Tasty and Healthy - November 15, 2012

Greetings! Happy "National Bundt Pan Day"! May today find you and your loved ones doing well.  To the left is a photo of our Mustard Greens field. We also want to take this opportunity to wish you an "early" Happy Thanksgiving. We hope for safe traveling to you and your loved ones, and a very enjoyable time for all.

Only 7 more days 'til Thanksgiving!
We are excited to announce that our Mustard Greens and Turnips are now being harvested in time for Thanksgiving. Mmmmm.

Because Mustards belong to the Cruciferous Family, they are extremely healthy and versatile, full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Please click here for full details.

Presently we are harvesting our Yellow Summer Squash, White Radish, Mustard Greens, Turnips and Zucchini - all pesticide-free. 

Currently planted on the farm, but not yet ready for harvest:

  • Eight-ball Zucchini (our speciality)
  • Yellow Zucchini
  • Pole Beans
  • Yellow Beans
  • Red and White Swiss Chard (another specialty)
  • Kale
  • Broccoli
  • 5,000 collard plants! (biggest seller)

It will be another 10-40 days before most of these are ready for harvest.
The Kale and Swiss Chard required replanting due to the amount of rain in October. We'll keep you posted when they are ready.

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

Be Thankful Quotes for this week:

Pain makes you stronger, tears make you braver, heartbreak makes you wiser. 
So thank the past for a better future.

Whatever may be, whatever may happen, 
lift your head high with thankfulness and 
enthusiasm. For when you so choose, 
the best is yet to come.
Ralph Marston

“Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. 
If you concentrate on what you don't have, 
you will never, ever have enough”
