The tomato harvest peaked over the weekend with a 100 pound harvest on Sunday. I understand we are quite fortunate to have had such a bountiful crop as further south in Atlanta and beyond the heat earlier this summer stunted most all of the plants except for the cherry tomatoes. I planted the same number of plants that I always plant, 80 plants, but it seems this year they have been even more prolific! I started those tomato plants in February and it is always hard to know how much I will need for CSA and will be able to sell – one of the many challenges of farming.
Farm Food Favorite: Baked Okra
Cut okra into 1 inches pieces. Drizzle olive oil onto baking sheet, add okra pieces and swirl around. Sprinkle okra with your favorite seasoning (I like a Cajun blend) and bake in 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes until crispy. Enjoy!
I look forward to seeing each of you tomorrow at the CSA pickup from 10:30 until 12:30 pm in front of Butlers Antiques on Main Street. Please bring a bag for your goodies.
Until next week…
