Welcome to the blog.

Members will enjoy fresh spinach, head lettuce, beets, garlic, and sweet potatoes on this cold wintry day!  Spinach and sweet potatoes are so nice together....especially if you have some nice pasta on the side.  Beets are best roasted in the oven in my humble taste, but they are also good sautéed with other root crops.  Along the CSA way members have or will enjoy a variety of root crops.....turnips, carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes, a variety of beets.....these keep well and if you save a few along the way you can put them all together for a roasted root crop feast!

take care, your farmer and our trusted guard pets.

We are getting into deep winter now and most of our outside crops are looking sadly, though the kale looks pretty good still!  Lots of potatoes still and the lettuces are looking nice in the high tunnels.  If there is a winter green you would like to see in your share,  call or text me.  your farmer, jill

CSA members have lots of winter greens in their shares, here is a great starting place for how to use your greens for best taste and nutrition.  Historically, greens have been very important in that they provide nutrients not available in meats or root crops.  Our greens mix, collards, kale, pac choi, tatsoi, or any other green can be used in this recipe from Cooks Illustrated .  If you are vegan, you can use veggie stock or miso in place of chicken stock.  Many new CSA members will look at pac choi, spinach, collards, or other greens and wonder what do I do with this?  Here is a start.  

WHY THIS RECIPE WORKS

We wanted a one-pot winter greens recipe with no parcooking. To achieve this, we sautéed half of the greens before adding the rest with a little bit of liquid and covered the pot. When the greens had almost the tender-firm texture we wanted... Read More

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Directions: Sautee greens in oil, add onions and garlic, when color has turned, add broth and water and other ingredients.  Cook 5 to 7 min.  Add Lemon at end or right before serving.  Dont cook all day like my grandmother did.  (she also added ham hocks which are great if you like ham, but if you cant tolerant , not necessary, but if you want old fashioned southern style, add the ham hocks.).

Greens are back!  Look for lettuce and collards and cilantro and garlic and potatoes for the start of a new year!   Good base for a New Years soups and salads.  Spent a quiet day yesterday as we have had the cough thats going around.....Cleto saves the day...maybe the week I should say as one of the big rules here is no one with any cough cold etc allowed to pick pack or deliver be around any food!  

If you have never had collards......cook them as you would kale or other greens.  Also, they make a nice thing to role up instead of using bread for sandwiches.....if you are trying to decarb 2020.  

Look for Cleto today and wish him a happy New Year.

You will also see him next week!   Happy food enjoyments!  your farmer, Jill

Members pickup either a chicken or a box of veggies as you have requested over text or phone. thanks for letting me know your choice for this upcoming holiday week.  

The frost as moved in permanently, well at least the last week, making our lives a bit more difficult to raise row cover to peek in on our young ones outside.  The greens are loving it, some of the more delicate lettuces not so much!  The frost is so pretty that its hard to think too badly about it.  So blessed we are to have a climate that allows for such great winter growing. 

Wishing you the best over the holiday week and I will see you back on Jan 2 for the next winter pickup!  Stay safe, eat the green and the red stuff along with those pies and potatoes.

Greens are definitely back.  Members are asking for cleansing nutritious greens to overcome holiday blues and to move back to healthy eating.  Kale, Tatsoi or Chard, Garlic, Radish......all on the list for this week.  I am stewing a chicken, adding white beans, kale, last of season ugly tomatoes and carrots, garlic, and kale or chard.....for a healthful soup that will last a few days.  

Next week Dec 19th those of you who want a 7 to 9 lb hen......please let me know text 618 308 0217.......if you got one before, you can order specific veggies.  Everyone will get extra veggies on Dec 19th to stock up for the Christmas week as there will be NO DELIVERY on the week of DEC 22 to Dec 29th.  The next CSA Delivery after Dec 19th will be Jan 2cd.  We will be back on schedule.

Tomorrow is CSA pickup.  If you told me you want a chicken this week, it will be in your box......if not you will get veggies! Please let TEXT or CALL me by NOON today if you DO NOT want chicken.   618 308 0217    We CANNOT leave chicken in the Co-op cooler, so if you are picking up after 5:30 please ask for veggies!  

The frosts and unseasonably cold weather has been rough, but we have kept most things well with row cover or in tunnels.  

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Sharing a day of thanks makes for a nice day.  Be safe, eat well, be sure to include green healthy things on your plate! 

your farmer, Jill

Next week delivery is on TUESDAY same times same places.   My plan was for shares be a whole chicken...these are young tenders birds great for roasting, making chicken stock and having lots of meat too....etc but they are big about 9 lbs.....so if you DONT have room in your freezer or would just rather have veggies......please CALL or TEXT me.  If you want to have yours at Christmas instead, we can wait till then....618 308 0217.   Full shares will have chicken and most likely lettuce or greens.  

Today look for sweet potatoes, garlic, pac choi, radish, and green and red lettuces.   Back to winter we go......
