The Terra Ceia Farms Holland Immigrants Settle in Pantego, NC


this aspect of his business. In short, through much blessing and hard work, the business grew and has now been passed to the third generation (or ‘first generation American’ as the elder Van Staalduinen was fond of saying). During this time the farm has diversified by adding row crops and field-grown nursery production - currently 1250 acres devoted to row crops and 250 acres for the cut flowers and nursery.

In 1938, Leendert Van Staalduinen

left Holland with his wife, Cornelia, and their 10 children. Originally destined for the small Dutch enclave of Eastern North Carolina known as Terra Ceia, the family ended up spending 5 years in Hamilton, Ontario Canada because of war-time immigration policies. Finally, the paperwork was in order for moving to the States, and in 1943, the family arrived in Pantego. It was here they would establish The Terra Ceia Farm to grow cut flowers. As was typical at that time, growers would import fresh bulbs to plant in the Fall and harvest flowers from in the Spring. Leendert realized that there was opportunity for selling bulbs as well as their bounty and in 1950 he started a mail-order business as a sideline. When he was injured in a farm accident in 1960 and unable to do much work, he devoted himself entirely to

The time is here for Summer Blooming Bulbs. At Terra Ceia Farms, these bulbs are shipped by from March 15 thru June 15 at the appropriate time for planting in Eastern North Carolina. These items are planted in the spring and bloom in late spring, summer or fall. As a general rule of thumb, most of these items are not hardy north of UDSA Zone 7. Even in areas where they will winter over once established, they still need the benefit of a full growing season before dormancy for best results. All plants are flowering size and will flower the first growing season. Terra Ceia Farms Owner, Carl Van Staalduinen shares some of his favorite Summer Bulbs and we’re sharing them with you. on the next page.

What are Summer Bulbs? Summer bulbs include: begonias, caladium , cannas , dahlias, gladiola, gloriosa lilies, elephant ears, liatris , nerines, oxalis, pineapple lilies, tuberose and tigridia. Some of these are tubers and corms, but for purposes of planting and storing, they tend to be grouped together under the term “Summer Bulbs”. When to Plant Summer Bulbs If it’s time for your tomatoes to go outdoors, it is also time to plant your summer bulbs. Most bulbs need a well-draining site, to prevent molding and rotting. Amending the soil with

compost or manure will help the bulbs grow, bloom and store energy. In general, you plant bulbs about three times and deep as their diameter. The package the bulbs come in usually tells you the planting depth for your specific bulbs. [3]Caring for Summer Bulbs •Make sure your bulbs are well watered, but allowed to dry out between waterings. •Keep the area weed free. Weeds will compete with your plants for nutrients and they often win.

•If you intend to dig and store your bulbs over the winter or if bulbs are perennial in your area, you should give them some supplemental fertilizer every month or so during the growing season. Any balanced fertilizer, low in nitrogen is fine. If you are growing your bulbs as annuals, no feeding is necessary, but a mid-summer dose of fertilizer will give them a second wind.


PANTEGO, NC Pantego, situated along U.S. Highway 264, is the definition of a quaint, country town. The town sits along Pantego Creek. Although its seen better days, the presence of Tidewater Electric Membership Corporation’s headquarters and Shavender Trucking (the motto “If ifs lavender, it’s Shavender” refers to its trucks sporting a lavender color scheme) indicates the town will continue to have a vi¬able commercial component. Pantego was once home to a school built in 1874. It opened as a private school, Pantego Academy. It became Pantego High School in 1907. It was converted to Pantego Academy Historical Museum several years ago. The museum, part of the Ye Olde Academy site, is filled with historic items from the school and town. The old building is on the National Register of Historic Places. The town boasts a community park near the

