The Cumming Harvest:  This week on The Cumming Harvest


This Week

Market opens at 10AM

ON THE MARKET:

There are over 400 items for sale on the market this week!

It’s a tricky time of year for Vegetables, that time when the heat and rain finally catch up to the garden and sometimes force it to shut down for a period. Despite the weather, you will find plenty of peppers (hot and sweet), eggplant, lettuces, winter squash, tomatoes, potatoes and more.

In the MEATS department, you will find:
Carrell Farms’ lamb, alpaca and water buffalo
Back in Time Farm’s pastured chicken products (listing on Wednesday only)
Southern Grass Meat and Indian Creek Angus grass-fed beef
White Oak Pastures pork sausages

Other items this week:

Ancient Awakenings kombucha, kefir and cultured vegetables

Eggs from pastured hens

Cultured Traditions’ Jun and cultured veggies

5 Lights Farm Honey

My Daily Bread jams and bakery items

Royal Rose Bakery quiches and pot pies

Southern Essentials essential oils and bath products

Buffalo Gal Grassfed Beauty products

The August WHITE OAK PASTURES order is due on August 13. White Oak Pastures raises pastured chicken, duck, pork, goat and more. For pricing or to place an order, come by the market or email Jennifer at thecummingharvest@gmail.com

SATURDAY VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
The Cumming Harvest is entirely a volunteer operation— we would not exist without the people you see each Saturday who help the farmers unload their goods and help you check out. If you love shopping at the market and have a few Saturday mornings a year to spare, please give me a shout! -Jennifer

New Field Farm's Online Market:  Onions and bears, oh my!


Greetings,

The tough weather continues, with lettuce and salad mix suffering the most. The heat causes the lettuce to bolt and the torrential rains either wash out the salad mix seed or prevent seeding in a timely manner. We should have more mix and arugula next week.

The Ailsa Craig onions are sizing up so we can offer some of those, as well as a few Tropeas.

We’re also offering Yellow Finn potatoes which are small to medium at this point.

There’s no limit on the carrots now.

The heat has pushed some crops ahead of schedule, so, for example, the purple peppers are starting to color up already which gives then a different appearance and a sweeter taste. The heat has also slowed the green peppers which don’t like to set fruit when temps get into the nineties.

And now for the good news. We’re seeing more Monarch butterflies than we have in a long time. We always leave milkweed unmowed for them and are seeing them lay their eggs on those plants, as well as seeing the caterpillars on the leaves.

And yesterday a bear appeared at the top of the field and made it’s way into the blueberries. It sat on it’s haunches and started eating and then got up and chose a different spot. When it spotted me it paused and after I said it was welcome to stay it decided instead to amble off into the woods.

It’s been a good year for barn swallows who return to the farm every spring. There were fifteen sitting in a row yesterday on a high cable that crosses from wall to wall in the barn. Their chattering, flying in and out of the barn, and swooping over the field are always a welcome part of the season.

Let’s hope for a change in the weather before the first frost!

Thanks for your orders.

Tim

Manchester Locally Grown:  Reminder: Ordering Closes at 10 pm




Manchester Locally Grown market





We always have a few new farmers, waiting their turn to join our market and offer their wonderful products to all our customers. In order to add more farmers, we feel it would be best to grow our customer base a bit. We want to be able to offer you and your friends some new local farm products.

The farmers and market managers would really appreciate your efforts to help spread the word about our fantastic market. What a great local resource for fresh, local farm products. Please pick up a few business cards to hand out to your friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Advertising is very expensive, and we want to use our slim market funds in a responsible manner.

Good morning!




This is just a friendly reminder to place your order online by 10 pm this evening.

Remember to hit that last “submit” button. I really dislike disappointing a customer who comes to market, only to find no order in their name because they didn’t hit the last button. When your order is placed, you will receive an email confirmation. If for any reason you fail to receive this confirmation, please contact Linda as soon as you realize it’s missing.

Come to our “Meet & Greet” on Thursday to have an opportunity to chat with some of the farmers and other customers. We will be set up from 4:00 till 5:30 pm with photos, extras for sale, and free samples. Please bring a friend with you!

Also please go to our Facebook page & like, comment, and share this week’s post. Facebook isn’t allowing me to post on multiple sites, or post multiple photos. So please help us spread the word. Surveys indicate that word of mouth is the most effective form of advertisement. Please help us advertise our fantastic growing market!

See you on Thursday!


Blessings,
Michael & Linda
