Tasty and Healthy - December 27, 2012

Greetings! Can it really be that we are nearly in 2013? Time keeps moving faster, and it seems the "older" we get, the faster time flies! We hope your holiday celebrations were memorable, enjoyable and relaxing. 

Our wishes are a safe, healthy 2013 for one and all, and that everyone's Needs are met during these "less than prosperous" times. We have some great seasonal and party recipes to share this week. Just scroll down to view them.

To see which Winter Crops are currently being harvested, please see the highlighted areas below. 

Our Greens are in! 

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

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

  • Red and White Swiss Chard
  • Broccoli
  • Spinach
  • Beets

The New Year is coming in ten days! Do your family and friends celebrate with the Traditional Southern "Hoppin' John" recipe for good luck? 

We have ONE box of fresh frozen black-eye peas left. 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

A big thanks from Gran'ma Angie for recycling your shopping bags with us. Please keep them coming!

Quote for this week:

"Do It Anyway"

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered; Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway.

Mother Teresa
