Pickup Reminder for All Seasons Members.....

Co-op 4-6pm

Town Square 4pm to 7pm

Home Delivery beginning at 2pm

Farm Pickup  anytime after 2pm

Members can look forward to more pesto basil, lettuce, green beans, tomatoes and other great summer season veggies.  

We have a lot of pesto basil and are taking orders from those who want extra basil.  $3/large bunch.  This is something really special in the heart of winter.  We use pesto in all italian recipes, but mostly with just plain pasta.  Recipe below.

Ingredients 2 cups packed fresh basil leaves 2 cloves garlic 1/4 cup pine nuts 2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesean cheese  Combine the basil, garlic, and pine nuts in a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped. Add 1/2 cup of the oil and process until fully incorporated and smooth. Season with salt and pepper. If using immediately, add all the remaining oil and pulse until smooth. Transfer the pesto to a large serving bowl and mix in the cheese. If freezing, transfer to an air-tight container and drizzle remaining oil over the top. Freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw and stir in cheese.

Pickup Reminder for Thursday.  Members can expect to see first of the season tomatoes, various zucchini, garlic scapes, mint for your tea or water or juleps, and more little seeded cuts.   Look for recipes for refrigerator pickles as a way to keep an over abundance of cucs.  We eat them after a soak in water vinegar and salt.  There is no need to peel these cucs.  If you do, you are loosing a whole lot of nutrition.  Remember, they are organic, no toxins are soaked into their skins like at the store.  Same with our zucchini and all other veggies.....you can eat or find a use for everything in all your share contents each week.  Bon Appetite.  

Faylin will be in charge of all deliveries this week.  She can be texted or called at 618 713 1826.

Zuchinni, peppers, squash......all are leaders into the summer fare in Southern Illinois!  There were a few ripe cherry tomatoes.....enough to bring 12 pints to the Co-op.  Your dill is wonderful with sliced cucumbers or on any fish or chicken dish.  We often grill summer zucs with any other summer veggies....if you have been drying your herbs, take a few pinches from the assortment and throw it all together in a little olive oil and role your veggies in it.  let set for 5 to 20 min then roast or grill the veggies.  Simple is better with great tasting fresh local grown foods.....their taste should be the highlight, not added ingredients.  Remember there are really good farm food recipes on our website.  Go to www.allseasons-farm.com and click on Recipes.  Another good spot.....  www.stonebarnscenter.org    So sorry to miss the pickup reminder this week, technical difficulties.

First of season cucs are in!  They are tasty and thin skinned.  You will have fresh sage in your box.  Great to hang upside down and dry for your Thanksgiving turkey or other fall and winter dishes!  Tomatoes are on the vine, but are still green.  Ah the wait.  Zucchini just beginning to flower.  Its been a long cool wet spring, good for the potatoes, greens in field, baby heirloom apples, and other things.....but holds up the warm season crops a bit!  

Co-op  4pm to 6pm  Thanks for calling if you will be late.

The tomatoes are coming on, a few cucs are showing up, green beans and squash are planted, eggplant and peppers also now planted and happily taking root!  The on and off cool and wet weather has put a few things back, but has been good for new apple trees, spring lettuce, beets, kale and chard.  At the farm we are also busy with trying to get our circle to the farm house and roads to the barns improved a bit.  I am afraid a few pot holes will remain until we get the right fix to the problem!  New hens are not laying yet, but the older gals have really been working, so the eggs have been nice this spring.  

Remember to bring your boxes and look for lettuce, spring kale, maybe broccoli, and a few other treats this week.  Take care, your farmer jill

Eggplants, Peppers, Cucs, and Tomatoes are all in the ground and growing well.  There are a few tiny cucs, and some tiny tomatoes starting to form.  Cold weather has set things back a bit, but has kept the lettuce happy for a bit longer.  The rain has been a blessing on the new apples trees and new rhubarb and asparagus plantings.  

Thanks for your patience in this blackberry winter!   your farmer, jill

Members will be enjoying a box containing head lettuce....in this case a crunchy romaine.   Also in your box are two asian greens,  pac choi and tatsoi.  I take my large chef knife and slice them both into one inch pieces and stir fry.  Add some carrots or red pepper for color.  Great on rice.   Both also hold up very well for any veggie soup.  Take some chicken broth and heat through, then add the chopped pac choi and/or tatsoi and you have a healthy light soup. You can add a few noodles to make it more hardy.  The herb mint is included as we approach Derby weekend......for now, i add mint sprigs to a pitcher of water and keep it in the fridge.  Mint water is soothing to the digestive system and refreshing.   Mixed red and green kale with kale flowers is sweet this spring, it makes a pretty salad, or just add it to hot oil, cook down a bit, add minced garlic and salt and you have it.  Pic below is from my kitchen stove.  Here is something about kale's nutritional qualities I copied from the "top 10 veggies to eat."

.Kale  This marvellous vegetable tops our list of healthy greens and is literally one of the most nutritious foods by weight. Key Benefits: Kale is anti-inflammatory, reduces oxidative stress, and is a potent antioxidant. Kale aids detoxification. Kale contains over 45 flavonoids including quercitin and kaempferol. Kale helps lower cholesterol. Kale is rich glucosinolates, which form the anti-cancer agent isothiocyanate. Contains Vitamin A, C, K, B6, calcium and magnesium. TIP: It is best cooked by lightly steaming for approximately 5 minutes in order to reduce the oxalic acid content in the kale. Oxalic acid in high amounts can prevent mineral absorption.
