    Central Texas received a great welcome for Fall with a cool front that inspired everyone to get outside. As you plan your outdoor projects, here are some things to keep in mind. Here are some basic recipes that will usher out summer and welcome fall.

    • 2 cups fresh basil leaves, packed
    • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    • 1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    • 3 tablespoons pine nuts or walnuts or experiment with other types
    • 3 garlic cloves, finely minced
    Pulse basil leaves in food processor until evenly chopped, add nuts, then cheese. Add olive oil to the ingredients while pulsing, until the mixture has a smooth, paste-like consistency.

    Use immediately or freeze for use all year long and as gifts at Christmas. Makes 2 1/2 cups

    As you heard, I have been appointed new regional director. Region 2 has always been a strong, dedicated community of members. I look forward to visiting with you and please feel free to email me with comments or questions.

    For our summer summary...despite the mild summer we have had, we are all still battling the drought. We have also lost our mentor and friend, Jeremiah Cunningham of Coyote Creek Farm and Feed Mill. In the urban areas, some of our fellow farm members have faced challenges with ordinances and community disagreements. 

    I will post more news and links in the upcoming months. You can always check our facebook page for community post. I hope everyone gets rain and some relief from the heat.

    We (the TOFGA Board) hope that the new website will encourage members to be more involved with the organization, and will improve communication between the TOFGA Board and TOFGA members. We do not want to operate in a vacuum - we want to know what you think, and how TOFGA can better serve your needs.


    Please visit often to see what is happening around the state and in your Region.  I will attempt to post a weekly blog and keep you informed about what we are doing, and events we are planning.  Take the time to comment and give your feedback on these blog posts, or in the Testing area of the website.  Your opinion matters to us.


    This afternoon is the quarterly in-person Region 2 Leadership Team Meeting as well as the quarterly Region 2 Members Meeting at the Georgetown Library.  I hope we will have a good turnout, as this promises to be a fun and exciting event.  After our business meeting at the library, we will tour the new Monument Market and then visit over an early dinner at the Monument Cafe.


    I will try to post another blog this evening to give everyone a report about how the meeting went.  I hope to see you in Georgetown!
