Hi everyone, 

There is so much going on I do not know where to begin. Crops are coming in like gang busters. What are gang busters and how do they come in? Wait a second; I have to go Google. …. Hi, I’m back. Here is what Wikipedia has to say…”Gang Busters was an American dramatic radio program heralded as "the only national program that brings you authentic police case histories." It premiered as G-Men, sponsored by Chevrolet, on July 20, 1935.

After the title was changed to Gang Busters January 15, 1936, the show had a 21-year run through November 20, 1957. Beginning with a barrage of loud sound effects — a shrill police whistle, convicts marching in formation, police siren wailing, machine guns firing, and tires squealing — this intrusive introduction led to the popular catchphrase "came on like Gang Busters."  But I digress….

The wind turbine is operational and pumping out the watts. That is, when the wind blows. Interesting how that works. It’s like solar collectors needing sun or oil lamps needing whales. Now that I think of it; callaloo would make a good replacement for corn as a biofuel ingredient. Add 10% ganja and it would really have a kick. But I digress,,,

Remember folks; we have canoes available for rent to go out onto the pond and over to the beach. A  great summer activity.

I want to relay three other things, maybe four.  We have some great breads coming in from Charlestown made the old fashion Italian way using “biga”; a starter made from fermented grapes and wild yeasts. Very good.  We also have Petersboro ash baskets made in New Hampshire that are truly a functional basket as well as a collector’s item. Very reasonably priced.   Third, our coffee is now roasted in Woods Hole. Erik, at Pie In The Sky, is sending us some fantastic fresh roasts which we are serving as well as selling at a discounted price. This is fair trade coffee as well as lettuce-traded coffee. Fourthly, this Friday we will feature at the Vegetarian Buffet and Local Grill the duo of Pat Ryan and Will Slater playing melodic jazz. The meat of the evening will be smoked beef brisket with a Sangria sauce. We will have our fresh green beans in a mushroom-Madeira reduction and a summer squash sauté in Sherry. I myself will be having an olive pickled in gin served on a bed of iced water. See you around the farm!
