What’s been going on!
Summer break? Sort of, depends on how you view such things. The important part is that Jennie and Liz had full weeks away and are now back ready to roll fast and rested into the fall. We managed a few afternoons off and couple of side trips and dinners out but there was just too much to do to completely close the blinds and not look out towards the fields. Let’s call it the summer reset.
Anyway there are too many good things coming up that we have to be prepared for. Somehow August has become Peregrine Farm Dinner month. Three opportunities in the next week and a half to taste our products at three different restaurants and being the start of full blown pepper season all menus will be very pepper centric. Beginning tonight at Foster’s Market in Chapel Hill we are the featured farm for their monthly farm dinner, the menu looks very southwestern.
Next on Thursday, we will be working with Bret at Elaine’s on Franklin where he will have a series of special dishes using our produce that will be available along with his regular menu. He makes an awesome chile relleno and you probably will see some shishitos amongst other great dishes.
Lastly, Saturday the 25th, we are going to have a fun dinner at Panzanella in Carrboro where we are co-farmers for their monthly farm dinner along with our friend and graduate of Peregrine Farm, Joann Gallagher of Castlemaine Farm. This menu will be wider ranging because they have the bounty of both farms to choose from.
We are trying to catch up with things around the farm that did kind of sit for two weeks, especially the mowing as the rains have made the grass out of control, of course both mowers decided to break down simultaneously so that makes it kind of difficult. Planting for fall, final pepper trellising, the last of the tomato harvests are the main objectives, here we go again.