bridge that passes over Pantego Creek. The town’s municipal building once served as the first school in Beaufort County. The Pantego Volunteer Fire Department puts on its annual Mud Run each July 4. The event is a major fundraiser for the department. Just outside Pantego is Terra Ceia Farms, worldfamous for producing flower bulbs and other blooming plants. When the tulip plants are in full bloom, the areas around the farm are awash in vibrant colors. in April 7, 2014, was also an EF-2 It rolled along Pantego Creek, ran along one of its canals, Cuckold’d Creek, and almost hit a railroad bridge and Highway 264, it took a turn, hit through a small marsh, and split a house in half, and threw a truck over 40 feet high and threw in a nearby field, the two occurred 50 feet from each other, the tornado then curved

with J Paul Abrams

Let’s Bring the Beach to your Back Yard Grill…It’s getting to be that time of the year where we’re all ready to hit the beach, but there is still a chill in the air. So I’m going to share a few simple ways to bring spring early and the beach to you… When we think of the beach we think Seafood… No matter where you live there is a Seafood Market or retailer close by, I try to buy Local fresh where and when I can. So, take a look over the recipes, make your shopping list and then uncover that grill, for a trip to the shore without leaving your page 14

backyard.

Seafood Boil Crab, Shrimp, Clams, Corn, Sausage, Potatoes: There is nothing more fun than a good old SEAFOOD BOIL. Where you get a large pot & toss in all kinds of GOOD stuff & cook it outdoors, Things You’ll Need • a LARGE POT with a basket • 2 - pounds crab legs • 2 - pound uncooked shrimp • 4 pounds of fresh clams • 2 - pound smoked sausage, cut into 2 inch pieces • 6 potatoes • sweet corn on the cob, halved, frozen or fresh • 3 - Packages of crab boil.. (I use Kitcheneez Low Country Boil from my good friend Lisa Shively ) • 4 whole crabs (if you like)


• Lobster (if you like) Directions: 1) Get a LARGE COOKING POT with a basket. or Buy one of those turkey fryers , they come with the pot, lid ,basket & burner , you can use the propane tank from a gas BBQ., or it can be cooked over an open fire 2) Buy Local North Carolina FRESH SEAFOOD & VEGGIES. Clean everything in perpetration for the seafood boil, so it is ready to go into the pot. 3) Fill the pot 3/4 full of water & fire it up. When it is boiling add the crab boil & potatoes Cook for about 15 minutes. Then add corn & sausage & let boil for 10 minutes. When done remove everything in& dump it out of the basket onto a large platter or paper. Cove it with aluminum foil to keep it hot. 4) NOW FOR THE SEAFOOD Drop everything you have clams, crabs, crab legs, shrimp, you can even toss in some lobster if you like. Start with the clams first they need to cook a little longer Let the clams boil for about 4

minutes ,& then put in everything else & let it boil for 5 minutes Now dump out the seafood on to a platter or on to butcher paper or newspaper on a large table. We use sawhorses and plywood to make our table Arrange the potatoes, corn & sausage around the seafood and ENJOY May have a little melted butter, lemons, Nephew’s Wing and Hot Sauce, Nephew’s Ghostly Pumpkin Sauces make a great Cocktail Sauce. Whatever you like.

Grilled Shrimp Quesadillas Ingredients • 1 lb. shrimp ( I used 31-40 ct., raw, peeled, tail-on) - deveined • fresh limes (4-6) • Mexican blend or Monterey Jack cheese • grilled peppers and onions (optional)

• flour or corn tortillas • Pico De Gallo • fresh guacamole • cilantro Directions 1. First double-skewer the shrimp. You can use metal of wood skewers - whatever you have is fine. The double skewer keeps the shrimp from flopping all over the place when you’re placing them on the grill. Thread the shrimp onto the skewers, piercing once near the tail and once near the head. Keep the shrimp facing all the same direction and with a little space in between. 2. Squeeze about 2-3 tablespoons fresh lime juice over the shrimp. Brush with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Let the shrimp marinate for 15 minutes. 3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat and oil the grates. Place shrimp skewers on preheated grill and cook shrimp until they are bright pink on the outside and the meat is no longer transparent in the center. About 6 to 8 minutes. 4. Pull the shrimp off and chop coarsely. Gather up the shredded cheese, chopped cilantro, and tortillas and head out to the grill. 5. Place a tortilla on the grill


(do only one your first time so you can figure out the timing) and sprinkle on the cheese. I used a Mexican blend but Monterey Jack of even Pepper Jack would be great for a little kick. Add the shrimp, cilantro and whatever else you want onto one half. You want to do this quickly so the grill doesn’t cool down too much. 6. Once the cheese is all nice and melted (takes just a couple minutes) flip one half over the other. Now you can see all your grill marks! 7. Cut into thirds and serve with fresh Pico De Gallo, lime wedges, and guacamole! Yum!

