Welcome to The 1840 Farm Community Newsletter.  In this issue, you'll find a few of my family's favorite seasonal recipes along with a collection of a few Facebook pages straight from my news feed to yours.
The 1840 Farm Community Newsletter

Where has July gone?  It seems like I blinked and the month was drawing to a close.  Somehow I find myself looking at the calendar and noticing that August 1st is merely a few days away.

For me, July was a month full of time spent in the gardens at 1840 Farm.  The weather was a mix of incredibly hot, humid days here in New England followed by ample rain and cooler evenings.  That combination has translated into lush gardens and buzzing pollinators everywhere we look.

The weather and the bees have combined to give us a wonderful harvest for this first month of our summer growing season.  Our garden has provided over 45 pounds of fresh, organically grown produce during the month of July.  We have been harvesting raspberries, cucumbers, lettuce, and herbs daily and enjoying them in our favorite seasonal recipes.  Our heirloom tomatoes are growing larger and we're counting the moments until we can harvest that very first ripe tomato. 

I hope that your garden and summer growing season is bearing as much fruit as ours.  I also hope that there will be a ripe heirloom tomato photo to share with you in the next issue of our newsletter!  Heirloom tomato season is my favorite time of the year and I can't wait until we can enjoy that first bite of tomato still warm from the sunshine. 

In the meantime, I'll be adding new photos so that you can see what's growing in the gardens here at 1840 Farm. You can take a photo tour and see what's blooming and ripening here in the perennial gardens and the heirloom raised bed gardens.  I hope that you'll share with me what's growing in your garden.  You can share a photo on our community Flickr group or visit The 1840 Farm Community on Facebook to share updates from your garden or a great recipe for making the most of the summer harvest.   I can't wait to learn what's growing in your garden and cooking in your kitchen so that I can share it in an upcoming issue of our newsletter!

Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta with Basil

In the early days of writing this blog, I shared a recipe for traditional tomato bruschetta.  It’s a family favorite during heirloom tomato season here at 1840 Farm.  On days that we come back to the kitchen with pounds of freshly picked tomatoes, this is what’s for dinner.

How to Build a Planter Box for Your Outdoor Table

For our outdoor make-over we made this simple and inexpensive planter box for our patio table.  I chose to paint it turquoise to go with our wicker chairs, which we spray painted turquoise a while back after buying a spray gun.

Multiplying Cucumbers? Make Pickles!

Are your counters full of cucumbers?  Do you pick the vines clean in the morning, only to find twice as many in the evening, plus three that must have hidden somewhere and have grown into monsters?

1840 Farm Raspberry Pie

Raspberry Pie

I adore fresh pie.  I love to make it as much as I love to enjoy a slice with my family.  One bite of a freshly baked berry pie and I am magically transformed to a time and place deeply imbedded in my childhood.  I simply can’t eat a slice of berry pie without thinking of the time I spent in my Grandmother’s kitchen as a young child.
