Welcome to the blog.

Members will see a colorful bag of baby Rainbow Chard in their box, no this is NOT rhubarb.  Would make a yucky pie.  Chard is something I had to grow to love.....while fresh chard still isn't my thing, I love Chard and Lentil Soup....many recipes online for that, and I love it braised in olive oil with a little garlic and salt.  Place it on quinoa for a health meal.  Curly leaf head lettuce most of you know what to do with, fresh spinach and lovely farm dug potatoes...you will notice a very different taste here!  The sprig of great smelling stuff is the rosemary, which goes very well with potatoes, just a few sprigs.  I keep rosemary pickings on a small plate next to my oven, they dry out, but still add great aroma to soups and meats.  Enjoy and please go to  http://www.allseasons-farm.com/recipe  where you will find many great recipes from CSA farms and restaurants using local food around the country.  It is a great collection, really! 

Good Greens Dice thicker stems of Swiss Chard, then very coarsely chop leaves (or leave whole). Slice 4 cloves garlic thinly. Over med-low heat sauté garlic in 1 T butter and 1 T olive oil turning often until golden. Remove garlic and save, increase heat and add stems; sauté 3 min. stirring occasionally. Add leaves, continue tossing until wilted, then add red pepper flakes, garlic, and salt to taste. Sprinkle with vinegar and serve. This is great with polenta, grits, or cornbread.

Our last winter delivery was last week and we have been busy repotting baby tomato plants, transplanting kale, cleaning up beds and more in this lovely weather.  

We have a lot of spinach that we just picked in order to clear out the high tunnels.  Returning members can come by the farm or the winter farmers market at CCHS on Saturday and get a full pound of spinach as part of  your membership.  Just something to tide you over!  

Take care and I will be in touch about the first spring/summer sign share around the second week of April!    your farmer, Jill

Thanks to the Union County USDA office, our farm has been designated as a pollinator plot for monarch habitats.   It is a 3 year process of selecting the habitat sites, then tilling and removing non native weeds and grasses, and then repopulating with native plants.  So far we have removed the non native fescue, and will continue to proactively create a site and a planting which is conducive  to habitat and site renewal.

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

Returning members can sign up online at www.allseasons-farm.com or give me a call 618 308 0217.  I can take debit or credit cards over the phone now or set up a payment plan that works for you.  Sign up by clicking on Returning Member if you are doing it online. 

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
