The team at Our Local Foods have been fortunate to work as an organic food supplier to Sean Brock and the entire Husk team as they’ve made their mark on the culinary world. If you haven’t eaten at Husk, it’s a must on the Charleston restaurant scene. And, be sure to make a stop at the Husk bar, which is just across the driveway from the main restaurant; it’s a great place to relax and meet friends.

Our previous hometown was Santa Rosa, CA, which is located in the North Bay area of California, just north of San Francisco. Santa Rosa, like the Charleston area, has a great climate for gardening & farming, and while there, Maria was heavily involved in The School Garden Network, which is focused on introducing school aged kids to the wonders of gardening, fresh local food, and sustainability concepts. The Press Democrat (which is a subsidiary of the New York Times ), publishes in the North Bay and writer, Diane Peterson, wrote a great story on Maria and Our Local Foods last week.

We’ll reopen the store at the beginning of September, and will put an announcement up on the web as well. We thank you for your continued support and apologize for any inconvenience.

Summer Veggies coming in for some ‘cool cookin’

Cukes and tomatoes are the season’s sensations and we suggest you try a simple gazpacho this week to celebrate. We are now providing you with our organically grown heirloom tomatoes, and hope you will enjoy them.

Our tomato selection this year was chosen from Southern Exposure Seed Exchange catalog, all varieties that are time tested to withstand the humid hot south. Our efforts to baby them along seem to be worth it, as we are harvesting now in abundance. Much better results than last year.

About the farm…

As I am sure you know, the last week has seen record temperatures around the region. This is especially difficult on the organic garden, as disease pressure mounts and increased pressure from insects. We have had a recent intense outbreak of squash bugs that has been relentless. Half of our summer squash, cucumbers and melons have succumbed. A recent application of Diatomaceous Earth is our hope for mitigation.
Otherwise, things are looking pretty good!

This Week’s CSA

Your CSA box this week contains eggplant, heirloom summer squashes, heirloom tomatoes, tomatillos, green beans, cucumbers, garlic and lime basil! Enjoy!!
