Members will enjoy fresh organic lettuce, pac choi, new potatoes, di Avignon radish, sweet white turnips, garlic and fresh dill.  Lots of good meals out of this box.  If you have never had white turnips.....they do not have the taste of regular turnips......they are lovely, dense, sweet but yet crunchy.  One of my favorites of fall/winter eating.  Shave them into a salad, braise them with greens on after slicing in half, but I like to just eat them raw!  

Pickup at Co op 4 to 6, Townsquare 4 to 7, Farm anytime after 2pm, and Home Delivery beginning at 2pm.

Enjoy and as always, call for questions 618 308 0217.  your farmer, Jill

CSA Pickup TODAY Thursday.  Please CALL or TEXT 6183080217 for any questions or instructions to your farmer!  

Look for new sweet potatoes, asian greens, fall head lettuce, more cilantro before the cold gets it.  I love to make a dinner of baked sweet potatoes and stir fried asian greens.  These greens are new this year and were selected because of their dense nutrition and great taste.  You can also add them to smoothies, or simply chop and add to salads for a new taste.  Spinach will be our green for next week....it has done well in this cooler night weather.   

On the farm we are busy putting new plastic on a high tunnel.  It requires about 4 people or more, but we have only had two or three so it is taking a bit longer than anticipated.  The chard and toscano kale look great as well as the collards.......so lots of greens coming on.  Next week look for butternut squash one of my favs for fall eating.    Below......sweet potatoes with a side of noodles and greens with a tad of butter and mozzarella cheese.  yummm....

First FALL CSA starts this Thursday!   Members will receive a waxed box full of fresh organic produce.  The box should be returned the following Thursday.  If you do not want to take the box, you can bring a bag or something else to transfer your goods into.  Boxes should be kept in a cool dry spot.....not in your car or on a sun porch where the wax will melt off!   

Look for last of the season tomatoes, fall lettuce, peppers, fresh rosemary, possibly some potatoes......and more!  The butternut is curing in the barn.  The spinach, kales, and chard are planted, radishes are coming up, cabbages coming along, and the peppers just keep on coming!  

New members, do not hesitate to CALL or TEXT me at 618 308 0217 if you have questions.  I most likely will NOT SEE EMAILS.   

Take care and keep in touch.  Thanks so much for supporting our farm and organic production in Southern Illinois.  

your farmer, jill  ps.  this first week, everyone will get eggs.  share with a neighbor if you are totally vegan!

Fall planting and field work is well underway!  Things are looking up with cooler weather and some needed rain!  Planting strawberries this week and more blueberries.  Hopefully we will have both next spring and summer!  We also have spinach and lettuces in the ground and looking fairly happy....kale and chard as well as some herbs we could not get growing this summer!  Still tomatoes around, peppers, beets, potatoes, eggplant too!  

Sign up for fall/winter if you have not already done so!  We get started next Thursday with our fall winter memberships.  If you aren't going for the fall/winter share........check out www.allseasons-farm.com in early winter as we will begin sign up then.  This year there will be a returning member discount as well as a referral discount if you get a friend or family to sign up.  Call me if you want to sign up over the phone.  618 308 0217.

Pickup reminder for last CSA of this season.  Consider signing up for the fall winter season or if not, see you next April!  Please return any boxes you have to the Co op or to me on Thursday.  Boxes are a big expense and it really helps if you can return them for reuse!  

While the season is ending, we will still have a variety of veggies available to members in the next few weeks if you don't mind a trip out to the farm.  There are lots of small eggplants as well as sweet red peppers and hot peppers.  If you would like to come out and get some end of season produce, just give me a call 618 308 0217 and I can let you know what we have for you to pickup.  

The annual Farm Crawl is Sat Sept 17th ....which is a self guided tour of many farms, ours being but one.  Bring friends and family to see what it is all about.  If ours is the only farm you visit, there is no charge for coming out.  The Farm Crawl is hosted by The Neighborhood Co-op and you can find more by going to their website.  

Thanks for all your patience, recipes, comments during this season and we look forward to seeing you again this fall or spring!

Nearing end of season.....this weeks box will contain some lovely warm to hot peppers.  We have been busy dehydrating some with our new dehydrator.   Another way to dehydrate is to put in the oven at 130 or so for 10-12 hrs.  Or you can simply string them up to dry.....or freeze them.  The Community Garden on Washington has built a solar dehydrator if you want to see something really innovative.   Warning: since I have done this......dont put your hands to your eyes after preparing, i.e. slicing for dehydration or freezing!   Potatoes also on the list as well as some type of tomato.  The cherries are about done as well as the large heirlooms but we shall glean what we can from the vines.  I seem to be able to come up with about 10 pints of cherries at a time which is about what the co op wants.....so you may see a few there as well.  

Next week may be the last week of this seasons CSA.  Fall CSA starts in Sept or early Oct whenever things are ready.  YOU CAN SIGN UP NOW for FALL SEASON on website or call me.  Spinach and greens, late zucchinis, butternut squash, hopefully some carrots, and other cool season veggies to be expected!   

Hope you can come to the farm on Sat Sept 17th for a Tour!  Also if you are looking for great local food, mark your calendars for Nov 4th the annual Fall Feast held by Food Works...local food prepared by local chefs!

CSA Pickup is today!  Farm pickups please watch your step around the building due to construction going on.  Rest of deliveries will be on the regular schedule.  The several weeks of extreme heat did a number on many of the crops.....water only goes so far to help plants through the heat.  Many of the tomatoes split due to heat then the rain.   Now we are in the midst of extreme rain which is ok really because we needed it and because it gave us some cloud cover which gave some relief, but we got about 12 inches of rain making the plots way to wet.   Good news is your box has cool cabbage and lettuce in it, as well as more of the sweet peppers, garlic, sage and last of the sweet corn.  Save the sage and let it dry out hanging in the kitchen, wonderful in dressing or on turkey just around the corner.  Hope all is well and you are enjoying the CSA this season, it has been a trying season but that what makes it fun out here.  Egg members, you may see some smaller eggs in your carton, the new hens are laying now.  I tried to mix the mature and the newer hen eggs.   Any member who wants another dozen due to small eggs, just let me know.    Your farmer,  jill

The week has gotten away from me!  Today is CSA pickup day.

I may be inside the Co op if it is really hot.  

Look for tomatoes that are not so pretty.  The heat and sun have done a number on the tomatoes.  Many have splits, or brown spots, or sun scalding.   Anything with a split should be eaten right away or you can simply put in the fridge.  You will get a lot of tomatoes this week, and a good way to store them is to simply remove the core, then slice into quarters, put into a freezer bag or box and freeze.  I don't always take the time to remove the skin.  We you put those tomatoes into soups this fall or winter, the skin will float to the top and you can remove it all then.  We are doing a lot of dehydrating......loads of fun, but worth it.  Also in your box, fresh basil, eggplants, those nice red peppers, and some awesome sweet corn.  Maybe the only we have unless we have a bit more next week!  Enjoy summers end......stay cool.
