Greetings! We hope this week's post finds you and your family doing well.
Is it really October already? October does not mean changing leaf colors here in Florida, but it does "feel" different somehow. We can "taste" the hint of celebrations soon to come, and anticipate holidays with family members and special friends.
New! We're trying out a new location on Sunday. Please see the details below.
Currently planted on the farm, but not yet ready for harvest:
- Eight-ball Zucchini (our speciality)
- Yellow Zucchini
- Yellow Squash
- Green Beans
- Pole Beans
- Yellow Beans
- Red and White Swiss Chard (another specialty)
- Mustard Greens
- 5,000 collard plants! (biggest seller)
It will be 60-90 days before these are ready for harvest.
Pesticide-free Okra is currently being harvested on the farm. Try it in casseroles, soups, fried, baked, roasted and grilled (Recipes on the right).
Green and Red Bell Peppers
Red and Green Jalapenos (be sure to remove the seeds!)
White Skin Potatoes
Florida BiColor corn on the cob!
Johnny Golds Apples
Golden Delicious Apples
Sunday, GRAND REOPENING! On October 7 8am-3pm we will be at the Grand Reopening of the Airport Farmers and Flea Market. This market is under-roof for your convenience and comfort - rain or shine. Several local growers have been invited to staff booths. Look for our Beasley Farm trailer, as we will be located in Booths 50-51, in the middle of the market. If this location proves beneficial, we will try to make Sunday a regular offering to our customers. The Market is located just off Hwy 41 at 17375 Spring Hill Drive, Brooksville.
What do I want?
What am I going to choose today?
And it happens that I always choose blissfulness.
It is my choice, it is my life.
