Notes on the box.

This is the last of the sweet corn for the season. This is the last of the cucumbers for the sesason. Late blight has arrived giving the remaining tomatoes just a couple more weeks…. dare I say what everyone already knows? I guess since school has started it’s safe to say it… summer is bout done. The good news is that fall broccoli is here! And there are soups and roasting and other cozy things to look forward to! Sigh.

Cosmic Wheel Creamery Cheese Shares.

Cheese curds! and Arcturus, which is an english style of cheese. If I made the cheese curds without pasteurizing the milk and then pressed them, you would end up with Arcturus. Enjoy it with some apples or honey or cured meats.

Recipes.

Roasted Tomato Sauce
a good way to use up tomatoes and you can also freeze and store it!
core and quarter tomatoes. Spread on a rimmed baking sheet or roasting pan. Add peeled cloves of garlic. drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and your favorite italian or another favorite seasoning (optional). Roast for an hour at 375. Allow to cool a bit and blend. You can add broth and cream to make tomato soup at this point, too!
