Tasty and Healthy - March 21, 2013

Greetings, and welcome to this week's Tasty and Healthy newsletter. 

March 21 is National Common Courtesy Day. It's the perfect day to thank you for your many courtesies in extending friendship, support and kindness which keeps our little farm going. Thanks for your ongoing support so we can continue farming, bringing you the freshest product available! 

Some fields will be turned under in the coming weeks to introduce the richness of "greens" back to Mother Earth. By tilling the plants back into the soil, we enrich it naturally, instead of using more conventional means, which tend to change the consistency of the soil.

To see which Winter Crops are currently being harvested on Beasley Farm, please see the highlighted areas below. For Kale or Swiss Chard, please phone the farm. We will cut it especially for you to keep it at its freshest.

Collards (shown below) belong to the Cruciferous Family. They are extremely healthful and versatile, full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Please click here for information about Greens.

Because Greens are extremely perishable, we ask our customers to special order them if picking up at a satellite location. At the farm, we keep them in children's swimming pools of water.

Currently planted on the farm, but not yet ready for harvest:
  • Beets
  • Yellow Squash
  • Zucchini
  • Scallop Squash
  • Yellow Zucchini
  • Okra
  • Green Beans
  • Spinach
  • White and Red Radishes
  • Kale
  • Spinach

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:

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most 

important, have the courage to follow your heart and 
intuition. They somehow already know what you truly 
want to become. Everything else is secondary. " 
- Steve Jobs

Thanks always for your continuing support and encouragement.
