Eggplants, Peppers, Cucs, and Tomatoes are all in the ground and growing well.  There are a few tiny cucs, and some tiny tomatoes starting to form.  Cold weather has set things back a bit, but has kept the lettuce happy for a bit longer.  The rain has been a blessing on the new apples trees and new rhubarb and asparagus plantings.  

Thanks for your patience in this blackberry winter!   your farmer, jill

Members will be enjoying a box containing head lettuce....in this case a crunchy romaine.   Also in your box are two asian greens,  pac choi and tatsoi.  I take my large chef knife and slice them both into one inch pieces and stir fry.  Add some carrots or red pepper for color.  Great on rice.   Both also hold up very well for any veggie soup.  Take some chicken broth and heat through, then add the chopped pac choi and/or tatsoi and you have a healthy light soup. You can add a few noodles to make it more hardy.  The herb mint is included as we approach Derby weekend......for now, i add mint sprigs to a pitcher of water and keep it in the fridge.  Mint water is soothing to the digestive system and refreshing.   Mixed red and green kale with kale flowers is sweet this spring, it makes a pretty salad, or just add it to hot oil, cook down a bit, add minced garlic and salt and you have it.  Pic below is from my kitchen stove.  Here is something about kale's nutritional qualities I copied from the "top 10 veggies to eat."

.Kale  This marvellous vegetable tops our list of healthy greens and is literally one of the most nutritious foods by weight. Key Benefits: Kale is anti-inflammatory, reduces oxidative stress, and is a potent antioxidant. Kale aids detoxification. Kale contains over 45 flavonoids including quercitin and kaempferol. Kale helps lower cholesterol. Kale is rich glucosinolates, which form the anti-cancer agent isothiocyanate. Contains Vitamin A, C, K, B6, calcium and magnesium. TIP: It is best cooked by lightly steaming for approximately 5 minutes in order to reduce the oxalic acid content in the kale. Oxalic acid in high amounts can prevent mineral absorption.

Thanks for all your patience on this first CSA delivery day.  If you have any questions or any issues, please CALL or TEXT me at 618-308-0217.

In your box you will find a lovely mix of small kales and kale flowers.....very sweet.  You can mix up a little extra virgin olive oil, rice vinegar, and honey...maybe a touch of mustard and squeeze on some lemon or lime....a great and very healthy salad.  We add nuts and or raisins, apples, pears...sometimes red onion.  

Also, some new chard....thats the red leaves with green....with veins.  Chard to me is best lightly stir fried with a bit of olive oil and garlic, but it is also wonderful in soups.  Chard and lentil soup is one of my favorites.  There are lots of recipes for this if you do a search.

Also....a big bunch of parsley.  Parsley and noodles with a little parmesan or mozzarella makes a great meal in itself.  Parsley over wintered is highly nutritious.  Too much parsley?  cut up and freeze for adding to soups later on....or set on plate in kitchen and let dry.  It will stay good in your fridge in a bag or cloth for some time.  

Lettuce.......late spring romaine, red and greens.  not the prettiest romaine we have ever grown, but pull back the first layer and there is some wonderful crunchy lettuce in there!

Our website at www.allseasons-farm.com has a recipe section, this recipes were collected from CSA farms all over the country and they are really great......some from the more famous east coast farm to table restaurants.  

Enjoy!   your farmer, jill

CSA membership has some special benefits I don't speak about enough.  Here is one:  if you have family or friends you want to bring out to the farm for a special one on one tour of a certified organic farm......bring them out for a personal tour of the farm with your farmer, jill.  We will talk about our growing practices and management of an organic farm.  It is amazing how many children have not ever been on a farm these days, so it something entertaining for children or out of town guests.  They will see bees, organic soils, butterflies, and pick and taste off the vine veggies.  The tour generally takes about 20 min with added time for questions, then you can have a picnic on the farm or wander the 40 acres of natural woodland habitat and fresh water creek........or travel on  to Owl Creek Vineyard, about 3 miles away, for some award winning hard cider and wines.  The best days for me to give tours are Mon, Tues, or Saturday, Sunday.  Other days are good if I have enough advance notice.

Spring/summer CSA is filling up at a steady pace, so you might want to consider reserving a membership in the next few weeks.  

Looking forward to the probability of an early spring and that means great lettuce, greens, and asparagus growing weather.  About  now i start thinking about those red heirloom tomatoes of summer and the crunchy euro cucumbers.  

Returning members can use your debit or credit card online at www.allseasons-farm.com, ( select RETURNING MEMBER) through Paypal, or through Paypal's "bill me later" option, or if you call i can take debit or credit cards over the phone, or you can just send a check to the farm.  

Call me for questions.  Keep track of our heirloom organic apple tree plantings this spring by liking All Seasons Farm on Facebook.  

Take care, your farmer, jill
