Tasty and Healthy - November 8, 2012

Greetings! Happy "Cook Something Bold and Pungent Day"! We will share a bold recipes. To the left is a photo of our Mustard Greens field. We are excited to announce that our Greens should be ready for Thanksgiving. Mmmmm.

As always, we hope this week's post finds you and your family doing well. 

Great response on the U-Pick Green Beans!

We'll do it again next Spring.

Thanks for stopping by the farm to pick.

Presently we are harvesting our pesticide-free Yellow Summer Squash, White Radish and Zucchini!  

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

  • Eight-ball Zucchini (our speciality)
  • Yellow Zucchini
  • Turnips
  • Pole Beans
  • Yellow Beans
  • Red and White Swiss Chard (another specialty)
  • Kale
  • Broccoli
  • Mustard Greens
  • 5,000 collard plants! (biggest seller)
Mustards will be ready some time next week.

It will be another 20-50 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

Quotes for this week:

A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves.
- Amelia Earhart -

“Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution.” 
~ Khalil Gibran

“I would rather make mistakes in kindness and compassion 
than work miracles in unkindness and hardness.”
~ Mother Teresa
