Specials for this week-end Oct 28-29
Hi, Veggie Lovers! Rolo and Joann visit the Farmers Market in Plant City twice a week to bring you the freshest, most locally harvested produce available! The weather has been crazy this summer - all along the Eastern Seaboard. Some items did well, and others didn't, but somehow, Joann and Rolo manage to find healthy food for all of us to enjoy.
As they unpacked the trailer today, we sampled fabulous juicing carrots, which are sweet as can be! These will be great cooked side dishes, or shredded into any cake mix for extra fibre and firmness (if you don't tell, who will know?). There were yellow and purple onions, scallions, jalapeno peppers - all great for creating special flavors in meals, dips, and soups.
Beautiful head cabbage and that dark, luscious green color, perfect for steaming, sauteing or stuffing! Have you tried stuffing cabbage leaves yet? Lightly steam, and roll the leaves with any sort of stuffing - traditional bread or cornbread stuffing, rice, meats, cheeses, and leave plain, or top with sauces like spaghetti sauce or alfredo! Whatever pleases your family.
Fragrant and firm Red and Green Bell Peppers and WONDERFUL Sweet Cubanellas! Our salad is fabulous tonight! There is some Florida sweet corn, eggplant, bakers & sweet potatoes.
On Saturday at the Hernando County Farmers Market on Hwy 19/Commercial Way, Joann and Rolo will have a New Crop of Florida Cucumbers and some of the first Florida JUMBO Tomatoes!
Not enough? Lovely, crisp Romaine Lettuce, Butternut Squash and Yellow and Zucchini squashes.
And in the meantime, lots of goodies growing at the Beasley Farm - just growing their little hearts out, so they may make their debut in your home in the next 60-90 days!
Green Bean U-Pick which is going on right now! Also available from our summer-harvest on the farm are fresh-frozen, pesticide-free, Zippers, Pink-Eyes and Black-Eyes Peas - at the Produce Barn, or please phone ahead to reserve your peas for one of our satellite locations.
Rolo will be at the usual Friday location in Spring Hill (see right column for address). Joann and Rolo present an extra large booth this Saturday at the Hernando County Farmers Market. On Monday, Joann will be at the Cloverleaf location in north Brooksville. As always, the Produce Barn is open every day until 6PM.
I hear dinner calling, so I'm off! In the meantime, enjoy life, and make meal preparations fun for the whole family with those yummy veggies!
