Tasty and Healthy - August 9, 2012

Greetings and welcome to this week's newsletter! Summer is in full swing. Hard to believe that doors will soon open in Tampa Bay Area Schools. (please note change in locations this week only)

Cool salads are a summer favorite. Try adding the unexpected - some cooked black-eye peas (or Conks and Zippers, too). Shred some carrot, cucumber, olives, cooked pasta and maybe a little cheese to jazz up your salad this evening!

Have you driven along Mondon Hill Road from Cooper Terrace, Preston Road to Weatherly Road? Both sides of Mondon Hill Road resemble lakes. Between rains, we are clearing our fields to plant Autumn and Winter Crops.

Pesticide-free Okra is still slowly trickling in. 

If interested in SHELLED black-eye peas, conk peas, or zipper 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.

Quotes for this week:

Do not spoil what you have by desiring
what you have not;
but remember that what you now have
was once among the things you
only hoped for.
~ Unknown

Kindness and intelligence don't always deliver us from
the pitfalls and traps. There is no way to take the
danger out of human relationships.
~ Barbara Grizzuti Harrison

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