News and Blog

Welcome to the blog.
Posted 10/26/2014 2:20pm by Jill Rendleman.

Members are getting a real treat this week with local oyster mushrooms grow by THE mushroom man of Southern Illinois.  Braze T. Smith is a scientist who grows the spores which other local growers use to start their mushroom.   He and his family have recently decided to sell mushrooms as well so I am including a sample in your share this week.  These are grown under very controlled and clean environment by an expert and the quality is just great.  I love them in a little olive oil and butter hot so they get just a bit crispy brown, then add garlic at the end and serve alone, over rice, or over the stir fried pac choi in your box.   Pac Choi is a tender cabbage that can be added to salads as a crunch or stir fried or added to soups.  You can also click on    www.allseasons-farm.com/recipe  to get more recipes for pac choi.  

We will be offering a mushroom share soon.  It will be 8 weeks of mushrooms sometime during the 25 week winter share.  Mushroom varieties will include shitakes, oysters, and others.  The mushroom products are not certified organic but grown using natural inputs and methods.

More nutritious greens mix......you can eat greens as a salad alone or add to lettuces......last nite i was too tired to go pick kale and we had some greens mix.  We put it in a skillet with a little water and olive oil and cooked it quickly, adding minced garlic at the end...then put it on top of smashed potatoes.  Yumm.  The small plastic box is full of fresh herbs...add to your Prairie Gold potatoes or set on a plate to dry and add to any soup, salad, or top any meat with the herb mix ( spanish tarragon, winter savory, oregano, garlic chives, sage, parsley, and etc.).  The small white and somewhat muddy radish looking things.......are baby hakuri turnips.  Considered a delicacy, the greens are just as good as the small white turnips which dont taste like turnips or radishes...just heavenly white crunch without heat or overpowering turnip taste...they are great alone or with sliced pears and drizzled with juice of an orange or meyer lemon.  Watch each week as they grow larger and sweeter.  The Red Russian kale is very tender and delicate, no need to stem this particular kale..  This kale is great stirred fried in oil, a bit of butter and garlic, on top of smashed potatoes or added to an omelet.  The Prairie Gold potatoes are from organic seed from maine....we have always had great tasting potatoes from this company...Wood Prairie Farm....if you want to order your own seed potatoes for next year order early.   If you have any thoughts or suggestions for winter crops, let me know.  Winter spinach is looking happy with cool nites and sunny days and lots of moisture in the soil.......keep your fingers crossed!

Thanks to all members for making the first Fall/Winter 2014-15 pickup go smoothly!  Please call or text me if you have any questions or concerns about your pickup 618 308 0217 as i can help clarify what may not have gone smoothly on your end.

Your box has end of summer tomatoes and peppers, as well as fall lettuces and greens and cilantro and dill for herbs.  The greens can be eaten as salad alone, or added as flavoring to regular lettuce.....i like them best alone with vinegar, oil, honey, and a little mustard all whisked together.  These greens are nutritionally dense...they can also be stir fried in a little olive oil and garlic, or added to fall soups.    Lettuce and greens are something we do our best to have all season long....now planting romaines and other cold season lettuces under row cover!  I cant say enough about fresh dill.....added to any veggies, chicken or fish, or mixed with mayo or sour cream or both as sandwich spread (sorry Kathy and Jerri my vegan friends from La Colina Linda B&B and Farm in Makanda).  

There really are some great recipes on our farm website assembled from CSA farms from around the country.... click on  www.allseasons-farm.com/recipe to get ideas!

Last share pickup is tomorrow.   We have had a great group of members this season and i want to thank everyone for supporting local and organic and All Seasons Farm this year.  You have proven to be adventurous, patient, creative, idea generators, and just plainly nice people!  It has been my pleasure to know you.  

The Fall/Winter Share will begin the second week in October and go into April.  The fall share includes lots of lettuces, greens, spinach, micro greens, winter squash, fennel, chard, kale, cabbages, and herbs.  Probably other things as well.  You can sign up on line by going to  www.allseasons-farm.com then click on CSA, then click on Current Member Login.  

This week look for lettuce, greens, cherry tomatoes, herbs, cucs, and other end of summer things.  It will be a big share this last week.

This Thursday Sept 11th and next Thursday September 18th are the last two member shares!   I have really enjoyed meeting and talking with members this year and it has added to the richness of our lives to get to know so many people from different walks of life who are making the choice to eat healthy and support local farmers.  It gives me hope for the next generation who are growing up much more informed about their food than my generation.   Again thank you for your patience and input when finding a slimy cuc in your box...after which we changed our cooling and handling process for cucs, as well as for all the nice compliments about fresh organic food, and the occasional encouraging email or bag of goodies left for me in your return box!   oh and please return those boxes!!!! 

It was good to see so many members come out Sunday with friends and family for the Farm Crawl to pick some fresh herbs and other goodies.  

Fall 2014/Winter 2015 shares start mid October.  

Please check your membership to see if you have any unpaid balances for spring/summer 2014 by clicking on                                                 www.allseasons-farm.com/members/statusemail.  Call me if you have any questions.
