Welcome to the blog.

Quick reminder about pickup!  It will be hot so the earlier you pickup your box the better quality your veggies will be in!  Look for something a little odd...fresh fennel in your shares this week. The white veggie with green top.....fennel potato soup sounds good to me!  See recipes up at www.allseasons-farm.com.    Also snap peas and green beans, cucumbers, and more tomatoes.  It is a time of bounty but I can see the beginnings of the end as this summer heat does in the cucumber and tomato vines.  The peppers seem to love this weather as well as the new squash we just planted.....o and the eggplant loves it as well.  Picking the last of the blueberries this week, they are few and thinly populated.   Starting to prepare beds for fall.  Bring boxes if you have any at home!   Check your account and get balance paid if there is one.....thank you so much!  What fun it has been this year of cold, then rain, then heat, then more heat....whats to come next?  Thats the glory of it all!!! 

your farmer, jill

Bring back your boxes please!

Members will enjoy heirloom slicing tomatoes, beets, pac choi, lettuce, radishes and zucchini this week!.  Quite a combo and quite possible due to this weird weather year!  The zucchini may be green or yellow, but they are both great.....small seeds and such a mellow taste.  I like them raw, no additions....but great with any dip or hummus.  Scoup them out and add tomatoes or any of your fav veggies and cheese and mix with the scooped out part and bake in the oven!  Veggies boats.

Tomatoes are in!  First of the cherry tomatoes are ready this week for members.  Also cucumbers are in as well as more lettuces, cutting celery and kale and radishes.  The radishes may have a little heat since the heat has been high.  Remember the cutting celery is a great addition to salads and soups and can be used in any recipe calling for celery.  

We planted sweet corn this week which is about the last recommended planting date for corn here.....keep your fingers crossed.  Green beans coming along nicely if no critters get them....should see some zucchini next week.  

As always......CALL or TEXT if you will be late at the Coop so I can get your share in the cooler when I get there.    take care, your farmer. jill

Radishes are back again.....still sweet and crunchy!  there are wonderful simple radish salad recipes at www.allseasons-farm.com.  click on "recipes" on the right side of the page.  Chard has a come back this week along with cutting celery and some baby potatoes.......everything you need for a nice warm soup with lentils I find best with chard.  still have a little rice left? that would be good in the soup as well.  a nice head of lettuce is also in your share......so enjoy!

the blueberries continue to grow, but still green.  the strawberries are just not doing well in all the rain....zuchinni and cucs are setting fruit and we should see some white turnips next week.  we appreciate your patience in this wettest coldest of springs we have experienced since we started.  the lettuce of course loves it.....as do the potatoes and garlic and apples trees and blueberries!  we have ALOT of nice looking kale......if members want extra kale please let me know.  it can be frozen for smoothies or soup to be eaten later in the year.

Members will enjoy radishes, finally after so many requests!  Kale, Chinese cabbage, spinach, and some local non GMO brown rice.   Part of the mission of our CSA is to introduce several local products that you may not be aware of.  This rice is available for purchase online directly from the seller who has been to the winter farmers market several times.  We love his product!  It will be great as the base for a stir fry of the goodies in your box this week.  Hopefully you will think of ordering more from him and supporting his new business.  

White turnips are coming on, our snap peas were planted for the second time, green onions and potatoes doing well, beets and radishes are finally taking off.....all this rain and cold has made for a challenging spring!  There is a shortage of area strawberries due to all the fungus in the berries from damp no sun days.....I strive for at least two boxes with strawberries but it may not happen this year.   

your farmer, jill

Members will enjoy fresh strawberries, mixed lettuce, radishes, carrots, and mint!  As we were sipping our mint juleps on Derby Day last Saturday, I thought.....o we should have included MINT this week!  Juleps are easy to make....fill a frosted glass with lots of ice....take a mint sprig and run it around the rim of the glass....add equal amounts of Kentucky bourbon and sugar water (just mix water and sugar to your taste or use white syrup)  crunch another mint stir, add a new mint sprig to the top.  Its a nice cool drink but dont think about going anywhere!   Mint is also nice just added to water each day......great for the stomach.  Understanding the importance of adding a variety of good organic  herbs to your foods and drink throughout the week will go a long ways in keeping your system detoxed regularly versus these once a year detoxes I read about.  

With all the rain, the strawberries and carrots dont look all that great...but the garlic, apple trees, potatoes are all looking happy.  We are seeing the first little tomatoes forming after the flowers.  Zucchini is now planted as well as cucumbers.  Cant wait.  In the meantime......look for more greens and what root crops we can muster up.
