Tasty and Healthy - August 30, 2012

Soggy, sloshy, Labor Day greetings from Beasley Farm! We were lucky not to experience the full impact of Isaac, but the ensuing rain and humidity was more than enough, right? We pray that you are safe, and that your loved ones, too, did not have to endure any hardship from the recent storms.

Have you braved the heat to one of our Spring Hill locations in this summer heat? Try visiting in the morning, when temperatures are more comfortable. We are most happy to serve you, and bring whatever you need.

Currently we are clearing our fields to plant Autumn and Winter Crops.

Pesticide-free Okra is currently being harvested. Have you tried grilling it or roasting it yet? (Recipes on the right)

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

Did you know...
vine ripened tomatoes turn color from bottom to top?

Did you know...
1 cup diced or sliced fresh tomatoes is full of nutrients?

  • Tomato Gravy provides an interesting, nutrient-rich, flavorful boost to many vegetables, meats and starches. 
  • Traditionally served over rice, tomato gravy is great (hot or cold) as a condiment on eggs, sandwiches and wraps, atop meats or potatoes, and mixed with vegetable side dishes. When chilled, blend it with sour cream or yogurt and serve as a relish or dip.
  • Rather than french fries or baked potato, try fried eggplant or squash with tomato gravy.
  • Great texture and vitamin packed!
Recipe below

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 regularly to test our soil and plants. For more information about our farming techniques, and the testing we undergo, please click here

Quotes for this week:

What day is it?” asked Pooh.
It’s today,” squeaked Piglet. 
My favorite day,” said Pooh.”
Winnie the Pooh

Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are
to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be
alive - it's such an interesting world. It
wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew
all about everything.
~ Lucky Montgomery
