARM

week 12

Fall is in the air with a crazy forecast next week of many lows in the 40s. That means all summer crops will slow down in ripening. I have been told the farmers almanac is predicting a cold and snowy winter. With a frost possible in the next 2 to 3 weeks and the days getting shorter fast the change can be felt on a daily basis with more fog in the valleys and less harsh sun. We still continue to plant some fall and spring crops such as leeks, onion, cauliflower, and greens both outside and in the high tunnels. Daily chores this week include cleaning out high tunnels, harvesting potatoes, and drying onions and preparing for storage.

The preparation for next year has begun already can you believe it? Paperwork for visas, planning new housing for our team, strategizing to figure how to deal with new overtime rules.

We hope to see you at one of these three events over the next 3 weeks:

Next week, September 8-9, is the Corn Symposium, where I'll be in conversation with Chef Victoria Blamey of Gotham Bar & Grill about the pursuit of flavorful corn and corn’s culinary use.

On 9/15 join us for the Summer Harvest Benefit Dinner to highlight inspiring story of persistence from our friends at Jeanmarie Chocolat farm from Puerto Rico. Details can be found on our Instagram account.

On Sunday 9/22 join us for the the End of Summer Farmer's Dinner Party honoring Chef Suzanne Cupps as she will be leaving Untitled. Her veggie centric dishes are well balanced and combine ingredients in exquisite ways without being pretentious. Reserve a spot on Resy between 5-9pm.

Norwich Meadows Farms