Grilled Wahoo with Tomato Sauce Ingredients • 4 wahoo fillets, 6 ounces each (or whatever a good size is) • 2 tablespoons canola oil • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

• 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for finishing dish • 2 cloves garlic, chopped • 4 anchovies in oil, patted dry and chopped • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved • 1 tablespoon capers, drained • 1/2 cup pitted Kalamata olives • 1 lemon, zested and juiced • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh oregano leaves • 1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley Directions Heat the grill to high. Brush both sides of the fillets with canola oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Grill until slightly charred and almost cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes per side, (it will continue cooking in the sauce). While the fish is grilling, heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the garlic, anchovies and tomatoes and cook until slightly soft, about 4 minutes. Add the capers, olives, lemon juice, oregano and parsley and cook for 30 seconds. Transfer the fish to the sauce and let cook for 1 minute. Transfer to a serving platter and serve.

Hope Plantation Windsor, North Carolina

Historic Hope Plantation, restored home of former North Carolina Governor David Stone (1770-1818). Located four miles west of Windsor, NC, the plantation complex offers unique insights into the late 18thand 19th-century rural life in eastern North Carolina and the South. The centerpiece of the plantation is the c. 1803 Hope Mansion, Governor Stone’s stunning example of an academic architectural combination of Federal and Georgian architecture. Restored and opened to the public since 1972, the mansion is meticulously furnished with reproductions and an extensive collection of original period pieces.

Hanging at the Coast - In the Off Season written Jim Hinnant photographed by Jim Hinnant & Cindi Pate

Emerald Isle - North Carolina


Most people think about going to the beach in the summer, but there is a different atmosphere during the off-season with some things that can be enjoyed better. My most recent travels took me to Emerald Isle with my wife and stepdaughter. One great thing about going to the beach in the winter is the lack of crowds. You can walk up and down the beach and just enjoy the ocean. You can easily get that table by the window at that restaurant. Also, the return trip isn’t bumper-tobumper getting off the island. Emerald Isle is actually one of several towns on Bogue Banks near Morehead City, North Carolina. The beach runs east and west – something that may be a little strange for people that want to watch the sun rise over the water. Other towns on the island include Atlantic Beach, Indian Beach, Pine Knoll Shores, and Salter Path. Where one ends, the next town picks up. Emerald Isle’s population is about 3,000 normally and surges to about 50,000 during the summer – part of the reason I like going in the winter.

At the far eastern end of the island is Fort Macon State Park, the 2nd most visited state park in North Carolina. The 5-sided brick and stone fort with 26 casements was built to protect Beaufort Inlet from attack by pirates and foreign forces. Blackbeard was known to hang out in the area passing through Beaufort Inlet. The Spanish plundered Beaufort in 1747, and the British did it in 1782. There are too many details about Fort Macon and its history to cover here including the Civil War, but check it out if you’re in the area. It’s also a great place to fish and watch the boats go in and out of the inlet. (BTW…there’s a video of the firing of the cannons on YouTube I did on the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Fort Macon.) Another place to visit while on the island is the North Carolina Aquarium on Pine Knoll Shores. They’re open 9-5 most days including holidays with the exception of Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. They’re also known to not charge for admission on Veteran’s Day and Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday, but check that out for yourself to be sure. They also have special events for Halloween in October and Christmas in December. It’s

Roanoke River Lighthouse Edenton, North Carolina

Edenton is a town on Albemarle Sound in Chowan County, North Carolina. The residents of this first colonial capital of North Carolina love sharing with visitors its rich history, scenic beauty, and exceptional architecture. Edenton is home to three National Historic Landmarks, one of which is the state’s oldest courthouse, built in 1767 and still in use. Edenton is also the home of the Roanoke River Lighthouse. The lighthouse is called a screw-pile design because of its original support system. Each piling was literally screwed into the river or sound bottom so they would not pull out in heavy storms and hurricanes. The Roanoke River Lighthouse, now located at Edenton, is believed to be the last extant example in the United States of a rectangular frame building built for a screw-pile base. The lighthouse was in commission from 1887 until 1941.


