All pickups times for your winter share are the same this Thursday with the exception of the Neighborhood Co op pickup will be 4pm to 5pm, not till 6pm.  I would like leave by 5pm because its very cold and because I have family coming in on Friday.

PLEASE CALL OR TEXT 618 308 0217 IF YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PICKUP THIS WEEK.  DONT email as I may not see it.  Remember you can hold a week and get extras the following week. 

Thanks for all the warm wishes from members  for the holidays and for your continued support of the farm.  Many of you have either signed up for 2017 or let me know that you had plans to, and many of you have referred  a friend or co worker to me.

Members will enjoy two holiday treats.....King Trumpet mushrooms from Flyway Family Farms and fresh turmeric from River to River Farm.  Grower Mike Hatfield says that these mushrooms are in the oyster mushroom family but a bit tastier and have more substance.  Great sautéed in butter or olive oil with a little garlic, make some mushroom soup.  Fresh tumeric (the orange root in the bag) is generally added to tea...a tiny slice in your warm tea goes a long way.  Great for keeping down inflammation, some people eat it daily as it is full of antioxidants.  A great addition to any stir fry, or in a chicken soup.  Other goodies include fresh lettuce, mixed greens, a few more pecans, baby chard and more.  Enjoy and eat well while it seems the flu and cold season is upon us.

Big freeze came on this week.  We have spent the last three days harvesting what we could from the outside plots and got it into the barns!   Members can look forward to chard, kohlrabi, hot peppers, white turnips and other tasty nutritious things.

Returning members will receive a discount as well as those who pay in full and those buying both seasons at once.  Sign up is online or you can call me at 618 308 017 and I can get you signed up over the phone. 

Please call for questions.  New on the farm next year are strawberries and blueberries.  No promises, but we have put some effort into these crops.  

Our USDA inspection was a few weeks ago and we passed the test.  The inspector was at the farm for some time and got to meet some people on an organic tour, all of our cats and dogs, and also the great people that help on the farm!

Tuesday not Thursday next week......same times, same places.  

NOT GOING TO PICKUP?  please TEXT OR CALL 618 308 0217. Let me know if you want EXTRAS the following week.

Members are enjoying ROOT CROPS this week.....beets with greens, sweet potatoes, radishes......including the huge white radish....the daikon radish.   Google radish salads......add any left over white turnips you have and something wonderful can happen.  Also crunchy radishes are good in the greens mix......made up of baby kale, arugula, mizuna, tatsoi, mustard flowers and other baby greens.  This greens mix needs only a light, but a sweet dressing.  Mix olive oil and rice vinegar with a little honey and maybe a squeeze of mustard and toss into greens and chopped radishes until they are covered.  Our bodies crave root crops this time of year as our immune systems need that bolster before winter.   A great Thanksgiving dish consideration......take several root crops  (turnips, beets, sweet potatoes is a nice mix).....and cut into 1/2 pieces.   Toss in olive oil and your favorite herbs.....rosemary and thyme work well plus salt and pepper.  Put on a baking sheet and cook at about 350 until a fork just barely can go through.....then turn up the heat to 400 for just a few min while the sugars in the root crops caramelize ...remove from oven quickly.  They will continue to cook a bit after you take them out so you dont want to take them out of over before completely done.  Makes a pretty healthy side dish and complements turkey.  Herb this week is sage.....dry in oven at 120 if you dont want to use fresh.  

A good chance for rains today..........if there is something on the farm you would like to make sure is in your box next week, or you need more of.....TEXT or CALL me before MONDAY NOON.  

Sage is a holiday staple!!!
