Tasty and Healthy - June 26, 2012

Welcome to this week's newsletter. Tropical Storm Debby kept us out of the fields, but we kept our customers close to heart. Hopefully you were able to come through the rains without damage or serious problems. We've come up with "party recipes" for those who enjoy preserving, canning and freezing. With lots of celebrating taking place next week, we thought our favorite party recipes should be shared. (below)

Special Interest:

If interested in shelled black-eye peas, please phone the farm to place an order. Peas are in our standard two pound bag. $8 per bag.

As always, please feel free to phone the farm for special requests or special orders. We'll do everything we can to accommodate you. If you need something from the Farmers Market in Plant City, it is best to phone by Wednesday afternoon.
The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services visits to our farm to test our soil and plants. For more information about our farming techniques, and the testing we undergo, please click here.

Gran'ma Angie thanks you for the bags! She hopes you will keep on bringing 'em. Thanks for "recycling" your plastic bags with us! It helps us keep prices down.

This week's Recipe Suggestions

Quote for this week:

Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can 
disturb your peace of mind. Look at the sunny side 
of everything and make your optimism come true. 
Think only of the best, work only for the best, 
and expect only the best. Forget the mistakes of the 
past and press on to the greater achievements of 
the future. Give so much time to the improvement 
of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. 
Live in the faith that the whole word is on your side 
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.
Christian D. Larson

As always, thank you for your encouragement and support. Without you, we wouldn't be able to do what we love most - FARM!
