News and Blog

Welcome to the blog.
Posted 2/27/2017 7:56am by Jill Rendleman.

A big thank you for your membership this winter!  Those of you bold enough to sign up for the winter share know how wonderful things can happen in Southern Illinois winters.  This years' bounty was an exception to the exception!

This Thursday will be the final Winter Share.  Bring any lingering boxes this week for recycling.  Summer Share will start in April with plenty of notice. 

If you are signing up for the Spring/Summer Share, be sure to go to the CSA Members Only red bar and look for the GREEN RETURNING MEMBER sign up.  Call 618 308 0217 if you have trouble or to renew in person or set up a payment or to pay by phone.  

CSA members are this farm's lifeline.  You allow us to know that what we grow is already spoken for.....and the early funding allows us to buy farm supplies at a discount we can pass on to members.  Lastly, the encouragement I get from members each week keeps me going through the rough times.  

Thank you and its been an honor to feed you, your farmer, Jill

Spring is around the corner and we are busy getting ready for the new CSA season.  Planting plans, buying seeds, doing taxes...always depressing, and enjoying the great sun we have had lately.  

Tell a friend or fellow worker how to feed your family and support a farmer if you get the chance.  Looking forward to spring, your farmer, jill

Lots of good spinach picking help!

Thanks for getting those stray boxes to me this week!  If you haven't yet signed up for 2017 shares, Feb 25th is CSA Day and a good time to renew.  I would like to hear from members about making the CSA as good as it can be!   call, email, or text me! 618 308 0217 

Looks like another bountiful CSA share with more tatsoi, spinach, kale, potatoes and other goodies.  Glad you liked the microgreens....a little hard to pick, but worth it.  Next week we hope to add homemade local noodles from K's Noodles made with organic flour!  See you Thursday.  your farmer, Jill

Nice mild weather we are having here.....trying to decide if it is a trick or not!  Monday and Tuesday we had plots dry enough to work up so we happily made beds and did our best not to plant anything.....even tho it did seem very much like spring was here! 

The blueberry bushes look happy and the greens in the high tunnels are taking off.  Hens are very happy and laying like crazy.....lots of scrambled eggs for dinner here.  

Members can look for a treat this week, our micro greens are now ready!  These are great sprinkled into salads, atop a grilled fish, chicken, or beef,  or added to a smoothie.  Microgreens are highly nutritious and its hard for me not to take samples while clipping for the CSA.  Also look for new kale, lettuce, and dill this week!  Hope you are enjoying the spinach, we have a whole new crop growing like crazy......look for more soon!

Mild weather and a little sunshine has made the spinach happy.....look for spinach, lettuce, beets or turnips and other winter fare, included more King Trumpet mushrooms from Flyway Family Farm.   These mushrooms are "samplers" as I hope members will grow fond of them and sign up for the new Mushroom Share which will start along with the Spring Summer CSA sometime in April.  There are a couple of options for the mushroom share so check it out!!!  

your farmer,  Jill

Snow is falling and making winter crops even sweeter!  Look for purple top turnips picked yesterday before the snow, mixed greens, wonderful lions mane mushrooms from Flyway Farms along with king trumpets, potatoes and last of the jalapeño peppers.  

Consider adding a mushroom share to your veggie share in 2017!  CSA now open for signup with description of mushroom share provided.  This is a great way to support a local sustainable mushroom farm and get the freshest local mushrooms around. 

Same times except Co-op will be 4 to 5pm due to weather.  Look for boxes on the outside bench, I will be in a warm van looking for you!

Take care and be safe today!  your farmer, jill

Here's a recipe from Cooks Illustrated that good outline for roasting root vegetables.....

WHY THIS RECIPE WORKS When developing our roasted root vegetables recipe, we found that the rules that apply to roasting meats also apply to roasting vegetables: You need high, dry heat and a low-sided roasting pan that is large enough to accommodate the vegetables without crowding. You also need some fat. A number of types work well in our roasted root vegetables recipe. For a light, crisp crust choose vegetable oil; for flavor, olive oil or butter. A combination of butter and oil browns better than butter alone but not as well as oil alone. Cooking School Italian Salads And Vegetables Learn More INGREDIENTSPrint Shopping List 1medium head garlic 1 ½ - 2pounds root vegetables, peeled and cut into 1 ¼-inch pieces 1 medium onion or 4 to 6 shallots, peeled 2tablespoons Unsalted Butter melted, or vegetable or olive oil, or a combination Salt And Ground Black Pepper FROM OUR SHOP INSTRUCTIONSSERVES 4 1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. If roasting garlic cloves in skins, simply break head into individual cloves. If you wish to roast cloves out of skins, put whole, unpeeled head in a small saucepan with water to cover. Bring water to boil, then simmer to soften cloves and loosen skins, about 10 minutes. Drain and refresh garlic head under cold water. Separate cloves and peel. 2. Put vegetables (excluding garlic) into a roasting pan large enough to hold them without crowding. Toss vegetables with butter and/or oil and sprinkle with salt. Roast, stirring or shaking vegetables every 15 minutes, until tender and evenly browned, 45 to 50 minutes. Add unpeeled garlic cloves during final 20 minutes; add peeled garlic during final 15 minutes. Sprinkle with pepper; taste and adjust seasonings. Serve hot or at room temperature.