Albermarle Sound Inner Banks North Carolina

The Albemarle Sound is one of the most unique sounds on the Outer Banks as it gradually transitions from a fun saltwater playground bordering the beaches to a series of mainland estuaries and streams that wind deep into the heart of North Carolina and even Virginia. Originally serving as an essential transportation route for the first colonists, the Albemarle Sound today is a mixture of fun and function, providing central Outer Banks vacationers with miles of waterfront terrain to play in, while also providing a habitat for countless species of wildlife.


Edenton Bell Battery Edenton, North Carolina

During the Civil War, Edenton would rise to regional fame as the home of the Edenton Bell Battery. In 1862, just after after the war had officially begun, a local artillery was formed under the leadership of a local attorney, William Badham, Jr., and one of their first orders of business was building an arsenal of guns and cannons to protect the vulnerable and highly desirable, (due to its waterfront proximity), town of Edenton from advancing Union soldiers. With limited supplies, the troops began constructing guns and cannons out of donated bells, plucked from many of the community’s local churches and governmental buildings, earning the operation its namesake of the “Edenton Bell Battery.”


a Word from Down Home

grammar If you aren’t a lover of language and words like I am, you might not realize that all dialects have their own internal grammar and operate according to rules. And I’m going to write from time to time about the rules of the dialect I know best: Southern American English.

Second person plural (the plural form of “you”) in Southern English is “y’all.” This form does not exist in Standard American English. The Southern word “y’all” follows the regular pattern for grammatical person and is a standard pronoun in Southern English, including the possessive form “y’all’s.” Example of second person plural: “She gave each of y’all keys to the building and someone none of y’all have kept up with them. How is that possible?” Another example of second person plural: “Kelly and Jim, I’m giving y’all an ‘A’ on this project. Outstanding group work!”

Example of the possessive form of second person plural: “Kelly and Jim, y’all’s project was outstanding!” Some people misinterpret the phrase “all y’all” as meaning that Southerners use the “y’all” as singular and “all y’all” as plural. However, “all y’all” is used to specify that all members of the second person plural (i.e., all persons currently being addressed and/or all members of a group represented by an addressee) are included; that is, it operates in contradistinction to “some of y’all,” thereby functioning similarly to “all of you” in standard English. ___

Double modal verbs (occasionally triple modal verbs are possible) are common in Southern English. Frequently used modal combinations include “might could” (conveys a greater sense of tentativeness than “might be able”), “might should,” “might would,” “used to could,” etc. Double modal verbs also appear in the closely related language of Scots (as well as other Germanic languages). Considering that a large percentage of native Southerners are of Scottish or Ulster-Scots ancestry, it is not surprising that Southerners have maintained this aspect of their speech.


S Shaped Swing Bridge Hertford, North Carolina

A visit to Hertford is like coming home again. Savor old-fashioned Southern hospitality and rediscover a way of life that has all but disappeared. To visit, travel on Hwy. 17, through the Inner Banks. Chartered in 1758 and the seventh oldest town in North Carolina, Historic Hertford, once home to the Algonquin Indians, is now the county seat of Perquimans County is said to take its name from the Yeopin Indians meaning, “land of beautiful women.” Nestled on the Perquimans River, picturesque Hertford can be approached by traveling over the only “S” shaped swing bridge in the nation. The National Register of Historic Places was home of Baseball Hall of Fame member, Jim “Catfish” Hunter. Its tree-lined streets, waterfront parks, 1825 Federal-style courthouse, and well preserved late 18th to early 20th century Queen Anne Colonial Revival homes beckon to visit.
