Welcome to the blog.

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.

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.
