Hello!

We are loving these cooler days! Pretty strange weather for a Tennessee August, but we’ll take it!

We have some new veggies this week- the greens are back with our first kale harvest! Also, give sweet potato greens a try ! There are watermelons this week in the “fruits” section- don’t miss out on those before they are gone! We’ve got a lovely selection of peppers as well. The tomatoes have mostly fizzled out for now until our next round is ready- hopefully you are getting enough now out of your own gardens!

Did you try The Bloomy Rinds pimento cheese last week? It’s delicious ! If you haven’t tried it yet, you’ve got another chance this week.

It’s the time of year when both farmer and customer feel the “summer fatigue”, when we are just worn out from so
Much good weather and good food! We appreciate you supporting us each week, and hope you are excited about our changing selection every week- especially this week, with hints of Fall just ahead.

Another new item is decorative as well as edible garlic braids. Hang one up in your kitchen and have a nice supply of garlic !

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday!

Hello!

The dog days are here ! It is hot and humid out there- no fun to be outside unless a creek, river, or lake is involved! Hopefully we’ll get some rain and cooler temps this coming week, and that will bring some relief to the plants and the farmers!

We’ve got a great selection this week! Summers bounty is upon us! Still lots of tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, as well as a nice selection beans and peas. The berries may be over, but we’ve got those deliciously cooling fruits of high summer- watermelon!

We know you have many options this time of year- thank you for supporting Fresh Harvest!

Stay cool out there, and thanks again for your support!

See you Wednesday!

Hummus With Roasted Tomatoes And Almonds.
from Bon Appetit

This is an easy and delicious lunch or dinner along with some of Dozen Bakery’s fresh baked bread!

Preheat oven to 350°. Toast almonds on a rimmed baking sheet, tossing once, until slightly darkened in color and fragrant, 7–10 minutes. Let cool, then coarsely chop. Reduce oven temperature to 250°.
Toss tomatoes, thyme, and garlic with 1 Tbsp. oil on a clean rimmed baking sheet; season with salt. Roast until tomatoes are softened and shriveled but not mushy, 1–1½ hours; pluck out thyme and garlic and discard (makes about 2¼ cups).
Spread hummus on a plate and top with about 1 cup roasted tomatoes (reserve remaining tomatoes for another use). Drizzle with remaining 3 Tbsp. oil and top with cilantro and toasted almonds.

Hello!

We hope everyone is enjoying summer! The days are hot and long and perfect for swimming, exploring, napping, and of course eating! Lots of delicious produce this time of year. You can’t beat summertime tomatoes or melons – in fact it is pretty pointless to try them any other time of the year!

We have a great offering of blueberry syrup from our blueberry farmer! This is delicious on pancakes, over ice cream, or added to sparkling water! Made from the same local and organic blueberries!

The watermelon has been delicious! We’ve also lots of great cantaloupe.

Remember all our produce and Market items are guaranteed! If you are not satisfied with the quality of an item, let us know and we will refund your money or replace the item. Especially with melons, it can be very hard to tell quality!

Thank you so much for all your support!

See you Wednesday!

Tomato Crostada with Thyme

Try something different than your standard tomato pie. Thyme and cheddar are really delicious with the tomatoes!

from NYT Cooking

FOR THE CRUST
1 cups all-purpose flour, more for rolling out dough
1/2 cup fine cornmeal
¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
10 tablespoons cold unsalted butter (1 stick plus 2 tablespoons), cut into small cubes
1/2 cup grated extra-sharp Cheddar

FOR THE FILLING
1 ½ pounds different-colored tomatoes, sliced 1/4-inch thick (or halved if cherry or grape tomatoes)
1 teaspoon kosher sea salt, plus a pinch
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
½ bunch fresh thyme sprigs, plus 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 garlic cloves, smashed and peeled
1 cup extra-sharp Cheddar, grated
Black pepper, to taste
1 large egg
Flaky sea salt, like Maldon

Make the crust: In a food processor, briefly pulse together flour, cornmeal and salt. Add butter and cheese and pulse until mixture forms chickpea-size pieces (3 to 5 one-second pulses). Add ice water 1 tablespoon at a time, up to 6 tablespoons, pulsing occasionally until mixture is just moist enough to hold together. Form dough into a ball, wrap with plastic and flatten into a disk. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.
Meanwhile, line a rimmed baking sheet with a double layer of paper towels. Spread out tomato slices in a single layer. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and let sit for at least 1 hour and up to 3 hours.
In a skillet over medium heat, combine vinegar, honey and thyme sprigs and bring to a simmer; let simmer 2 minutes, then transfer to a bowl. Wipe out skillet, then add olive oil and garlic. Cook garlic for 2 to 3 minutes, or until garlic is golden and caramelized. Remove garlic and finely chop. Reserve garlic oil.
Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly flour a work surface and rolling pin. Gently roll out dough to a 1/4-inch thickness, dusting with flour if dough is sticking. Transfer dough to baking sheet and return to fridge for another 20 minutes.
Heat oven to 425 degrees. Pat tomatoes dry with paper towels. Brush tomatoes with honey mixture (reserve the thyme sprigs). Leaving a 3-inch border, distribute cheese, garlic and half the chopped thyme leaves on center of crust. Add black pepper to taste, then layer tomatoes in an overlapping pattern, maintaining the 3-inch border. Drizzle garlic oil over tomatoes, sprinkle with remaining thyme leaves and lay the reserved whole thyme sprigs on top. Gently fold crust up around tomatoes, making a 2-inch border.
In a small bowl, whisk egg and 1 teaspoon water. Using a pastry brush, brush egg wash over crust and sprinkle top of crostata with flaky salt. Bake for about 35 minutes, until pastry is deeply golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Hello!
We’ve got some new veggies this week as high summer season sets in! This time of year the crops are plentiful but less diverse, as only a few plants can stand our hot and humid summer weather.

We’ve still got blueberries, blackberries, and wonderful melons! These are listed in the Fruit section of the Market page .

Remember all our produce and Market items are guaranteed! If you are not satisfied with the quality of an item, let us know and we will refund your money or replace the item. Especially with melons, it can be very hard to tell quality!

See you Wednesday!
